I'll be honest, I did not receive this myself. I had to buy something for a secret santa who seemed like a hipster and bought this as a joke gift when I was drinking a bit. If you love comedy, and who doesn't, go for it. My secret santa recipient seemed to get a kick out of it.

Enjoyed the awkwardness of the book. Was surprised that each page was a "post card". The book did get lots of laughs, which was really the main goal of the giving the book as a gift in the first place.

I have "Grandma's Dead" and it's a classic! I laughed so hard that I cried. So I ordered "Why Is Daddy In a Dress" and was very disappointed. Although the animals are very cute, this book tries to hard to be funny and falls flat. Maybe one should stop with "Grandma's Dead" and call it a day.

This product is basically what's in the description. Extremely funny, yet cute, postcards. They are kind of difficult to take out of the book.

So many lolz were had while flipping through this book. I took a picture of the cover and put it on facebook and even that alone made many people laugh. 100% worth the money. Cute baby animals + hilarious questions = a REALLY good time!

The other two books are adorable, cute, and clever; this one is simply crude and vulgar. They kitten and the caption on the cover are sweet and make you smile but a great number of the cards inside include language and phrases the people who enjoyed the first books aren't likely to appreciate. I cannot and will not give you examples for reasons that I don't use language like that and I'm certain it wouldn't pass the people who monitor these reviews for content.

I feel this one book trades on the success of the first two but is absolutely and in no way the same type of book.

This is an insult to cute furry animals. Any moron could have come up with these captions. I'm wondering why I didn't spend an afternoon shopping for stock photos online, getting drunk and making up dumb things to put under them.

Got this for a friend as a secret Santa gag gift and he loved it, thought it was very funny and cute as the same time. If you know anyone with a great sense of humor they will love this!
