Marci | 2 comments Here are the details I can remember, I read this book as a young adult, pre-teen, so around the early 80's maybe late 70's.
I recall an orange hardcover, about notebook size.
The book has black and white illustrations, that look as if a child drew them, they are very simple.
The context had to do with a small boy who was going through psychological stages, such as Oedipus complex, and his Id.
One of the main pictures I can remember is that the little boy turned into a dragon to slay daddy to marry mommy.
So one of the pictures has dad as the dragon, with his glasses on.
The book is not thick, maybe about 20 pages.
Please help. Thank you!
