If you’re looking for a new way to improve classic works of literature, then the internet is here to help – all you need to do is add “and then the murders began” as the second sentence.

The idea, by sci-fi/horror writer Marc Laidlaw, caught on, with the hashtag #LaidlawsRule. Here are some classic book made murdery.

The Very Hungry Caterpillar, by Eric Carle

Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, by J.K. Rowling

Winnie-the-Pooh, by A.A. Milne

A Tale of Two Cities, by Charles Dickens

Charlotte’s Web, by E. B. White

The Cat in the Hat, by Dr. Seuss

Mrs. Dalloway, by Virginia Woolf

Aside from literature, it also works great with cookery books.
