If daddy doesn't love you and your uncle touches your private parts, here's a book for you.
Good lord! Do I really even have to talk about this page? Let's count the disturbing things about this... First of all, IT'S A DEPICTION OF CHILD MOLESTATION IN A CHILDREN'S BOOK!!! The crude children's book illustration makes it even worse. Oh, and don't even get me started on the look on Uncle Pete's face. It gives me chills. His eyes! THEY'RE STARING INTO MY SOUL!!! And yet, as bad as all this is, do we really need the graphic description in the book's text? Seriously? I mean, I know you want a kid to know what's wrong so he doesn't get tricked like poor Alfie does, but can't you just boil that down to "People don't touch you here. You don't touch people here. You don't keep secrets from your parents." Isn't that all you need. Plus, to add a slight bit more disturbedness, doesn't he kinda look like Linkara's avatar?
Oh, and by the way, we're only a third of the way through the book. I already feel dirty. Can it get worse?
