While we all love reading it can get a bit tiresome when you have little ones, especially after reading the same toddler book 15 times in a row. I loved reading to my children but now they are 12 and 20 and I read some books so many times I can still remember all the words to this day. We assume it’s these parents that this selection of parody books is aimed at!
We love these books so much, based on famous children’s books, but definitely not for children’s eyes though they should make the grown ups chuckle a little. Each book puts a very adult twist on a children’s story. Here’s the rundown on each one:
We’re Going on a Bar Hunt – Emlyn Rees
If you’re a parent you understand the logistics of organising a night out. The next World War would be easier to plan, and possibly cause less bother too as the parents in We’re Going on a Bar Hunt know full well.
The Very Hungover Caterpillar – Emlyn Rees
Continuing the theme, the second book from the same author concentrates on the managing to look after the children after said night out. We’ve all been there, and this little book for anyone who fondly remembers the original, or is always reading it to their own children.
The Very Thirsty Lady – Julie Whitley
Continuing the theme (you’d think kids were enough to drive us to drink) is The Very Thirsty Lady, a spin on the same children’s classic. If you’re wondering what the average parent drinks through, you can follow the journey here.
