After thumbing through this colorful book that claims it is not for children, I bought several copies for the "kids" in my life (including some under 10). It is clever, funny, and timely, given our "hunger" for all things zombie!

Format: Hardcover
The Very Hungry Zombie resembles both the classic picture book in its look as well as the storyline and artwork inside. The book resembles a small children's board book (pages thick and durable, not paper). It is really well done being that it retains what the original story was about, a creature that eats, and eats until it is so full it needs to sleep for a long time. The book also retains the teaching of learning each day of the week, like as the caterpillar did, for example this zombie "On Tuesday he chewed through two party clowns. But they tasted kind of funny."

The illustrations by Jon Apple pay homage to Eric Carle's caterpillar ones, they use the same colours, are very basic and retain the caterpillar mouth's circle bit taken out of each page. Now Apple could have used teeth marks or a human looking bite but I think the simple holes instantly conjure up the original tale being parodied as you read this version. None of the illustrations inside a gory, scary or inappropriate for kids of any age. My favourite is actually not in the story itself but instead on the back cover of a zombie sitting on a park bench drinking his human head's insides through a straw with a packet of French fingers dripping blood instead of ketchup in his other hand. Although you can get this as a Kindle book, for me the fun of this is in its resemblance to an actual board book so having a physical picture book is the way to go in my recommendation.

This is a great parody of the very hungry caterpillar. We really enjoy the art style and the bright colors are really wonderful. None of the imagery is really terrible- it's pretty much like what you would see on any 'mad scientist' toy made for kids. Even the images of brains and eyeballs are brightly colored and very toony.

Format: Hardcover
I was immediately taken by the idea of this book[[ASIN:B008TSNPOS The Very Hungry Zombie]. The Very ]Hungry Caterpillar was my son's favourite as a child and now he is fascinated by zombies and has a rather macabre sense of humour.I took a look inside the book on Amazon.co.uk and was disappointed to read the blood moon 'shown' down on the corpse, not 'shone' down. I am a native speaker although, like many, my English is not perfect. I also make allowances for poetic license however, that is just terrible grammar, which my son would have pointed out whenever we read the book!

I bought this book for my three year old nephew after borrowing it from the public library. It is a funny addition to his "zombie" library.

I got this for my God Son's birthday because he likes to read and loves zombies. This was the perfect combination of the 2. The adults seemed to enjoy it more than kids though.
