CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

A coloring book for kids is causing a lot of controversy for what's inside.

"We Shall Never Forget 9/11: The True Faces of Evil—Terror" is the second edition from St. Louis-based Really Big Coloring Books, featuring terrorists as the topic for your child's artistic expression.

The book introduces your children to violence with images like Osama bin Laden being assassinated and the twin towers engulfed in flames; all of which are "truthful, factual, honorable and indifferent to political correctness," the cover states.

But, if your kids are not into coloring, there's another activity for them to enjoy: terrorist trading cards. Trade your Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad for 9/11's Mohammad Atta. Collect them all!

The book also lists some other things you can do with your trading cards:

  • Line your cat's litter box.
  • Burn them.
  • Put on floor, STOMP & TWIST.
  • Use them as coasters.
  • Scrape dog poo of your shoe.
  • Sell them online.

Publisher Wayne Bell explains himself in the forward:

"People ask, why this book and why this subject? In my mind it's simple: This is good vs. evil. Recognition of terror and evil can be difficult. We know people are capable of bad deeds. We know from the inherent bad nature of a terrorist, evil unspeakable crime exists. This evil may sit next to you on an airplane as a radical Islamic Muslim or it may be an avowedAtheist in the parking lot of your local grocer on a sunny morning. Let's take look at them, laugh at them, make fun of them, name them -- shame them,recognize who they are and rid the earth of them...This is a book about ethereal world. It's about being human. There is no fantasy in this book. Tell the truth -- tell it often -- tell the children."
