Josh Cooley, a story supervisor at Pixar, has a book of illustrations now available from Chronicle Books called Movies R Fun!: A Collection of Cinematic Classics for the Pre-(Film) School Cinephile (Lil’ Inappropriate Books) that puts classic R-rated movie scenes into the children’s book format.
The book includes 39 illustrations inspired by scenes from films including: Alien, Rosemary’s Baby, Fargo,Basic Instinct, Seven, The Silence of the Lambs, Apocalypse Now, and The Shining. The book is playfully drawn, but warning, this book is not for kids!
“I was just thinking of the humor of making those movies that aren’t for kids look like they are appropriate for kids — which they totally aren’t!” Cooley told The Daily Californian. “It’s basically for us — it’s for the ones that grew up liking these movies and liking children’s books and seeing what that would look like together.”
