Grandma's Dead: Breaking Bad News with Baby Animals

Need I say more… well probably a little more. ‘Grandma's Dead: Breaking Bad News with Baby Animals’ is a book by Amanda McCall and Ben Schwartz, and according to the New York Daily News is tipped to be the popular stocking filler of 2008.

The book is full with adorable animals next to captions such as ‘Dreams don’t come true’, and ‘I’m banging your wife’, officially went on sale on the 28th October, and already has a supporting website and Facebook group (Grandma's Dead: Breaking Bad News with Baby Animals Facebook Group).

Only time will tell whether this could be the next, famous for bringing us its collection of cat pictures with silly captions, which last month stepped into the offline world with its book 'Lolcat Colleckshun'.

The book 'Lolcat Colleckshun' was a media favourite last month when it sold out websites within the first day of release. The site currently receives over 10,000 captioned photos each day, and has grown into a global phenomenon since the site was created in January 2007 (sold in September 2007 valuing the site at $2 Million).
