Is this a book for future geeks or a brilliant piece of marketing? This ‘stay-at-home' server's piece of literature is a true oddity. Mommy, Why is There a Server in the House?. (Buy it Here)


"Jackie wakes up late at night and finds her parents smoking pot..." is the beginning of this not-so-traditional book, written by Ricardo Cortes. The book is a children's story of marijuana. It's Just a Plant: A Children's Story of Marijuana. (Buy it Here)


This is the very graphic front cover of Howard J. Bennett's book . It Hurts When I Poop! is a child's book for kids who are scared to use the potty. (Buy it Here)


Visiting Day tells the story of a little girl, who once a month gets ready for a journey with her grandmother to see her father. Nothing odd until the part where "the bus pulls up in front of a big old building where, as Grandma puts it, Daddy is doing a little time." Well, what she actually meant is that Daddy is a convict in prison! (Buy it Here)


Germs Make me Sick, written by Melvin Berger, gives children clear information about virus, bacteria and other related facts. Well, in times of swine flu, it might be useful after all. (Buy it Here)


No, there's nothing wrong with the front cover of Joined at Birth... it's just a shocking (very shocking) way to present a book written by Elaine Landau, which provides historical and modern examples of conjoined twins. (Buy it Here)


Robie H. Harris's It's not the stork! contains information about sex and sexuality addressed to children. It uses simple text and real words, like "penis" and "vagina." And just in case children still don't get it, it's illustrated with pretty cartoonnish and explicit pictures. (Buy it Here)


Love you forever, written by Robert Munsch, portrays each stage of a mother and her son's lives. Well, the content doesn't sound that bad, but what's with the bathroom front cover? (Buy it Here)


The Gas We Pass: The Story of Farts, written by Shinta Cho, explores all forms of flatulence. I know, it sounds kind of nasty but actually it's said to be an informative book. (Buy it Here)


Never Smile at a Monkey: And 17 Other Important Things to Remember by Steve Jenkins, explains how dangerous it can be to collect a cone shell, pet a platypus, or touch a tang fish. I hope my child doesn't become a phobic after reading this! (Buy it Here)


Where is Baby's Belly Button? written by Karen Katz includes questions, such as: where are baby's hands? where are baby's eyes? and... well, you get the picture. (Buy it Here)


If you give a cat a cupcake, written by Laura Numeroff, features a cat that first appeared in "If You Give a Pig a Party". I wonder where does someone gets the inspiration for such titles! (Buy it Here)
