Are coloring books always for kids? Not according to publisher I Love Mel. The publisher released a humorous coloring book designed for adults called Colour Me Good Arrggghhhh!! and filled with images from classic horror flicks. Ordinarily, this wouldn't be controversial, as adults interested in horror and humor titles would be happy to buy the book.
The issue arrived when UK retailer Tesco put the book up for sale on their website, categorizing it as a title designed for 5 to 8 year olds. Needless to say, parents weren't pleased with the rated R publication being sold to kids.
The publisher defended his creation noting, "The front cover ... features a drawing from the horror movie ‘Psycho’ in which a woman is stabbed to death in the shower," said Elliott. "I believe this one image is a fairly large clue this is not a book aimed at children."
