The Internet was aflutter Tuesday when Donald Trump's eldest son tweeted out an email exchange between him and a Russian music executive who offered him intel on his father's political opponent Hillary Clinton. Gleeful at the potential smoking gun provided by the emails (and The New York Times report that followed), the good people of Twitter came up with some hilarious alternative children's book titles for Don Trump Jr. It's all the fun of the Trump Twitter book reports — just, uh, fun sized.
The titles are all thanks to the efforts of HuffPost Comedy, who tweeted out an open call to flood the hashtag #DonJrChildrensBooks — and that open call wouldn't have been complete, of course, unless the HuffPost offered its own take on a classic: Donald Jr. and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day. It wasn't long before other parodies involving Trump Jr. began to flood in.
Drawing inspiration from The Chronicles of Narnia, tons of Dr. Seuss, and even the seminal, bowel movement-normalizing classic Everybody Poops, the news-cycle-ravaged-masses of the Internet were quick to tackle the various cultural highs and lows surrounding this latest email-related news.
Here are just a few highlights to build your own political scandal summer reading list:

Are you there, Dad? I need a Lawyer.
It still feels a little unfair to bring Judy Blume into this, though.

As investigators continue to seek answers to the countless questions raised by Trump Jr.'s email reveal — and public interest shows no sign of waning — it's unclear whether the ending will be all that happy for the oldest Trump son.
