Unintentional Innuendo Found In Innocent Books

A while back we showed you 20 Unintentional Innuendo Book Titles to make you giggle and guffaw, and they proved to be a huge hit.

After much perusing of the web we have found a fresh collection of unintentional innuendo found in books… This time within the text itself. They are absolutely innocent children’s books, however grown ups do have the habit of discovering innuendo where there should be none.

Prepare to be slightly disgusted at both the innuendo, and at yourself for laughing.




Don’t be disgusting, they are just playing a game!

Ain’t that the truth!

WHAT IS HAPPENING HERE?!

Errrr, what?

Oh Dick…

No. Don’t do that.

To be fair this is not innuendo. Just… Kids can be weird.

Just a little bit inappropriate?!

George was a voyeuristic young hippo

Oh sure… SLEEP.

I cannot condone what is happening to this pig

Harpo was arrested soon after.

We all know what they mean but… Really now.

I am too innocent for this type of lewdness!

What is it with all these voyeuristic animals?

Good grief! Stick its head back on!

By | Children's Literature, News, Video | No Comments
Tom Hardy has become quite the regular on Book at Bedtime since his first appearance in December 2016. The slot is the final piece of the day on the BBC channel aimed at small children, CBeebies.

Since that first appearance he’s been back several times, proving a favourite with children and mothers alike. The British heartthrob who’s played characters such as hardman Alfie in Peaky Blinders and the Krays may not seem like the first choice for reading bedtime stories but both him and his dog have been popular additions to the show.

After the success of our Brutally Honest Book Titles blog we decided to play around with children’s titles as well. Kids can be brutally honest themselves so it is almost poetic to shine that honest light on to their classic stories.

The eight titles below have had their titles removed and had a bit of harsh reality in its place. If you have any more ideas for brutally honest book titles- do let us know!

Research Shows Children Prefer to Read on Paper Rather Than Screens

By | Children's Literature, News, Reading Formats, Reading Habits | No Comments
It is often thought that, in this digital age of ever advancing technology, children are far more likely to read a book on their tablet screen rather than read from a physical book made of paper. However, recent research has shown that this may not be true.

A study that monitored the reading habits of children in Year 4 and 6, all of whom had access to eReaders such as Kindles and iPads, found that the children tended not to use those devices when it came to reading. In fact, even children who read daily seemed to prefer physical books over digital ones. Read More

By | Children's Literature, Literary Events | One Comment
From December 2017 until April this year, The Victoria and Albert Museum played host to a famous literary bear and his friends. The exhibition, Winnie the Pooh: Exploring a Classic, brings together everything from A.A. Milne and E.H. Shepard’s world of Winnie the Pooh.

While aimed predominantly at families with children who can explore the multi-sensory elements such as the Pooh Sticks bridge, there is no doubt that the exhibition also appeals to nostalgic adults like me who loved seeing the original manuscripts and illustrations. Read More

George R.R. Martin Announces Game of Thrones Children’s Books

By | Children's Literature, News | No Comments
George R.R. Martin is currently one of the most famous authors in the world and his fantasy series A Song of Ice and Fire has shot to fame since HBO adapted it into the hit TV show Game of Thrones. Martin’s novels may have a fantasy setting, but they’re distinct in the genre for their gritty realness, historic inspirations, and for not sugar-coating the real horror that is caused by war. The books are full of sex, violence, and political intrigue, and are wrapped up in an ambitious story of interwoven characters that’s more akin to Tolstoy’s War and Peace than Tolkien’s The Hobbit.
