Editorial Reviews

Review

"Younger kids might be a little frightened by the idea of a formerly loving mother who now wants to dine on human flesh, but older kids and grown ups will get a kick out of this tale." --GeekDad, Wired.com

"It's like Dr. Seuss meets Night of the Living Dead.  Which to me is a perfect childhood!" --As It Happens, CBC Radio

"The double page spread that pays winking tribute to the most famous zombie film characters is worth the cover price alone." --Horror World

"That's Not Your Mommy Anymore is a beautifully illustrated and fun to read book which helps kids spot the early warning signs of zombiism." --SuicideGirls.com

"Chronicling the zombie apocalypse through a Seuss-esque filter, the colorful book serves as both a valuable narrative for adults and cleverly disguised survival guide for children." --Geekscape.net

From the Back Cover

When Matt Mogk was a little kid he suspected his mom might be a zombie.  Turns out she wasn't, but that experience led him to start the Zombie Research Society, and become a leading global authority on all things undead.

Through his work Matt knows that there will be tens of millions of zombie moms in the coming pandemic, and so he's dedicated his life and this little book to helping people of all ages better prepare for the day their moms try to eat them.

Fun book, my kids love it.

I have to say, it's a recommended book for any fan of the zombie "culture".

The illustrations are great as well.

Considering the CDC's latest promotion to be ready for the Zombie Apocalypse, well this book would help the little ones clue in when Mommy might not be Mommy anymore (that's not your Mommy in the rain, that's not your Mommy eating brains...).

Seriously though, my 8 year old was howling with laughter and so was I! Though it reads like a Dr. Seuss I would not read it to a 4-6 year old..but 7 and up (depending on the individual child of course) this is fun. Parents should use their own discretion of course. Even if it's too much for a particular little one now, older children and the parents can snicker over it on their own.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Suppose you're a seven or eight-year old. You've been hearing a lot about zombies - on TV, on the Internet, and on the school playground. You've even heard the word "apocalypse". What does it all mean? How will you know if you should be worried about it? How will you know when it happens, and if it happens, what will you do? Children have so many questions, and answers are hard to find. Well, all you have to do is pick up the book, That's Not Your Mommy Anymore, and your questions will be answered. Matt Mogk, a founder of the Zombie Research Society, has created a wonderful book for youngsters to help with their questions, and I was lucky enough to receive an advance manuscript to review.

The book takes us into the life of a young boy who is happily enjoying his life, eating Mom's pies, singing with mom, playing with his dog - all the things that young boys should be doing. The story moves on to educate the young boy about noticing a change and how to identify strange behavior by his mother. The boy learns that at some point it may be time to skedaddle out of his home, and he learns how to identify when that time has come. Four or five good examples are shown of what to look for - biting, shambling, and my favorite:

"When her voice sounds just like Daddy's snore, that's not your Mommy anymore."

The boy continues to learn - what to pack, where to go, and what the outside world will look like during the zombie apocalypse. I don't want to spoil the ending for you, but I think you'll be satisfied by it. Mogk has written the book in what I think is an anapestic poetic meter, varying between a trimeter and tetrameter metric. What I'm trying to say is that the book is written in a whimsical, Dr.

Ok I don't have kids but I had to at least give this a serious look through. I have to say, it's a recommended book for any fan of the zombie "culture". While the story is cute (and carries a great message!!), the illustrations are what bring it to life. It is well drawn out and vibrant. Oh, and the cameos? Very well played!

This is one of those books where it's best to say "know your kid" before buying it for them. Otherwise I'd say it's worth leaving on the coffee table for your friends to enjoy when they come over.

I bought this book for my brother's birthday as he is something of a zombie 'enthusiast' and I thought he might appreciate something unique related to his favorite subject. Everyone at the party was howling over this book! It is hilarious! Basically it starts off like a regular children's book and then suddenly this kid's mom starts to turn into a zombie. The poetry is well-written and makes this a fun book to read aloud. My brother loved this book so much he is buying copies for all his 'zombie friends'. Overall I am very glad I bought this book - fun at parties and a huge hit!

We got this book because we all like the zombie culture and we it seemed like it would be a fun way to tie it in with our kids. We were right. My ten year old was laughing at the writing and the pictures. My two year old liked the rythm of the story, but did get a little nervous with some of the pictures. I highly recommend this if you are looking for an entertaining horror/comedy book for the whole family.

If you are a big fan of Zombie movies and a parent or parent to be, this is a great book for Dad or Mom.

My husband and I love horror movies, and this being our first Father's day I wanted to get him something suited for it. The book is a well written spoof of a childrens book, the art work is clever and a bit gory. All what a fan of all things zombie needs.

I love this book! This is the "alternative" coffee table book. No antique cars, no Greek ruins, just a simple how-to for staying alive when the pandemic arrives! I took this into work and everyone just howled. The illustrations are wonderful, bright and dark and bloody. And I promise you - you will be entertained.

As a fan of the horror genre, reading this book was a delight. It certainly brought out the kid in me and would be something that I would've enjoyed if I was much younger. It's fun, a light read, and very entertaining. Looking forward to the next zombie tale in this series!
