"Bad Little Children's Books" Pulled From Publication After Outrage Over Offensive Images

The illustrated adult humor book, published in September, came under fire recently after a blog post on Book Riot called out its offensive imagery.

Abrams Books is ceasing publication of Bad Little Children's Books at the author's request, after the illustrated adult humor book sparked outrage online this past weekend. (Arthur C. Gackley is a pseudonym and the real identity of the author is not publicly known.)
