From School Library Journal
K-Gr 2—Zombelina is looking forward to show-and-tell at school. She loves to dance, as she demonstrates on the bus, and plans to share her skills with her class. Naturally being a zombie means that she has difficulty holding things together. Zombelina and her best friend, Lizzie (human) gladly welcome Morty, a new student who is rather blue (literally) to their twosome after neither Zombelina's nor his talent sharing goes particularly well. Zombelina falls apart (she is a zombie after all) but still finds the confidence to encourage Morty. After playing together at recess, Zombelina is inspired to invite everyone to a party at her house where she is finally able to share her dance prowess. The themes of inclusion and welcoming differences shines through in such a clever way that readers almost won't notice it. Zombelina delights with her confidence and acceptance of herself as well as her persistence. VERDICT This is a school story that could easily double as a Halloween selection. A first purchase wherever zombies are popular.—Heidi Grange, Summit Elementary School, Smithfield, UT
"A good match for first-day jitters. . . . Caldecott Honor-winning Idle’s art seems to glide and dance mischievously across the pages." - The New York Times
"Themes of inclusion and welcoming differences shines through . . . Zombelina delights with her confidence and acceptance of herself as well as her persistence." - School Library Journal
"This zombie may not be able to keep her body together, but she can sure keep her head in delicate situations and be a good friend." - Kirkus Reviews
"Idle’s balletic, curving lines are put to excellent use in this dance-themed story." - Publishers Weekly
"Fans of both paranormal characters and ballet will like this." - Kirkus Reviews on ZOMBELINA DANCES THE NUTCRACKER
"Zombelina is a wonderful dancer, but it’s really Idle who’s superb--few others could make running jokes about detached limbs look this graceful. Crow’s rhymes offer a similar blend of playfulness and gross-out humor." - Publishers Weekly on ZOMBELINA DANCES THE NUTCRACKER
"Spook lovers will grab the book . . . The strength of the book is the handling of overcoming stage fright." - Library Media Connection on ZOMBELINA
"Crow’s rhyming text is ready-made for reading aloud. Idle’s colored-pencil illustrations are bursting with details, facial expressions, wonderfully slightly spooky touches, and when appropriate, love. An unusually well-done mix of Halloween, dance, and family that’s sure to please many youngsters." - School Library Journal on ZOMBELINA
"If Dr. Frankenstein, Tim Burton, or Charles Addams had tried to create a picture-book protagonist, it might have been Zombelina . . . An especially funny horror story with a warm message in its unbeating heart." - Booklist on ZOMBELINA

After a good breakfast of lizard-eye gruel, Zombelina is ready for school, and this time she gets to show off her amazing dance moves in front of her class. As soon as she starts to dance and sashay, everything quickly starts to fall apart, literally, and no one clap but the new student, Morty, who is even worse of than her with stage fright. But Zombelina knows just what to do, a Dance Party with friends, where she can teach them her moves.
In this adorable, rhyming, dance along tale, children will giggle, laugh and dance along with Zombelina and her friends. No matter what obstacles lie ahead, Zombelina approaches them with all the grace of a zombie, and the confidence of a very strong girl. A perfect read for any child who loves school, or maybe is even a little shy, Zombelina is here to save the day.
