Age Inappropriate: Kids' Book Illustrations Based On R-Rated Movies

'Goodfellas'. 'The Shining'. 'Seven'. Obviously not kids' movies - but now we know what they might look if they were adapted into kids' books. Pixar Story Artist Josh Cooley rendered some scenes from those films (and many others) in kid-friendly illustrated style for his own book 'Movies R Fun'.

Although the images are getting lots of traction online, the book isn't available for sale. Josh actually had 1,000 hard copies made, but sold the last of them after images from the book went viral on Reddit. At the moment, he says he has no plans to print more, although "if a publisher was interested in reprinting, I'd get onboard".
