Uhhh I decided about two weeks ago that I wanted to make a creepypasta-themed children's book. <8; I decided Candle Cove would be my perfect victim!

Err I know this isn't really creepy, I didn't necessarily intend that.

What I really wanted was to make something that would be like, REAL merch from the show if the show actually existed.

So yeaaaaah!

Special thanks to :iconhorus-the-chorus: for looking over the text in the early stages of production.

I'm very glad this is done. Hopefully the flash buttons work!

Candle Cove is not my original story.

The text and drawings in this book are mine.

Okay, so this is probably the strangest concept I've seen on deviantART.

A children's book on a creepypasta. Okay.

Well, Let's go in order. The vision itself is so crazy, that it suprisingly works. It does indeed look like merchandise for the show. So perfect for that.

I usually give fanart 3 stars, but considering that she chose to do a children's book style, I decided to boost it up a star. Very creative XD

The technique is very much the opposite of original. While I LOVE :iconzakeno:'s style, I think she should've tried something different. This looks too digital, and not like a printed book. A texture or something of the like would've softened this blow, but alas. XD Anyway, all the coloring is also too similar. Keep in mind, everyone sans Janice is supposed to be a puppet. Percy has a porceline head, from what I've read. The only one that really works is the Skintaker, but it's only in the eyes. Speaking of, He's supposed to look at the viewer when he states his catchphrase.

Impact is perfect if you know the story, if you don't, then you'll still like the book all the same.

All-in-all, the coloring, while beautiful and well done, is not appropriate for what the piece is supposed to be. It's written like a children's book, which makes it work. While I admit there's a tad bit of bias, since this is one of my favorite creepypasta's, but I tried my best to be fair.

First off, this is amazing. The colors and art are beautiful, and I love how you made this a children's book instead of just writing it out and having concept art to go with it.

The story itself is great! You stayed mostly stayed true to the creepypasta, which is good. However, I thought the ending would be a tiny bit confusing to someone who hasn't read the creepypasta, but that doesn't mean I didn't like it. I loved it!

You should really consider getting this published or something (just as long as you give the right credit to the creater of the pasta, and get his or her permission and stuff...). I'm sure a lot of people would enjoy this.

Keep up the awesome work!

I like how you sort of kept the creepiness of the story with the static television at the end of the story

Read it all the way through and loved it. Candle Cove is one of my favourite creepypastas as it gives a sense of wanting to find out if it is real or not :)  Though on that note of my saying "giving a sense of wanting to find out if its real or not", I feel like I have heard the character name "Pirate Percy" before even though I haven't seen the show (supposedly according to the creepypasta it was real at some point in time) but anyways this is awesome and I felt a little spooked when reading it so yeah very much awesomeness :D
