I'll start with this one:



Yes, believe it or not this book actually exists. And yes, those are TULIPs in that vase.

Have anyone else encountered any strange children's books? (Bonus points if they're of a theological bent, like the one above).

Does the whole 'restaging' of Goodnight Moon as a horror story count?

Does this count as "theological", OP? I mean...a book about the Filioque...and it's bilingual!

And this one is clearly theological. I'm not sure if the person who made it has a Ditchkins-style axe to grind against Christianity, or just has a sick sense of humor:

If You Give A Cyclops A Kitten isn't actually a full-length book; it's a parody cover that was drawn by veteran children's book illustrator Bob Staake.

Other parodies made by Staake include:




Speaking of cyclopes and kittens, though, there actually was a cyclops kitten who was born a few years ago.



His remains now reside in a creation museum in Phoenix, NY.

I thought you meant Bob Staake at first and was a bit confused.

Likewise, only it was my mother who would read it to me.  I have a copy in English.  The words just do not carry the same meaning as the German.
