Description

For anyone who loves all things zombie, The Walking Dead, or expects the zombie apocalypse, comes a parody of the children’s classic The Very Hungry Caterpillar

A very hungry zombie eats his way through a variety of his favorite foods, including clowns, astronauts, rock stars, fingers, and brains.

With vivid, playful art and amusing text, The Very Hungry Zombie will appeal to picture-book lovers of all ages. Adults will catch its slightly demented humor. Older kids who grew up on classic board books will love the fun of the parody. And because the art leans toward humor rather than truly graphic grossness, a new generation of little ones may just grow up loving a creepy zombie whose gluttony earns him a bellyache.

Beware! This equal opportunity ghoulish gourmand would just love to have you for dinner!
