Uncle Shelby’s ABZ Book: A Primer for Adults Only
Uncle Shelby’s ABZ Book is absolutely hilarious and definitely written for adults, not kids. And by adults, I don’t mean x-rated…just snarky, rude, and inappropriate.
As you can see, Shel Silverstein’s humor is in full force in his book of ABZ’s.
Poor daddy needs a haircut because he spends all his money on toys and oatmeal for his kids…see the scissors?
A delightful solution that is sure to make mommy and daddy happy…
Look! There is even a coupon for a REAL LIVE PONY!
This book is perfect for an adult with a quirky, slightly off-color sense of humor. In other words…this book is perfect for me. After all, I bought myself this coffee mug because I couldn’t stop laughing when I saw it.
Yes, I have read this book to my kids (they are older…not recommended for young children) and we have all enjoyed it.
P is for Pterodactyl: The Worst Alphabet Book Ever
P is for Pterodactyl is my all-time favorite alphabet book for adults. It points out the flaws and absurdity of the English language. Unlike Uncle Shelby’s ABZ Book, this one goes for more subtle humor.
P is for Pterodactyl chooses cleverly chooses words that do not fit in with the standard rules of English, making each page funny. This book would be great for teachers and homeschool moms alike.
I love this page, K is for Knight…because it then goes on to use as many words possible that start with K but make the “n” sound. The writer in me finds this hilarious!
M is for Mnemonic. Does anyone else find it hilarious that you basically need a mnemonic device to remember how to spell mnemonic?
And this sentence is sheer brilliance: We can enjoy quinoa and quiche by the quays of Qatar. I really kind of want to be BFF’s with the author of this book.
V is for Vulnerable: Life Outside the Comfort Zone by Seth Godin
And on a slightly more serious note, V is for Vulnerable. Okay, this book isn’t actually funny…but it is an alphabet book for adults.
This book is written in the classic Seth Godin style. It is interesting, thought-provoking, and encouraging. He makes you think and will encourage you to grow.
I appreciate his gentle honesty and ability to suggest a better, more productive way of thinking.
Heros are people who take risks for the right reasons.
And if you’re even half as snarky as I am you might also enjoy these coloring books for adults.
