In and out with Dick and Jane: A Loving Parody


In and out with Dick and Jane: A Loving Parody Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Ross MacDonald, the award-winning illustrator, and James Victore, the celebrated graphic designer, have gotten together to create a parody featuring the classic kids' book characters Dick and Jane. This time around, though, our straitlaced protagonists are venturing into some rather dark, twisted, and bawdy places. The images are perfectly rendered in warm, nostalgic shades, and the tone of the text is sweet and simple, but the content leans toward sex, drugs, and violence, with healthy doses of innuendo. To top it off, this laugh-out-loud satire is situated inside a handsome, imitation-cloth volume resembling an old-fashioned kids' book.


Presents a parody of the Dick and Jane children's stories.
