Zombie in Love: 04/19/15
Zombie in Love by Kelly DiPucchio is a quirky picture book that will appeal to children and adults. Mortimer the zombie has tried every thing he can think of to find true love. As the cover shows, he's literally willing to give the right girl (or ghoul) his heart.
The book first goes through single panel examples of how Mortimer has tried and failed at finding love. He goes to the gym and his arms fall off, is one.
Scott Campbell's illustrations put a lot of expression into Mortimer and humor into the situations. It's always easy to tell how Mortimer is feeling and by the end, I was certainly hoping he'd find love.
Thankfully Mortimer does find his one true love.
