Take a Look Inside the New 'X-Files' Children’s Book
X-Files fans now have a way to share their favorite alien-government conspiracy show with their kids without giving them nightmares. The X-Files children's book Earth Children Are Weird just came out, and it's a cuter, tamer version of its on-screen inspiration.
Announced back in March, the book imagines what Fox Mulder and Dana Scully would be like as youngsters. Though their relationship is a whole lot less antagonistic, Mulder is still a conspiracy theorist, and Scully still has a taste for rational scientific explanations. But in this version, they have backyard camp-outs (no funny business) and only reluctantly investigate the weird noises they hear outside the tent. Mulder seems more scared than curious this time around, but he may have a good reason …
The silly, strictly PG book is written for ages 8 and up, and may just rope in a whole new age range of Mulder and Scully shippers. We've included a few spreads to wet your whistle below.
