How many fucking books are there? I had to read "That's not my truck" last week. "That's not my truck. It's sides are to ridgey". WTF! £5.99 for 5 pictures of things with fun fur or something on them? They're taking the piss! "That's not my hamster". Seriously! Where's the plot?!

Coming soon:

That's not my poo. It's sides are too glittery.
That's not my poo. It's top is too floaty.
That's my poo. It's tail end is so sweetcorny!

£5.99. angry

I am so glad to be past this stage.

It makes me think fondly of Peter and Jane.

Why not just buy books second hand? - they're less annoying if they're crap then.

I wonder if everyone reads them in the same sing song way I insist Mr Raspberry should if he is on reading duty.

And the last page must be read thus:
^That's^ Tractoooooor, its headlights are sooooooooo shiny

*my Tractor, obv

OMG I loved those books, guarantee my boys would sit down quietly for ten minutes. I bought them for both nieces.

That's not my AIBU
It's not asking a question
That's not my AIBU
The question is not about reasonableness
That's not my AIBU
It's grammatically incorrect
THAT'S my AIBU
I'm not being unreasonable at all just come and agree with me

I removed them from the bookshelf when DC4 started taking an interest in them - I could not stand going through it all again. That's the point people should put forward on these 'should I have another baby' threads - can you stand reading "that's not my reindeer" another bloody time? No, then don't hmm

That's not my teen, its face is too happy.
That's not my teen, its attitude is too jolly.
Thats not my teen, its room is too tidy.
That's my teen, muttering "Fuck" under it's hoody.

In my house we need a "that's not my charger"

Its wire is too thin. Its plug is too white. Its USB socket is too, erm, USB-y. etc.

NoWayPedro Sun 05-May-13 19:33:40

Those are not my legs, they're long like a giraffe
Those are not my legs, they're brown and don't look naff
Those are not my legs, you can see ankle AND calf

Those are my legs! I won't be having the last laugh sad

NoWayPedro Sun 05-May-13 19:39:16

That's not my chin, with all that smooth skin
That's not my chin, where you can clearly see a grin
That's not my chin, on a face looking so thin

That's my chin! Now I really need a gin grin

That's not my house, its carpets are too clean.
That's not my house, its occupants are too sane.
That's not my house, its cupboards are too full.
That's not my house, its windows are too shiny.
That's my house, its decrepitude is legendarygrin.

Wishiwasanheiress Sun 05-May-13 19:45:05

I don't own one of those books (yet). Couldn't face first page after title. Mil would love it. Her intelligence level, (miow!)

NoWayPedro Sun 05-May-13 19:51:31

That's not my belly, it doesn't wobble like jelly
That's not my belly,
I never get it out, not on your nelly!
That's not my belly, looks like those on the telly

That's my belly! Obviously too much tagliatelle grin

Think I've had too much sun winetoday <steps away from thread>

My last line isn't really in the spirit of the books, it should read:
That's my house, its dust layer is so fluffygrin

fuzzpig Sun 05-May-13 19:52:38

Of course these books are an excellent reason in themselves to use a library. You can get a different one each week rather than having the same one for years wink

WafflyVersatile Sun 05-May-13 19:54:35

There is a 'that's not my poo' book, isn't there?

CSIJanner Sun 05-May-13 19:55:21

I'm going to type up of all of these tomorrow and put them to pictures ;)

BrokenBananaTantrum Sun 05-May-13 19:59:51

There is one called That's not my princess. One of the pages says "That's not my princess her fan is too fluffy" Reading this aloud made me crack up laughing. Honestly it is in there!

Inertia Sun 05-May-13 20:01:27

That's not my wedding. The children are too numerous.
That's not my wedding. The MIL is too reasonable.
That's not my wedding . The bridesmaids are too flatteringly dressed.

That's my wedding ! The money-gift poem is so trite!

TiggyD Sun 05-May-13 20:03:53

That's not my Jesus, he got Lego for Christmas.
That's not my Jesus, he went "eughh" at a leper.
That's not my Jesus, he fed 5000 people on 2 Greggs sausage rolls and 5 Fruit Shoots.
That's my Jesus! His hands are so naily!

WafflyVersatile Sun 05-May-13 20:06:32

grin

naily jebus.

I have a couple of these books....the Mumsnet versions are much better grin

ToysRLuv Sun 05-May-13 20:08:06

Oh crap, they're horrendous! Luckily we've now passed that phase, and I've put them all away, although ds would probably still occasionally like to read its not my aeroplane at 3.5, I wouldn't.

I speak my mother tongue to ds, and these books were always a total pain to try and translate in the moment. Ridgy and bumpy in a foreign language, anyone? Effing hell, I think they're the same word in my language.. I used to literally sweat from concentrating so hard confused.
