About the book

Child: ‘I wish I was a cat.’ 

Grandparent: ‘Why’s that, dear?’

Child: ‘So I could see what my bottom tastes like.’

Children are at their funniest when they’re trying to be serious, and their earnest attempts at mastering the English language are a goldmine of unintentional humour, from the charming to the ludicrous, and from the profound to the downright X-rated. Enjoy this bumper edition of side-splitting spelling slip-ups and hilarious homework howlers.
