This Hilarious Critique Of A Children's Book By An Adult Is The Funniest Thing You'll See All Month

by Elana

When you're a little kid the books your parents read to you seem so amazing. They often leave a lasting impression of literary perfection. That is until you become a parent yourself and have to read children's books to your own kids 500x a day. Suddenly rhyming gets old really fast, not to mention incredibly annoying. That's not even the worst part about children's books. Have you taken a good look at the illustrations? Can you believe people get paid to do this? Big bucks sometimes, too. Look, I'm just saying what we're all thinking. Just like Kaitlin, a young library associate who created a thread on Imgur that is taking the Internet by storm called ‘Kaitlin Critiques A Children’s Book,’ where Imgur user Kaitlin has posted each page of the children’s book A Hungry Lion or A Dwindling Assortment of Animals, with some of the most hilarious commentaries we've ever seen.

At 26 years-old, Kaitlin has said she's reviewed some 20 odd books but A Hungry Lion was the first she shared to Imgur and if we're all lucky, it won't be the last. 

Kaitlin Critiques A Children's Book

“I was extremely bored so I opened up one of the children’s books that had been checked in and just started reading it. It was a book about skiing squirrels and I thought it was hilarious so I started snapchatting my reactions to it.”

In the beginning

Originally, Kaitlin simply shared her reviews with her friends and family on Snapchat.

However, her sister encouraged her to post them on Facebook because they were just too funny.

What did she expect?

“I was surprised that people actually thought I was funny and wanted more. My friends asked me to do more and gave requests. I was pretty floored by the response on Imgur,” she said.

Wild about books

The Chicago-based woman loves doing this, saying, "anything can happen in a children’s book and that child will accept it regardless of how off the wall it is.”
