N is for Nostromo, a vessel in space / O is for Oh my God, an alien is eating Kane’s face!

Those lines could (but probably won’t) be part of a new Little Golden Book based on Alien, Ridley Scott’s famously kid-unfriendly horror/science fiction movie. Golden/Disney will publish the unlikely adaptation next year, Entertainment Weekly reports.

A Is for Alien: An ABC Book will be a “light-hearted reimagining of the iconic movie Alien [that] will delight fans young and old, as well as Little Golden Book collectors [throughout] the universe,” the publisher says.

Alien delighted and shocked viewers upon its release in 1979. The film launched the career of Sigourney Weaver, who starred as Ellen Ripley, a warrant officer aboard the spaceship Nostromo; other cast members included Tom Skerritt, Harry Dean Stanton, and John Hurt.

In the movie, Ripley and her fellow crew members encounter an alien on their ship. The creature, designed by artist H. R. Giger, torments the crew, killing all the members except Ripley and Jones, an adorable ginger cat. The film, known for its enormously unsettling violent scenes, was a hit with audiences and spawned three sequels, two prequels, and three other related films.

Golden/Disney echoed the film’s famous tagline in its description of the book, writing, “In space no one can hear you giggle as you read this Little Golden Book featuring the characters from the classic movie Alien!”

A Is for Alien: An ABC Book will start haunting children’s dreams on July 9, 2024.
