It’s always fun when artists take horror icons out of their established worlds and place them into far different worlds, whether they’re infused with Scooby Doo or mashed up with R.L. Stine’s Goosebumps series. Now, they’ve become the stars of their very own children’s books.
BuzzFeed’s Andrew Pena is the man behind this particular art series, which turns iconic 80s horror movies into kid-friendly pieces of literature. Alien gets the Dr. Seuss treatment, for example, while killer dog Cujo takes the place of loveable dog Clifford.
Check out all of the hilarious mash-ups below, along with Pena’s comments on each of them!
