A lot of people have been wondering about a 'dubious scene' in a Biff and Chip book. On Monday, a lot of people relived their childhoods. They did so through the Biff and Chip books. A man called Ed Brody pointed out "dubious scenes" in one of the titles, and then other people shared similar findings. Suddenly, we all realised that the illustrator was seemingly hiding amusing, suspect subplots in children's reading material. The Oxford Reading Tree books, famous across the land thanks to their ubiquity in primary schools, aren't as innocent as we might have imagined.

Somewhat dubious scenes spotted in the background of a friend's 4yo's school book pic. The scene shows Wilma in the foreground playing in a river with a stick, but in the background there is a group of three men who disappear into a bush, before being followed by a very shocked pensioner. Sorry but that is brilliant. Can't stop laughing at that granny's reaction.
