* ''ComicBook/{{We3}}'', by Creator/GrantMorrison, is about three talking animals trying to find their way home; the covers feature "missing pets" notices written in childlike style. Kids'll love it, right? Sure! Except for the scenes featuring the cybernetic animal soldiers literally ''tearing apart the soldiers meant to come kill them'', the part where [[spoiler: the rabbit ''explodes while hurling itself at a car'']], and all sorts of graphic violence in between. Oh, and it's being adapted into a movie directed by the guy who made ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda''.

* The characters in the ''Sandbox'' comics by Swedish artist [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joakim_Pirinen Joakim Pirinen]] are antropomorphic teddy bears, while their plots often deal with sex, drugs, violence, and disturbingly psychedelic visions.

* ''Literature/AnimalFarm'' is more or less a breakdown of UsefulNotes/JosefStalin's part in the [[RedOctober Russian Revolution]], portrayed via animals throwing a farmer out of a farm and then running it themselves. The pigs are the communists, they raise dogs as their police, and the sheep pledge their full support to everything said to them without thinking about any of it. All sorts of FridgeHorror ensues, such as the horse being sold to a glue farm while the pigs periodically read letters they claim the horse wrote to them from his retirement pasture. Fortunately, nobody really thinks of it as a book for children, although it is often taught at middle school level (13/14-year-olds can usually grasp what's going on, and if you teach it alongside the actual history of the Russian Revolution and Stalin's regime, it makes for a good introduction to the concepts of {{allegory}} and {{satire}}).

* ''Literature/WatershipDown''. The introductory animation has animals being killed, and this continues throughout the movie. At one point Bigwig is trapped by a snare around his neck and is clearly suffering. The original warren the protagonists come from is a moderately harsh dictatorship, and Efrafa (General Woundwort's warren) is much worse. There's also a lot of blood and at one point rabbits are buried alive.
--> '''Hazel:''' Don't make it ''too'' grim, Holly.
--> '''Holly:''' "Grim"? I haven't even begun.
** Despite this all it's apparently aimed at middle schoolers and is relatively common in school. Too many people [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForLittleGirls mistake it]] for toddlers and little kids because of the rabbits though.



* ''Literature/WatershipDown'' and ''Literature/ThePlagueDogs'' by Richard Adams, as noted above under film.

* ''Webcomic/SandraAndWoo'' is about a preteen girl and her talking pet raccoon. It also features strong language, jokes about erections/fetishes in general, and arcs about mature topics like drug use.

* Sherlock Fox, its as kid friendly as you would expect [[Literature/SherlockHolmes the novel-series it was based on]] to be. Towards the end of the first volume there is a case of a secret society eating flesh - now remember, the comic is set in a world of PettingZooPeople, so eating flesh there is pretty much [[ImAHumanitarian cannibalism]] and is considered as such in-universe.
