"Oh, the Lightning You'll Throw!"  (Parody of "Oh, the Places You'll Go!")

Book cover features a smiling boy (as young Zeus) in loose, windblown white tunic standing on top of a high, colorful pinnacle with a lightning bolt poised to throw.  A second bolt has just struck a Grecian building (rendered in a whimsical, fantastical Dr. Seuss style.)  Yet another bolt has struck the ground, wreaking havoc and pandemonium, narrowly missing and upsetting a group of  Seussian book characters (for example, Sam running away with a platter of eggs and ham, the Fox in Socks, Thing 1 and Thing 2, a Sneetch, etc..)

(Added note: I propose modeling the boy/young Zeus after National Spittoon.)

"By Dr. Zeus"

"A Mighty 'Coming of Age' Book"

I like it! My parents gave me this book when I graduated high school.

Here's a quick cut-n-paste mock up I made of your idea.

Very cool, Jean Nutty!  I like it!  (The cloud is also a nice touch!  Perhaps one could be wreathing the pinnacle?  Give it more of a high-in-the-heavens, Olympian kind of feel?)

Speaking of parents.  Have to dart over to mine.  Will return later...

"Grubber" Lil' Mealworms  (Parody of "Gerber" Lil' Meals.)

Package features a spoonful and bowl of mealworms (in sauce) crawling and wriggling all over the place.  The Gerber baby (upper center) is wide-eyed and dumbfounded (or howling and crying) as a meal worm hangs out of her open mouth.

"Easy to Go Down!" / "Easier to Come Back Up!" - or - "Easy to Digest! / "Easier to Disgust!"

"Helps Lil' Toddlers Make Lil' Poopa!"

"Marie Constrictor's Southern Python Pie"  (Parody of Marie Callender's Southern Pecan Pie.")

Box features full pie (as opposed to a slice of pie in the foreground.)  Coiled inside the pie dish is a python with malevolent eyes.  Just outside of the pie dish is a small kitten on the tabletop with its head slightly tilted in curiosity.  One front paw is timidly raised to inspect the contents of the pie dish.

Instead of a grandmother smiling down at her granddaughter in the logo, a python is wrapped around the child.  It's head is raised and, like the grandmom, also smiling down upon the girl.  A few clumps of Spanish moss are draped from the letters of "Marie Constrictor's."
