Spoof Covers that Tell Dark Tales

Children’s books were always meant to tell happy stories to the kids while hiding the ugly truths of the world from them until they became more mature. On the same note, thes golden books were meant to buoyantly teach the kids a lesson or two.

Having worked on numerous covers of good children’s books, it looks like Bob Staake got possessed with a little bit of the devil. Instead of continuing with his “good” work, the Massachusetts-based book illustrator felt like doing something else. In this case, he chose to design a politically incorrect series titled “Bad Little Children’s Books”.

Bob reimagines a series of children’s books by sarcastically creating twisted covers that tell dark tales in a spoofy manner. This hilarious collection features devilish titles such as “Peeping Tommy Goes Cougar Hunting” and “Polly Paints a Penis.” So take a look and try not to laugh out loud at some of these very creative titles.
