I'm thrilled to announce that a new book for Penguin I've illustrated, Zombiekins, has shambled to the bookshelves! It's been over year in the works and I'm very happy how it turned out. The zombie book for kids is hilariously written by Kevin Bolger, whom I worked with previously on Sir Fartsalot vs The Dragon cartoon.
You can check out book excerpt, news and more at at www.zombiekins.com.
The little town of Dementedyville is as boring as they come--but a mysterious stuffed animal is about to liven things up . . . Stanley Nudelman buys Zombiekins at the yard sale of his neighbor, the Widow Imavitch. It looks cuddly and creepy-cute--but expose the TEDDY OF TERROR to moonlight, and strange things happen. . . . When Zombiekins gets loose at his school, Stanley finds himself in GRAVE danger. Because if his teacher Mr. Baldengrumpy discovers he turned the whole school into zombies, Stanley will be in detention till he's, like, 80! Can Stanley and his best friend Miranda save their schoolmates from eternal zombiefication? If not, will Mr. Baldengrumpy even notice?
A few early reviews for Zombiekins-
“A contemporary riff on Dahl, but perhaps even funnier”
- Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
“A very lively zombie tale that will no doubt be gobbled up by readers”
- Quill and Quire
