A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this book.
Mortimer places an ad in the newspaper. Kids can learn that there is another place people advertise besides the Internet.
Although he is lonely, Mortimer does his best to stay hopeful and keep reaching out to others. His patience and persistence pay off in the end.
Positive Role Models
Our zombie hero is nice and keeps trying to connect with girls, but unfortunately the human ones are scared of him. Still, he never gives up. He even tries to get in shape by working out at the gym, but his arm falls off when he lifts weights.
Violence & Scariness
No active violence, but severed body parts and exposed brains allude to possible violence having occurred at some point offstage.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this sweet, silly zombie love story has gruesome elements suited to the subject matter: worms, severed limbs, a detached heart, a severed finger, a plate of eyeballs, a keyboard made of finger bones, and a picnic in a graveyard with brain as the entree.
Is It Any Good?
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
