From updated versions of classic fairy tales all the way to original stories full of raw hate and vitrol, GARY DAVIDSON takes the children's story back to its cruel, bitter, heartless and vulgar roots. Lessons in today's life, unheeded warnings, political satire, and immorality tales abound in this collection of bedtime stories no child should know until they've already had their innocence ripped from them like a trout plucked from the river for dinner. From a tale about a century old majestic pine that ends up as nothing but a bunch of worn, broken and discarded toothpicks (just like today's employees), to a story about a murderous Ice Cream truck driver prowling suburban streets for his next tasty morsel, BEDTIME STORIES FOR BAD LITTLE CHILDREN are the stuff of nightmares, and too often the very Grimm realities of our tiny futile lives. But seriously, don't give this to sensitive readers, you'll just spoil the surprise of aging for them...
