UK Supermarket Withdraws Horror Colouring Book

Colour Me GoodI just want to get this off my chest. I want this freakin’ book, total nerdgasm right here my friends. So, one of our readers, Tiffany Michelle Prosser, took to our Facebook page to highlight a story which hit the BBC, and I just had to share it with you guys.

According to the site, UK supermarket Tesco, has withdrawn from sale on its website a colouring book that depicts gory scenes from horror films. The book is entitled Colour Me Good Arrggghhhh!! and is said to feature such films as Hellraiser and Psycho.

The book was wrongly marketed online to children aged five to eight in the wrong category by a third-party seller. The seller in question was Prezzybox, and the managing director, Zak Edwards, had this to say;

It was an honest mistake on our part,” said Mr Edwards. “It was categorised as a colouring book and then, unfortunately, as being suitable for children.

Apparently the error was spotted when a man searching for a birthday present for his seven-year-old grandson spotted the horror themed book on Tesco’s website. Shortly after, the product was removed.

All in all, it’s no harm done but I for one want this book. The colouring book, Colour Me Good Arrggghhhh!!, is created by East Sussex-based author Mel Elliott, and also features such iconic horror films as The Silence of the Lambs, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Jaws, A Clockwork Orange, and The Shining.
