"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

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.

I do have a plan. I am removing all coffee products from the house in the hopes his literary wish comes true.
Buy the book.
Not terribly sure I have anything to say about this charming-yet-nasty little volume that hasn't already been said, but by cracky, it's a bundle of fun. I'm not too sure it's going to get read to the kid any time soon (and I say this as someone with a kid who at the impressionable age of five months is already riveted by movies like <em>La Horde</em> and <em>The Call of Cthulhu</em>), because some of the (wonderful) illustrations have details that are perhaps a bit on the disturbing side for younger eyes, but as a zombie-loving adult, I found it irresistible, in the tradition of "this looks a lot like kidlit, but it really isn't" (think <em>Goodnight Keith Moon</em> here, but without riffing on an existing classic). Whether you do or do not have little ones running around, if you're a zombie fan, I can't recommend this one highly enough. ****
Fun book, my kids love it. It is their second favorite, right after "Tomatoes from Mars," and like that book, this one is not an annoying pain to read to them over and over. It is in our "bed time stories" stack now.
The seven year old hated reading like nothing else on this planet, but after an infusion of monster, zombie, garden*, and ninja books, he now reads this to the 2 year old voluntarily. Hooray! I smell the sweet zombie stench of success!
It's an easy read, but having to read the ninja books and Diary of a Wimpy Kid involuntarily gave him the courage to read this one without being forced.
The 25 year old loves the inappropriate hilarity of the subject matter, and the two year old just isn't picky. She prefers books with ducks, but it's so novel to have the 7yo read to her that she sits through it just fine, and giggles at mostly the right spots.
*the kid has a sweet garden all of his own. What, you can't like ninjas, zombies, AND gardens?
The dog remains his faithful companion, and we all wish our heroes well as they attempt to stave off a litany of zombie mutants.
This book is great, its rhymes are clean
Just don't show kids 'til they're pre-teen.
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.
After recent local events, (ie; face eating) I thought it might be time to have the old zombie chat with my seven-year-old. This is a delicate subject to bring up with such a young child without going all "Walking Dead" on him.
The rhymes are soothing, Suess-esque. The text is easy for him to read on his own, and the pictures are quite amusing. But best of all, I know that he at least my son has the beginning of an idea what to do, if I am mauled and can no longer protect him.
A must for every family.

Amazon is making me write more. No more rhyming now I mean it! Anybody want a peanut?
