If Children’s Books Were Written For Adults

The best thing about children’s books is that they can sometimes take a sad or difficult-to-talk-about situation and put it in a context that doesn’t seem so bad. So, we wondered why they didn’t write those kinds of books for adults, too. Here are 10 examples we want to see on bookshelves soon.

    If the above commenters had poor childhoods because they got fucked by their dads, it’s not Grover’s fault.

    So uh… grover was the scary monster that someone else woke up to? Or… Grover woke up to a scarier monster, and had to get drunk to wipe his mind? It was scary because, he was drunk when the other monster woke up or that Grover is actually using PCP too? I think these were zen koan jokes man.
