Dick and Jane and Vampires

Why should adults get all the fun from mashups of literary works and horror tropes? The wall street journal has a review of this children’s book which adds vampires to the classic and often parodied Fun with Dick and Jane children’s books. I like the trend of taking works that have fallen out of copyright and messing with them. You can read the whole reivw over at Speakeasy – WSJ.

In general it’s a positive review, I’ve not got kids, and my only exposure to the Fun with Dick and Jane books has been people taking the pictures from the book out of context and using the fact that they used the shortened version of poor young Richard’s name. So I’m not really one to judge the book.
