Kiddieland by Tim Chapman

by Barb Goffman


From the anthology The Rich and the Dead (Grand Central Publishing, 2011)

Every parent who thinks they’ve successfully shielded their kid from adult matters, who remembers their own childhoods idyllically, should read this story. Because evil can exist even in children. And the kid your child is playing with could be the one person you’d definitely want to shield him from, if only you knew.

A very good story. The pages flew. Not for the extremely squeamish.
