Okay I will start by saying it is adorable. My child has started seeing things on TV, commercials for shows like Izombie or Dawn of the Dead and such. We do not let him watch the shows but you cannot stop the media and he always asks a million questions. This was a cute and age appropriate way to help answer them. Being 4 they are not let go until answered. His reaction to the first reading was intense concentration. He absorbed every word and I even heard him repeat some of the rhymes (rhymes are great kids love them). After he took the book and started finding all the animals hidden in it while reading it to himself over and over. He loves it. As an adult I likely cannot appreciate it in the same way a child can but it had him engaged which is wonderful and I was not bored reading it (which lets face it is hard to do when reading books for little kids) so overall I rate this an amazing success!
Bartholomew Buggins: A Zombie with Different Cravings is a delightful children’s book that will leave your children wanting more! Bartholomew is a zombie; a young, fun and quiet zombie who demonstrates the skills and focused attention that parents encourage in their children. He studies, he plays, he’s quiet, friendly and non-threatening.
The prose is smooth, easy to follow, rhymes cleverly – not forced. The rhythm of the rhyming flows easily. Crystal Marcos has laid the story out in a clever manner, making the story relatable and genuine. Given today’s interest in zombies and the walking dead, Ms. Marcos has created a character that small children (and their parents) will love and never fear! It also teaches them good behavior (no rowdiness or bad manners), being studious, everyone is different and being kind. All attributes we want to see in our children.
In a team effort, Marie Marcos has illustrated the story of Bartholomew Buggins with cute and attractive artwork with hidden “eggs” throughout the story. Marie’s artwork brings the story to life making the team work of both Crystal and Marie Marcos a brilliant collaboration accomplishment.
Over the weekend, I read the story of Bartholomew Buggins to two of my small grandchildren – a granddaughter who is two and her brother who is four. They sat and listened to the story and looked at the artwork – combining the vivid imagery with smooth rhyme and they were bewitched! They kept touching the pages fascinated with the artwork. The children kept returning to the book, wanting to hear and see it again and again.
This book is a piece of magic! Any book that can take two overly active children and hold their attention for any period of time is impressive. I personally found the rhyme charming and fun. The artwork was also stunning. The combination of the two created an outstanding piece of reading and visual pleasure.
WordsAPlenty gives this book a well-deserved five-star rating for its combined effectiveness as well as its whimsical verse and amazing artwork.
Its also is fun to find the cartoon brains. This book would book would also make a good theme for a not so scary zombie party.
