We’ve heard of colour by numbers and join the dots books for children, but not ones where they have to colour in blood-spattered serial killers.
Colour Me Good Arrggghhhh! features line drawings of scenes from 18-rated films such as The Shining, Hellraiser, Silence of the Lambs and A Clockwork Orange, as well as from Psycho and A Nightmare On Elm Street.
The book was listed on the Tesco website as suitable for five to eight-year-olds despite containing ‘really scary stuff’ and ‘more blood than you can shake a dagger at’.
Chris Tuckwood, 56, Spondon, Derby, stumbled across the book while looking for a birthday present for his seven-year-old grandson, Reece.
