Children's book

I saw this URL on usenet today. This is just creepy. Creepy

Here's a few others:

O'Reilly for Kids

A Day No Pigs Would Die

Fearful Stories and Vile Pictures to Instruct Good Little Folks

Eeeeek. Rest assured that these will not be on my children's bookshelves.

A Day No Pigs Would Die is a young adult title that has been around for quite some time. It's not been popular in my library for the time I've been in charge, but kids of that middle school age seem to want to indulge in other gruesome reading--my scary stories books are always out.

The Vile stories... made me think about the Grimm Brothers and their stories. We may be more familiar with waterd down versions, but the originals are pretty gruesome. And the origins of Mother Goose were cautionary tales--don't know about Vile Stories...

I heard author Gordon Korman speak at a school library conference. He writes adventures for those intermediate to middle school kids. He told about finding topics, and thinking about the books that are out there inspired his book (award winning, at that) No More Dead Dogs.

They certainly wont be on Riley's book shelf either. Did you read the excerpt of the last one on your list about the naughty thumb sucker. The pictures were enough to scare me without reading it! There's no way I'd let a kid read that.
