Zombie in Love 2+1
by Kelly DiPucchio
Illustratrated by Scott Campbell

Mortimer and Mildred (the zombie couple from Zombie in Lovehave gotten married and pink healthy baby has joined their happy home.  Pink and healthy?  Sonny isn’t a zombie baby.  He’s just a regular baby and Mom and Dad aren’t at all sure how to handle him.  His teeth are coming in vs falling out.  He almost never cries.  And, worst of all, he’s awake all day!

Like many concerned parents, Mortimer and Mildred take him to the doctor.  He examines the pink, healthy baby and pronounces him – normal!  “I’d say you two are very lucky parents!”  Finally Mortimer and Mildred can relax and just enjoy their time with Sonny.

If you aren’t familiar with Zombie in Love, be warned.  This is true zombie humor. It is gross.  It is off color.  And it is 100% funny.  My favorite part?  When Mildred says that Sonny has Mortimer’s nose, she doesn’t mean that their baby resembles Mortimer.  Nope.  Mortimer’s nose is literally in the tot’s hand.

Scott Campbell’s illustrations add delightful details to this story.  The text reads that they are taking Sonny to the doctor.  The illustration includes the doctor’s name – Dr. Frank N. Stein, M.D.   The doctor’s assistant is in the background and looks more like Mortimer and Mildred than Sonny does.

No, I wouldn’t pick this book for fans of Fancy Nancy but my son loved zombies even when he was little. This book would have been perfect for him.  And if you have someone who loves zombie and all things gross and this person is about to become a parent?  Really.  They need this book.  They’ll enjoy the gruesome details and having a set of marvelous parents they can study for top notch parenting techniques.
