“Now there’s a picture book for the youngest zombie fans. Campbell, a comics and video game artist, gives Mortimer the zombie just the right degree of repellant charm…DiPucchio…exchanges zombie horror for romantic agony; instead of fearing him, the thin-skinned will suffer right along with hapless Mortimer.”
--Publishers Weekly, June 20, 2011
“This silly story features loads of sight gags that sharp-eyed children will enjoy…chuckles are guaranteed…. This giggler will grab those children who like their zombies funny.”
--School Library Journal, August 2011
“DiPucchio and Campbell pair their considerable talents to tell the tale of poor Mortimer, a zombie looking for love in all the wrong places…. Text loaded with humorous understatement and Campbell’s skillfully detailed watercolors in a palette of decay (think watery reds, putrid grays and sickly greens) are both clever and delightfully gross…. Probably best suited for sharing with primary graders, who will squirm between fits of laughter.”
--Kirkus, August 1, 2011

The best part of this book are the illustrations. They are really cute and not gory or gross. There's just enough "kid gross" (giving a diamond ring to a girl with a finger still attached!), but the pictures are so cartoony that you don't imagine "The Walking Dead". The zombie in this story isn't yucky, but actually quite endearing. The pictures capture the emotion of this silly guy quite remarkably. So in this story, he's trying to find love and gets so bummed when none of the living girls want to hang out with him (well, because he's a zombie!), but one day he finds true zombie love after placing a very clever ad in the local paper (to the tune of "If you like Pina Coladas"). It's just silly and funny and it left a little sweet spot in my heart for this dead fella.
I can't say enough good things about this adorable book. It's entertaining, the pictures are super cute and funny and the story line is sweet. It's a must have in your kids' book collection (3 and older).
