When T.S. Eliot penned ‘April is the cruellest month’ in his poem The Waste Land, he might or might not have been prophetic about London-based Marna Gilligan’s kiddy picture book adaptation of the masterpiece dubbed The Waste Land For Babies.

Gilligan first created the book complete with simplified lines and watercolor illustrations as a first-Christmas gift for her friends’ baby and has launched a Kickstarter appeal to print the book. It looks pretty fun.
