I want this book “Movies R Fun!: A Collection of Cinematic Classics for the Pre-(Film) School Cinephile”! Here’s the description: “Let’s face it, reading sucks … but movies are fun! In this children’s picture book parody for grown-ups, Pixar writer and artist Josh Cooley presents the most hilariously inappropriate—that is, the best—scenes from contemporary classic films in an illustrated, for-early-readers style. Terrifying, sexy, and awesome scenes from such favorite films as Alien, Rosemary’s Baby, Fargo, Basic Instinct, Seven, The Silence of the Lambs, Apocalypse Now, The Shining, and many more are playfully illustrated and captioned to make reading fun and exciting for kids who never grew up.”
