ZOMBIE IN LOVE 2+1 cheekily turns new-baby stories on their heads with delightful results. The absurd backwardness of the plot -- parents fretting because their baby doesn't scream and cry -- guarantees happy giggles rather than grossed-out groans. Grown-ups who know what it's like to be zombie parents will appreciate winking references to being "dead tired" and the worried parents "racking their brains."

Illustrator Scott Campbell's watercolors soften the gore and are packed with tiny details: rotten-apple baby food, a pull toy made of brains, itty-bitty earthworms cavorting in every spread, and bookshelves filled with clever titles (Make Way for Zombies, I Want My Brain Back, and Campbell's own Hug Machine).

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.
