Leído: Highly inappropiate tales for young tales de Douglas Coupland y Graham Roumieu

Douglas Coupland, Graham Roumieu, Highly inappropiate tales for young tales. London: William Heinemann, 2011. 131 p.

Continuo con mis lecturas en inglés, en este caso una selección de cuentos de Douglas Coupoland, sobre historias altamente inapropiadas para jóvenes. Cada cuento explica una historia más bien desagradable sobre mala gente, que al final, a menudo, se salen con la suya. El que más me ha gustado, el de Sandra, la niñera, el que menos el de Kevin, el coche.
In the grand tradition of Edward Gorey's Gashlycrumb Tinies, Tim Burton's Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy and Hillaire Belloc's Cautionary Tales for Children, comes Douglas Coupland and Graham Roumieu's Highly Inappropriate Tales for Young People.

Ever wonder what would happen if Douglas Coupland's unhinged imagination met Graham Roumieu's insane knack for illustrating the ridiculously weird? The answer is seven deliciously wicked tales featuring seven highly improbable, not only inappropriate, characters, including Donald the Incredibly Hostile Juice Box, Hans the Weird Exchange Student, Brandon the Action Figure with Issues and Kevin the Hobo Minivan with Extremely Low Morals. If you are over the age of consent, seriously weird or just like to laugh, you'll love the unlovable miscreants who unleash their dark and unruly desires on every page of these unsuitable, completely hilarious tales.

Los cuentos:
Donald, the incredibly hostile juice box
Sandra, the truly dreadful babysitter
Hans, the weird exchange student
Brandon, the action figure with issues
Cindy, the terrible role model
Kevin, the hono mivan with extremely low morals
Mr. Fraser, the undead substitute teacher
