Your Favorite Children's Books-With a Hilarious Twist!

Your Favorite Children's Books-With a Hilarious Twist!

By Chelsea Dagger

Flavorwire/Jennifer Lewis

Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, The BFG, Calvin and Hobbes—remember how much you loved those books when you were a kid (and/or last week, when you re-read them for the 1000th while lying upside-down on the couch and spraying whip cream into your mouth)? Well, prepare for that love to multiply TEN-FOLD, because the geniuses over at Flavorwire just combined your favorite childhood reads with the funniest, most memorable characters from Parks and Recreation—and the results are mind-blowingly brilliant. You can see three of the Parks and Rec-tified book covers below, and head on over to Flavorwire to check out all 12!

Ron Swanson is a paragon of manliness and bacon. He adores meat-related foodstuffs more than anyone else you have ever met—so what better cover for him to grace than Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs?

TOM HAVERFORD, I LOVE YOU. JEAN RALPHIO, WILL YOU MARRY ME. I would give up every Cheez-it I own to spend the day with these two fantastic troublemakers, whose carefree, child-like attitudes and irresistible charm make them the perfect pairing for Calvin and Hobbes.

One word: LITERALLY.

About the Author
Chelsea Dagger

Since 2010, Chelsea Dagger (known in real life as Chelsea Aaron) has been SparkLife's sweatiest editor. She's currently working on a how-to-kiss guide for teens, and when she's not conducting smooch-related research on her life-size Joseph Gordon-Levitt cardboard cutout, she's eating pancakes, stocking up on industrial-strength deodorant, and destroying everyone at Harry Potter trivia. (EXPECTO PATRONUM!)
