Hiroshima No Pika
OK, so the messed up-ness of this one is pretty obvious, but it’s worth including anyway. This is a kids’ book about the atom bombs that killed millions in Hiroshima, told from the perspective of a woman who carried her husband and children away from the bomb blast. Oh, and it’s got lots of pretty realistic illustrations — the cover is a naked woman running through a sea of blood. Enough said.
