Sinister Parodies of Classic Kids Books

Are you ready to have your childhood ruined? Thomas Columbo is the creator behind Instagram account @DigitalMeddle who have become popular for their parodies of vintage children’s books.

The artist alters apparently innocent illustrations from classic books to create more modern – and significantly darker- tales. The book covers he produces are definitely not for kids, but adults will appreciate the twisted sense of humor behind his artwork. Columbo uses Photoshop to add new captions and slightly alter the illustrations to give them all new, dark meanings.

No topic is off limits, with the child characters apparently frequently drunk, drugged or planning murder. Check out some of his most hilarious creations and find out more on Instagram.
