Contemporary American horror literature for children and young adults has two bold messages for readers: adults are untrustworthy, unreliable and often dangerous; and the monster always wins (as it must if there is to be a sequel). Examining the young adult horror series and the religious horror series for children (Left Behind: the Kids) for the first time, and tracing the unstoppable monster to Seuss's Cat in the Hat, the author aims to shed new light on the problematic message produced by the combination of marketing and books for contemporary American young readers.
Compilation of four activity books features stories accompanied by simple illustrated directions for creating drawings, making a surprise breakfast for Mom, folding paper airplanes, and growing plants indoors and out.
