Cute Emergency?

When I picked up Cute Emergency, all I knew was to expect pictures of cute animals. I had never heard of @CuteEmergency on Twitter so didn't know what the "standard" was for these pictures.

The outline of the book is supposed to move from "mild" cases of cute emergency all the way to "severe" cases, presumably, then, the picture cute-ness increases the further along you go in a book. Each page has a cute picture of an animal (dogs and cats are the most common, but there are a couple hedgehogs and less "standard" animals thrown in for good measure) with accompanying descriptive text.

Some of the pictures are pretty adorable and made me laugh out loud. Others just made me smile. But, honestly, a lot of them were just nice, but didn't offer the level of cuteness I expected. And I noticed no difference in cuteness from the various prescription levels.

There is also mention of cursing and a couple innuendos in the book - not want I want laying around for my children to pick up and wonder about when they want to look at the cute animals.

If you are familiar with @CuteEmergency and love what you see, then you will love this book. Familiarizing yourself with the Twitter account gives you an idea of what to expect from the book, which is nice. So if you are on the fence about the account, I'd say: skip this book.
