The MIdwich Cuckoos by John Wyndham
John Wyndham’s science fiction/horror novel provides the basis for the equally classic movie, Village of the Damned. Man, those white-haired kids are creepy. Wyndham also wrote The Day of the Triffids, which was adapted into the b-movie of the same name. You can find a copy here.
