A title is extremely important in any genre. For some readers, it may be the reason they pick up a book at all. It is definitely a factor when purchasing, although hopefully not the only one. Here are a few hilarious and slightly disturbing titles of children’s books, some are made up…and some are not. Can you guess which ones are real and which are fake?
How to Become The Dominant Military Power In Your Elementary School
Controlling the Playground: Respect through Fear
Grandpa Gets a Casket
Dad's New Wife Robert
The Long Journey of Mister Poop
Hair In Funny Places
I Wish Daddy Didn’t Drink So Much
Don’t Make Me Go Back, Mommy. (A child’s book about satanic ritual abuse)
He Who Smelt It, Dealt It (and other kid commandments)
And as a bonus here are some very real adult book titles that sound interesting.
