A couple of years ago, book publisher Ladybird released a series of their popular children’s books aimed at grownups. While the classic tales were renowned, wholesome books for young readers, the updated series was fantastically dark; with titles including ‘The Ladybird Book of Psychedelic Drugs’ and ‘How to Genetically Modify Insects’.
Since the series was released in 2015, nostalgic adults with a sense of humor have been making their own disturbing children’s book covers. Along with Ladybird – some other big names including Little Golden Book, Scholtastic and Sweet Valley also get a horror makeover. Here’s a few of our favorites.
