Serious Novels Imagined as Children’s Books on Tumblr

chabon

Imagine Cormac McCarthy‘s The Road, Michael Chabon‘s The Wonder Boys and Jonathan Franzen‘s The Corrections told through drawings in a children’s book.

Jerry Puryear has done  just this. He has created a Tumblr page called Misguided Paeans, which is dedicated to children’s book adaptations of serious adult novels. ”A poorly advised amalgam of literary fiction and children’s books,” explains Puryear on the website.

The regularly updated  collection is very entertaining and worth checking out.  (Via Slate).
