    It reads: "DISTURBING VIDEO: This Is A REAL Children's Book... Being Sold to CHILDREN... Parents PLEASE Make Sure That Your SCHOOL Isn't Using This BOOK!! (Wow... They Are Really Trying To INDOCTRINATE Kids)"

    Do You Want to Play With My Balls? looks very much like a regular children's book, but features numerous sexual double entendres.

    "Sure! But only if I can play with both of your balls at the same time!"

    Many parents were quick to condemn the book:

    "This is why we're reading through all of our kid's books. This is disgusting."

    "I am outraged! Children should not be exposed to this sort of thing in this sort of way."

    "By far the worst children's book ever."

    But other parents surprisingly defended it:

    "It's like Disney...they put innuendos and adult jokes in their movies. It makes it more entertaining for adults to read..."

    "PARENTS COME ON do we have to find sexual, grown up things in everything made for children?"

    Thankfully for parents everywhere, the book β€” written by the Cifaldi Brothers and illustrated by Santiago Elizald β€” is a gag book for adults, and is NOT being used in schools.

    If balls aren't your thing, another writer-illustrator team has since written another book, Do You Want to Play With My Beaver?.
