We can just imagine the genius it will take to turn "Gering-ding-ding-ding-dingeringeding" into a vivid story for the training pants demo. But that got us thinking that maybe there's an untapped market on the Billboard Hot 100 that is ripe for the picking.
Here are our suggestions for some other chart-topping children's books:
"We Can't Stop" by Miley Cyrus
This book for the YA set involves a modest, parent-pleasing young girl named Hannah who wakes up to find herself body-swapped with a party-loving young woman named Miley. Miley's nights are spent dancing with her wild best friend Molly or at home with her old pal Mary Jane. After much clubbing, Hannah realizes she hasn't been swapped, but that Miley is her older self. Will Hannah choose to dump her new BFF's and partying ways to win back the love of her parents, or will she learn to accept Miley for who she is?
"The Monster," by Eminem, illustrations by Rihanna
The source material may be about the price of fame, but that's not going to sell books to kids (let alone accompanying toys and merchandise), so in this pop-up-book, we meet poor little Robin, who can't catch a break from her classmates at her snooty private school. As the new girl, Robin finds herself with almost no friends ... that is, until she buddies up with a monster named Marshall who speaks only in rhyme. Once she bring Marshall around, the other kids can't get enough of Robin.
"Gorilla," by Bruno Mars
A book about drunken cocaine-fueled sex would be 100 percent NSFK (not safe for kids). But what grade-schooler hasn't dreamed about having a primate pet? When a gorilla escapes from the local zoo, he finds a friend in six-year-old Bruno, the world's youngest Elvis impersonator. Bruno doesn't call the cops (or the sheriff, or the SWAT), instead offering up his tree house as refuge. There, little Bruno and his new pet gorilla discover a mutual love of dancing, bananas and fedoras.
"Get Lucky," Daft Punk
The inescapable hit of the summer is all about, well, getting lucky. Also not appropriate for kids? Think again! After a terrible rain storm, Lizzie realizes her dog, Lucky, has escaped into Central Park city on Halloween eve. Follow her as she spends an action-packed day with her robot friends searching high and low for her pooch.
"Come and Get It," Selena Gomez
What is "it?" Well, in this case not exactly what the singer had in mind. Selena didn't know what to expect when her granny came to visit from overseas for the summer, introducing her to the wonders of Italian cooking. The precocious seventh grader's intense interest in all things pasta comes to life in this hybrid cookbook/YA novel. In between dealing with an intense crush on the new boy in class and a mysterious stranger who never leaves the house next door, Selena cooks endless meals and coins a new dinnertime catchphrase, "If you're ready come and get it!"
"Mary Jane Holland," Lady Gaga
Let's get one thing straight. Gaga's ARTPOP ode to the wonders of weed does not seem like the ideal candidate for the car seat nation. Until you meet Stefanie G., who is so sick she spends most days in her room alone or at the hospital getting treatment. After her dad turns her on to one of his favorite childhood books, "The Marvelous, Miraculous Misadventures of Mary Jane Holland," Stefanie is transported into a psychedelic world full of trippy outer space adventures (to, say, "Venus") with the unpredictable Mary Jane.
