Dorothy Kunhardt's 1940 book, Pat the Bunny, is likely one of the first books bought and read to babies. I had my own bedraggled Pat the Bunny book when I was little (that fake fur got really nasty over time). And with my own little ones, I remember guiding tiny hands to touch the soft fuzzy bunny. That's why I knew I had to get this ridiculous book for my now-19 year old son. You know...special memories.

This book, Pat the Zombie, is an obvious parody of that popular book for babies -- and not just as it relates to the book's title. Nope, it even includes the little girl and boy, Judy and Paul, from that original book. But in this new creepy rendition, Judy doesn't just pat the bunny. On the usual page-spread with the fuzzy bunny, the words say, "Judy can gut the zombie. Now YOU can gut the zombie" (and the gory, gutted zombie is the fuzzy bunny). Another example is based on the page from the baby book where Paul (and YOU) can put fingers through Mommy's ring. Well, in this new book, the words are, "Paul can put his finger through Mummy's skull. Now YOU can put your finger through Mummy's skull." And, yes, you can. There are also putrefying faces to feel.

The quality of this book isn't that great, but that's not really why I bought it. It's gory, disgusting, and sick...and, therefore, the perfect silly gift for any fellow zombie enthusiasts who also grew up with this beloved baby book. This version is most definitely NOT for babies.

I love the book, just the quality of the materials was pretty disappointing. It was about the same quality as card stock. Book overall was very cute and a good throw back to my childhood with a zombie twist.

This is a great spoof. Just watch out for the page with the scratch-n-sniff guts. I didn't even scratch it and the smell made me just about hurl.

Older kids will probably get a kick out of this book, especially if they have toddler/pre-school siblings who have the original. (I'm debating showing to my 7yo who happens to love all things Zombies and has a 4yo sister). Just don't accidentally swap the two books at story time, or CPS will be knocking at your door.

Did I mention the scratch-n-sniff guts smell horrible?

This is a cute little spoof of the old "Pat the Bunny" children's book. The spoof is intended for adults.

It is a short book, pages and story wise.

There are little sight and tough gags throughout allowing reminiscing and play.

Overall, a fun read/spoof!

I love this book but can never show it to my kid, EVer!
If you have read the original and have a sense of humor and pulse, you will like this novelty.

This is especially great for a gift, to a zombie lover, or just anyone who has read the original book, Pat the Bunny. I bought this as a present and actually decided to keep it for myself as a coffee table book - always gets a laugh, or "Eww!" Very entertaining.

Didn't give it 5 stars only because I think spending more than $5 on a "fun" gift that will probably not be "touched" again is expensive. It did get a lot of attention at gift opening time.

Got this as a present for my grown daughter who a) likes zombie stuff and b) liked Pat the Bunny as a child. This book provided many laughs.
