Josh Cooley, an artist and animator for Pixar, has created a “children’s” book that should probably stay high out of any toddler’s reach. Naturally, we love it. Especially the horror scenes. This book would be an excellent addition to my coffee table, then again, I don’t have any kidlets.
Let’s face it, reading sucks…but movies are fun! In this children’s picture book parody for grown-ups, Pixar writer and artist Josh Cooley presents the most hilariously inappropriate—that is, the best—scenes from contemporary classic films in an illustrated, for-early-readers style. Terrifying, sexy, and awesome scenes from such favorite films as Alien, Rosemary’s Baby, Fargo, Basic Instinct, Seven, The Silence of the Lambs, Apocalypse Now, The Shining, and many more are playfully illustrated and captioned to make reading fun and exciting for kids who never grew up. A sly celebration of the things fans love most about these legendary films (and movies in general), this is one book that probably should not be read at bedtime.
