Pressures of the adult world getting to you? Pretty much every book offers the reader a brief respite from the demands of their everyday life, but irreverent picture books for grownups go the extra mile, packaging a lot of inappropriate fun into a few short pages. I've put together a list of nine picture books for grownups you should check out below, so keep reading.
Now, there's a big difference between children's books that adults can enjoy and those made especially for the 18-and-older crowd. We can all agree that Oh, the Places You'll Go! and The Giving Tree have important lessons for people of any age, after all. But grownups take joy in reading titles like A Child's First Book of Trump for . . . different reasons.
The books on this list are all part of that latter category, although the argument could be made that some of them would be appropriate for children to read. One or two are originally intended for kids, but will be more relatable to adults who are overworked, underpaid, or just generally stressed out.
