Mum Creates Child Friendly Story of Daenerys From Game of Thrones
Loving Literature and wanting to share your favourite stories with your loved ones and children can be tough when your kids are young and the books you love have some racy or violent plotlines.
That’s why this mother made her new daughter a Princess Daenerys children’s book.
Bloody hell, I really get the sentiment behind this one. I’m a big fan of Literature myself and there are tonnes of books on my shelf that I’d love to share with my little dude and dudettes.
The reality is though, that unfortunately, Palahniuk’s Choke doesn’t make for a great bedtime story and neither does It. Can you imagine: “He hadn’t pooed in days. The ball was firmly stuck in his bottom,” or, “And then the pretend clown told the boy to come into the sewer and play with him.”
Of course, I haven’t acted on that and gone and made children’s versions of them for my cherubs like the mum behind this Princess Daenerys book, but what a f*****g grouse idea. I think I’m going to try it with Cormac McCarthy’s Blood Meridian. “The Judge could never die. So he played the violin for everyone and danced a jaunty dance.” Failing that, there’s always Patrick Suskind’s Perfume. “Her hair smelled so nice he knew she had to help him make the greatest perfume ever!”
The mum behind the adorable little picture book might have strayed from the source material and gone for more of a feminist Disney vibe, but I think it’s fair to say this is a great way to introduce your daughter to Game of Thrones.
And let’s be honest, any new material from A Song of Ice and Fire is great, right? Let’s just hope the daughter doesn’t grow up to wonder why the bloody hell her favourite show is doing such horrible things to Princess Dany.
It’s got to be said that this Mum has truly gone above and beyond to make sure her favourite stories can be shared with her little Khaleesi from a young age. Most people I know either wouldn’t bother, or would let their kids read anything. I actually know twelve and thirteen year old kids who are reading It. Now, it’s not my place to proselytize, but that’s just messed up and the parents either haven’t read it – because the movies are tame in comparison – or aren’t doing their job.
That’s why this Mum deserves some kudos. The ability to say, “actually, that’s not for you, but here’s something that is,” makes her a top sheila in my book. On ya, Mum.
