Goodnight to all that

Illustrator and author Bob Staake’s Bad Children’s Books (via Kottke and elsewhere). These are in the grand tradition of ‘children’s books you’ll never see‘, a meme that has been circulating the web for many years, originally a Washington Post competition back in 1998 (Staake has a cartoon on that archived page, which perhaps hints at his inspiration). Ironically, some of the titles in that WP link – and maybe even some of Bob Staake’s – might make the transition into actual books, such is the nature of contemporary publishing. See also Go the F**k to Sleep and Goodnight Keith Moon (available in full here) and OMG That’s Not My Child.
