Animals Talking in All Caps by Justin Valmassoi
A goat who wants to sell you some meth.
A giraffe who might be violating his restraining order.
An alpaca with a very dirty secret.
A cat who’s really mad at you for cancelling Netflix instant.
These are just a few of the hilariously human animals you’ll meet inAnimals Talking in All Caps. Inspired by the wildly popular blog of the same name and including some of the site’s best-loved entries as well as gobs of never-before-seen material, these pages provide a brilliantly unhinged glimpse into the animal mind.
Animals Talking in All Caps is exactly what it sounds like. It’s a bunch of animal memes. The memes have cute or funny pictures of animals with captions underneath them. From the introduction, I knew that Animals Talking in All Caps was going to be a hit. During the introduction, Justin Valmassoi had me laughing several times. I was impressed considering I hadn’t even gotten to the animals yet. Not all of the animal pictures made me laugh. In fact, a few of the jokes definitely went over my head. They left me more confused than anything else. However, a majority of the jokes made me laugh. I was laying in bed reading the book, and I kept annoying my husband by laughing so hard and wanting to show him the pictures. He ended up getting a few chuckles out of it as well. The only thing that bothered him was that the last ten percent of the book was acknowledgements. I think Animals Talking in All Caps is a must have book for a bad day. It definitely works to cheer the reader up. It also makes a great coffee table book, and is a wonderful conversation starter.
I give Animals Talking in All Caps: 4/5.

I received this book from the publisher via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. I was in no way compensated for this review.
