One of Anders and Danica’s favorite books to read at bedtime is Look! A Book by Bob Staake. If it isn’t a part of your home library yet, I highly recommend it. The illustrations are amazingly detailed and, on top of being a great read, each page is a seek and find. Every time we read it we find something new.
Recently, I stumbled across a different kind of project by Staake. One geared less towards children and more towards a parent in need of a chuckle. Who knew a children’s book illustrator could have such an adult sense of humor?
Staake has created a collection of what he calls “Bad Little Children’s Books,” satirical parodies of kid literature covers from the 40s, 50s, and 60s.
Check them out after the jump:
