Zombie in Love: 2 + 1 by Kelly DiPucchio -- OPTIONAL
In this followup to Zombie in Love, the happily-married zombie couple finds a baby in their yard. Unfortunately, the baby has a few quirks: for one, he sleeps during the night and is awake all day. He also grows new teeth instead of losing old ones. Worst of all, he won't eat his strained brains, rotten apples, bat pudding, or even mud. What are these zombies to do?
Maybe it's because I never got into the zombie craze, but I feel very lukewarm about this one. While the concept is cute, the illustrations are not particularly eye-catching, and the story feels a little underdeveloped. Perhaps zombie fans will be more into it.
