This grandmother accidentally bought a super NSFW book for her granddaughter and people are loving it

A grandmother with the best intentions almost corrupted her innocent 6-year-old granddaughter.

Tiffany, who goes by Tiffany1985B on Twitter, recently shared a hilarious story about a book her mother had purchased for her daughter. The book, titled If Animals Could Talk, seemed innocent enough, but when the family opened it up they discovered it was definitely not intended for children. 

“So my daughter picked this book out for her nightly reading. My mom had gotten it for her a couple weeks ago actually, but she hadn’t cracked it. So I was cleaning the kitchen and she sat down with my husband, Cody, to read it,” Tiffany said in a DM. 

Cody quickly learned that the book was most definitely intended for a more mature audience, and asked Tiffany if her mother bought it as a joke.

“So he brings it over to me and shows me the page with the chick on it. I immediately called my mom and asked her if she had looked in the book and she said ‘no why?’ So I started reading her a bunch of pages and she was like ‘oh my God! I got that off the kids table at Barnes & Noble!'” Tiffany wrote. 

The whole thing could have ended way worse, too. Tiffany says that her daughter was actually trying to sound out some words when Cody thought something was off.

As for Tiffany’s mother, she responded to the whole ordeal by saying, “OK, I learned my lesson! Don’t judge a book by its cover.”

Luckily, the family had a good attitude about the whole thing. Tiffany later included some photos from the book in a tweet, which has since racked up more than 8,000 retweets.

People loved the mishap, which even got the attention of the book’s co-author.
