5.0 out of 5 stars Adorkable! 10 Oct 2011
By Madigan McGillicuddy - Published on Amazon.com
What's a lovelorn zombie to do? Mortimer tries all his best romantic moves on the ladies, gifting them with a maggoty box of chocolates, a shiny red (still beating?) heart, even a diamond ring (unfortunately, with decomposing finger still attached) all to no avail. Desperate, he finally puts out a personal ad, (to the tune of Escape, The Pina Colada Song) "If you like taking walks in the graveyard/and falling down in the rain. If you're not into cooking,/if you have half a brain./If you like waking up at midnight,/horror films, and voodoo,/then I'm the guy who you've looked for/and I'm dying to meet you!" Attending Cupid's Ball in hopes of scoring a date, he gives each of the attractive young ladies who approaches him a smile, "like this" (a close-up picture of Mortimer's gaping snaggle-toothed smile is featured.) Just as he's nearly about to give up, he finally meets the girl of his dreams - a zombie named Mildred.

Soft watercolor illustrations in a slightly muted palette of colors give what could be a genuinely scary or gross story an undeniably cute charm. The illustrations are chock-full of little details, like Mortimer's coffee cup emblazoned with the slogan, "I (brain) Brains" or his computer mouse that is actually a mouse. Mortimer's zombie dog manages to make a dangling eyeball and exposed ribcage seem adorable. Best of all, are Mortimer's constant companions, and first-rate wingmen, a family of busy worms that follow him wherever he goes. I also enjoyed the "brain cake" the Mortimer dishes up on his picnic date with Mildred. I guess it's easy to draw the conclusion that if you're unlucky in love, the surest way to happiness is to lower your standards. Or maybe the moral is, there's someone for everyone.

As a librarian, I love that this story will be equally appropriate for Halloween and Valentine's Day. Yay! Two holidays for the price of one! I'll recommend this to anyone who enjoyed the macabre and funny mash-up of holidays of Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas and to first and second-graders with a sense of humor.

5.0 out of 5 stars I LOVE Zombie in Love! 22 Nov 2011
By D. Gephart - Published on Amazon.com
Zombie in Love combines my favorite things -- humor, fun horror, a great story and terrific artwork.

Scott Campbell's illustrations are fabulous. My favorite is the one that follows these words: "Each time a girl approached the table, Mortimer would smile. Like this:" (It's a hilarious closeup of Mortimer's face.) Campbell's illustrations add much humor to the already fun, funny and poignant text.

I became familiar with Kelly DiPucchio's books when I discovered Grace for President, and I've been a huge fan ever since. Zombie in Love is my new favorite!

This book would make a great gift not only for kids, but for adults on Halloween or Valentine's Day or . . . any day.

Treat yourself to Zombie in Love. It's truly a picture book to dismember, um, remember.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top book in our home 15 Jan 2013
By ZumaLun - Published on Amazon.com
No lie, my kids have well over 100 books and I'd say this is the number one most requested book for me to read to them. It's totally fun and so cute. I also read it to my son's 1st grade class and they we're all engrossed and laughing. A lot of what is so engaging are the illustrations. They are full of funny details that just really captures you. Excellent book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Fun. Great Illustrations and Story 6 Oct 2013
By Evildonald - Published on Amazon.com
I've been reading this to my little girl since she was 1. She loves the illustrations and especially the two "smile like this" pages. Now she's 2 and a half she still loves having it read to her.

Also there are a lot if "jokes for mum and dad" hidden through the pages, that makes sure your child isn't the only one having fun.

Cannot recommend enough!

We also like "Grace for President" by the same author.
