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?

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.

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.

Is it weird of me to want to read all these books and see what they're really like? They are just very different from the children's books I've seen or read.
