Pop Culture Imagined As Children's Books

‘And they all lived happily ever after’. It's a sentence you’ve probably never associated with stories which involve bloody vengeance via a katana sword and yuppie psychopaths killing women of the night with axes to the memorable tones of Huey Lewis And The News.

But there’s a first time for everything. Specifically after you lay eyes on these bold and wry pop culture children's book covers, putting a new spin on everything from Kill Bill to American Psycho, and, well, they're insanely brilliant.

Other cult characters to be given this unique treatment alongside The Bride and Patrick Bateman include Doc and Marty from Back To The Future (Where We’re Going We Don’t Need Roads) and Simon Pegg and Nick Frost's characters in all three of the Cornetto Trilogy, all teased on Joey Spiotto’s twitter account ahead of his Storytime series which will be hitting Gallery 1988 in Los Angeles from tomorrow.

You’ll certainly need roads to get there.
