Zombies!! The Stinking Dead
This kids’ book has been a long time in the making and it’s finally here. This is the story of Giler and Saru, a cat and monkey team and their unlikely run-in with some of the stinkiest zombies on the planet.
One Halloween night while reading spooky stories, Giler and Saru hear a strange noise. Saru is sure it must be zombies, but Giler’s never even heard of them before. He quickly gets a crash course in what zombies are and how to be prepared in case they attack.
Best read in a funny voice this e-book is filled with loads of gross, stinky monsters and two good friends willing to do anything to make it to the dawn.
If you’ve already looked around this blog you know how much I love Halloween and the undead. This book is a BIT of a break from my usual illustrations in that I toned down some of the splattery guts and gore to focus a bit more on the fun sloppy gross-out that kids would like. As a new parent, making the book I always asked myself if it was something I would want my son to read and thought a great deal about how I would read it with him. Fortunately he’s only a baby so I have a bit of time before he understands what sort of monsters zombies really are. But I can’t wait till the day when we can read it together, in a goofy voice, with silly scary noises ploping and bloping and blatting all throughout the story.
The Boys do everything they can to protect the house from invasion. But can they do it in time?
Or will they be food for the undead?
