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 | No Comments
Kenyan-Mexican actress Lupita Nyong’o has added one more creative string to her bow by writing a children’s book.

Her professional life began in Hollywood as a production assistant and made her debut as an actress in 2008 with the short film East River and starred in the Kenyan television series Shuga  from 2009. After her finding her feet in the acting world Nyong’o attained a master’s degree in acting from the Yale School of Drama. She had her first feature film role in 12 Years a Slave, playing Patsey; her role in Steve McQueen’s historical drama won her the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress. The award was particularly significant as she became the first Kenyan and first Mexican actress to win an Academy Award.

Lupita Nyong’o grew up struggling with self-acceptance due to the attitudes of people around her, regarding her skin colour. Her darker complexion was often remarked upon by those around her, and at times she was compared to her lighter skinned sister. The journey to self-love was a difficult one, but eventually Lupita became the voice for young dark skinned people. Her Academy Award acceptance speech in 2014 saw her acknowledge her role as a sort of ambassador for self-love and strength of voice for those with a dark complexion.
