I finally found a picture book suitable for the impressionable young minds of my children: The Very Hungry Zombie.
It’s practically identical to the original Eric Carle version, both in illustration and style. “On Wednesday he gnawed on three football players. But he found them tough and gritty.” (Yeah, that’s an actual excerpt…no word on if the zombie gets a tummy ache at the end of his feeding frenzy.)
So now my children can learn how to count as well as learn about the unceasing menace of the undead. Two
zombies with one headshot birds with one stone!
