You might have heard there’s a bestselling book that rewrites Pride and Prejudice and adds zombies. I think there are other classics re-told with monsters, and perhaps a few that do it the other way round (say, Frankenstein without the monster, which would be a nice existentialist fable.)
But what if this trend hits children’s books? The multi-facted writer and Westerbergian Jodi posted this on Facebook.
Sense & Sensibility & Sea Monsters? Enough with lit + monsters mashups. If I see Are You There God, It’s me Mothra, I’m gonna riot.
I actually thought the idea of Mothra coming of age sounded pretty good. I’d also like to read Superfudge vs. Godzilla (as long as we’re talking Judy). But best of all would be Willard and the Rats of NIMH.
So the gauntlet is dropped. What children’s classics/monster mashups (or horror mashups) would you like to see and/or do you most dread?
