ABOUT THE CREATORS
We think kids should be exposed to the fantastic and weird at a young age.
They love monsters and mythology — why shouldn’t their alphabet books and toy shelves also be filled with these things?
That’s why we create fun, quality Lovecraft and horror themed products that the whole family will enjoy.
For us horror fans, it’s hard to really get our children right into horror at young age without causing them nightmares. Yes, some kids may already be dark and twisted already to be able to handle the madness of us (meaning us the parents). What other way though do we have that could actually help teach our kids the ABC’s while keeping the horror there? We get C is for Cthulhu, the perfect hardbound book to start teaching our kids the world of the infamous horror author world of H.P. Lovecraft.
“C is for Cthulhu: The Lovecraft Alphabet Book is a lushly illustrated, premium alphabet board book, featuring monsters and characters inspired by the mythos of H.P. Lovecraft. C is for Cthulhu is written by Jason Ciaramella, Eisner Award nominated author of comics and graphic novels (The Cape, Godzilla: Kingdom of Monsters, Magic: The Gathering), and illustrated by Greg Murphy, a brilliant digital artist and illustrator working in the toy and video game industry.” – Amazon.com
Written by Jason Ciaramella with Illustrations by Greg Murphy they made a outstanding children’s book to help teach our kids the alphabet in a not to scary way. It’s nice to finally find something that isn’t to girly or boyish and it fits for both genders equally. Meaning there’s no barbies or Ken, unicorns with glitter gliding through some rainbow enchanted fortress. Or hot wheels racing along a carpet rug with roads and towns to visit while playing with GI Joe or wrestling action figures to really help tell the story, yes that part might not be true for a book, but come on. Someone could do make it happen if it hasn’t already.
For some parents, some of the pronunciations may seem hard. Since we don’t really have an idea to correctly say some of these stuff names of HP Lovecraft characters, nowadays you have text to speech to help you with those crazy big words. Just make sure you keep repeating the text to speech a dozen times before reading this book to your child, that way when the time comes you’ll be ready.
As a final note, it’s very nice addition to the growing children books. Finally us horror lovers can finally get our young ones into the world of Horror earlier than ever, and if you aren’t into the books. Maybe a Cthulhu plush could also win the heart of your child.
