Zombies, zombies, zombies
They are a big deal in teen literature this year. It's crazy how many zombie books there are right now! I wanted to share the one that grabbed me as soon as it came in the new book cart this past week: Zombie High Yearbook '64.
How can you not want to flip through this "yearbook" just based on its front cover? A traditional yearbook--sort of. Everyone just happens to be zombies! These black and white photos are filled with detail and a few blood splatters thrown in for good measure. Add in the student's comments like:
"Roses are Red
Violet are blue,
Your brains are pink,
and your sweet guts stink." You get the picture.
Obviously, this is not for everybody. It's a great book to flip through and catch how many zombie in-jokes you can find. If you're a zombie fan, you've got to see this book!
