When Reading To Your Children Goes Horribly Wrong
Meet children's author Suzy Kline
She authored a book that I chose to read to my children called 'The Hole Book'
Below is what she wrote in this book... word for word. You will soon see why I quickly stopped reading this book to my child last night.
I couldn't stop laughing. Especially when I noticed that the book was full of illustrations of cats, gerbils, skunks, and construction workers bending over.
The Hole Book, by Suzy Kline
A lot of holes are embarrassing,
Some holes are fun.
You can swim and fish in holes,
put the ball in holes
and eat sweet holes.
But if you eat too many of those,
you get other holes!
Some holes are important homes.
My home has important holes.
Holes are even a part of people's work.
But the best part about holes is that
you can make one yourself and...
put your finger in it.
But wait, it gets better.
Here's a short list of Suzy Klines other books that once again caused me to laugh uncontrollably as I read each title.
Mary Marony and the Chocolate Surprise
The Horrible Harry's Secret
Herbie Jones and the Dark Attic
Herbie Jones and the Monster Ball
What's the Matter with Herbie Jones?
Mary Marony and the Snake
Song Lee and the Hamster Hunt
Who's Orp's Girlfriend?
Orp and the FBI
Horrible Harry and the Christmas Surprise
Horrible Harry and the Green Slime
Song Lee in Room 2B
I still can't stop laughing. This lady is absolutely f'd up.

Reminds me of the time I shot Pepsi out my nose when the dude on QVC announced the video series for children that they were selling entitled...are you ready?
No lie. He quickly followed up by saying, "It's about wildlife folks."
Yeah, I bet it is.
oh man, I am laughing so hard right now just reading your DESCRIPTION of this book. I cannot even imagine if I was actually reading one of these.9:25 PM
