NOT recommended reading

image taken from sweetjuniper.com

Sweet Juniper! did a post not long ago featuring a book called Amy's Doll. They included a link to the post I did about the book The Lonely Doll. Come to find out, they have quite a collection of books they've labeled, Terrifying Nixon-era Children's Books. They posted one that caught my attention in particular, being police related and all, entitled What it's Like to Be a Policeman. Some of the captions, as he mentions, are made up, but it is funny nonetheless.

Sweet Juniper! is a very fun and interesting blog to read. Most of the posts are written by Jim, a stay at home dad of 2 young children. He chronicles their adventures and finds in Detroit, Michigan. His is recommended reading.

I'm thinking I may have to get this for Hubs as a gag gift. Maybe recommended torture reading for the graduates?

Oh I saw this ages ago on Jim's site! Very frightening. But Sweet Juniper! Gotta love it.

Thanks for the info! I'll have to check Sweet Juniper! out. I too am disturbed by some of the kiddy books they use to have, some of which were faves when I was a child. Now, some are appalling and I can't believe I liked something so harsh or trippy. Go figure.
