O Discordia! I am a big fan of The Dark Tower franchise and one of the things that I really liked was how Stephen King wove himself into the story. I also liked how you read books within books in some parts, it’s like Bookception. One book inside the book is the kids book Charlie the Choo-Choo. The thing that tripped me out so much with that I thought those exact things about Thomas the Tank Engine when my son was little. Thomas and his pals gave me the creeps.
Fans of The Dark Tower will want to grab this actual book of Charlie the Choo-Choo. I don’t think kids will get the demonic look of Charlie, but who knows.
Naturally the book is written by Beryl Evans, one of Stephen King’s pseudonyms, and has suitably creepy artwork. The book is at ThinkGeek for $14.99 (USD). If you haven’t read The Dark Tower series, grab the box set here.
