The Midwich Cuckoos is a 1957 science fiction novel by John Wyndham.
All the women in the village of Midwich simultaneously become pregnant with alien children who all share the same uncanny appearance and have the ability to mentally manipulate people.
It has been filmed twice under the title Village of the Damned.
This novel provides examples of:
- Bizarre Baby Boom
- Creepy Child
- Eyes of Gold
- The Ishmael: The narrator, Richard Gayford, is a fairly uninspiring and relatively uninvolved observer. If the book can be said to have a protagonist, it would have to be Zellaby.
