Dune Children's Activity Books

I found this.


As we've all known for years now, the true purpose of the internet isn't the connecting of disparate communities, or making the vast wealth of human knowledge accessible to anyone with a Netbook and a Starbucks. No, the internet is for taking the incredibly weird stuff that once might have sat in a shoebox or on a bookshelf, and spreading the lunacy as far and wide as possible. And in that arena, Meredith Yayanos WON THE WEEK over at Coilhouse with her reason-defying presentation of the children's coloring and activity books released to promote David Lynch's 1984 film version of Frank Herbert's DUNE. The brain recoils! Neon pink flame, ahoy!

I have this book and have let students use some of the pages. I'll see what I can share.

Some of the content of those "kid's" books, really are not for kids. I'll see what I can find too.

I found the "Color the Corpses" page to be in poor taste.

That's just the start. There are a lot of age-inappropriate images in that coloring book.
