Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Using the tone of a self-help manual, this impressively designed book offers a guide to getting the most out of the zombie lifestyle—whether you’re an undead yourself or just a fan. As the introduction points out, “Zombification is just the first step in a superfun and exciting adventure.” Indeed! The chapter headings say it all: “Roam Alone or in Packs?” “Put Your Best (Most Horrific) Face Forward.” “Décor for the Decaying.” “Lend Me a Hand: Fun with Prosthetics.” Broken down in easy-to-digest chunks, the tips leave no gravestone unturned, though some of the jokes are groaners (moaners?): for example, to battle rigor mortis, “consider taking up yoga.” More impressive, actually, is the book’s nonfiction component, which offers up well-researched lists of movies, books, music, comics, board games, video games, and events for zombie fanatics. There’s also makeup tips (use pieces of rice for maggots) and even—steel yourself—recipes. The grungy and bloody layout, which incorporates movie stills but is mostly original photography and digital collage, gives a first-rate sheen to an overall to-die-for package. Grades 7-10. --Daniel Kraus

OK it's Friday and you have been a cubical slave all week.... Now it is time to go out and get your Zombie on! But wait there are way to many books on zombie hunting and much maligning the poor zombie. So what are you to do? Well, this handy book show you hoe to integrate into a zombie hostile world. OK so you are not ready to make that full on commitment to zombiedom and are thinking zombie light? Well this book shows you how to look the part and enjoy your zombie crawl experience. But wait there's more.... A list of hit tunes and movies for the zombie fan.... All sure to add to the experience.

Seriously this is a fun book for adults too and there really is not any content to terrify the tween or teen (the lunch room at school does that!) This is a fun and funny read for anyone who enjoyed Zombieland or Shaun of the dead.

So get this book and go out and get your Zombie on!

The book is part manual for newbie zombies, part encyclopedia for zombie related lore, and part "how to" for creating that unique and gory zombie look. It's a great book to read for the Halloween season.

This is creative and funny, and I enjoyed reading it over and over again! The costume and party ideas were great and the step by step instructions given with pictures were very clear. I recommend this to anyone looking for a laugh, fun ideas, and of course zombie facts.
