My Rotten Friend by Stephanie Blake - NO

Blake, Stephanie J. My Rotten Friend, pictures by Mariano Epelbaum.  PICTURE BOOK.  Albert Whitman, 2015.  $ 17. 

The main character’s best friend Penelope is a bit different today.  One eye is missing, she smells a bit weird, and she wants to bite everyone in her path.  What is a best friend to do?

I am guessing that since Walking Dead is so popular that it was inevitable that zombies invade picture books????  Really??  Instead of watching Penelope eat her dad’s brains, I would have thought the girl might have been reaching for a pitchfork or something instead?  I don’t understand the appeal.

NOT RECOMMENDED.  Cindy, Library Teacher
