Alternative Titles - Children's Books

Posted by M ws On Monday, March 26, 2012 4 comments
It is quite difficult to promote the reading habit these days because of the pervasive influence of the mass media.

Having said that, in days of old when children did read books by Roald Dahl, Enid Blyton, Agatha Christie etc., we cannot deny that such literature really broadened our minds and improved our vocabulary. Anyway take a look at the following list. I shudder as I realize how fortunate it is for us that no one has written anything along the lines of the following list of warped titles! Do add to the list - just for laughs!

  • You Are Different and That's Bad
  • The Boy Who Died From Eating All His Vegetables
  • Dad's New Wife Robert
  • Fun four-letter Words to Know and Share
  • Hammers, Screwdrivers and Scissors: An I-Can-Do-It Book
  • The Kids' Guide to Hitchhiking
  • Kathy Was So Bad Her Mom Stopped Loving Her
  • Curious George and the High-Voltage Fence
  • All Cats Go to Play
  • The Little Sissy Who Snitched
  • Some Kittens Can Sing
  • That's it, I'm Putting You Up for Adoption
  • Grandpa Gets a Casket
  • The Magic World Inside the Abandoned Refrigerator
  • Garfield Gets Feline Leukemia
  • The Pop-Up Book of Human Anatomy
  • Strangers Have the Best Candy
  • Whining, Kicking and Crying to Get Your Way
  • You Were an Accident
  • Things Rich Kids Have, But You Never Will
  • Pop! Goes The Hamster...And Other Great Microwave Games
  • The Man in the Moon Is Actually Satan
  • Your Nightmares Are Real
  • Where Would You Like to Be Buried?
  • Eggs, Toilet Paper, and Your School
  • Why Can't Mr. Fork and Ms. Electrical Outlet Be Friends?
Have a lovely Saturday!
