Mommy, Daddy, and a new baby makes three! A heartwarming—and hair-raising—tale of undead parenting from the bestselling author and illustrator of Zombie in Love, which Kirkus Reviews called “clever and delightfully gross.”
Happily married zombie couple Mortimer and Mildred are thrilled to be new parents. But having a baby isn’t what they expected. Sonny hardly ever cries. His teeth are coming in instead of falling out. And worst of all, he’s awake all day and sleeps through the night.
Mortimer and Mildred are dead tired, and very worried. Will their precious baby boy ever behave like a good little monster?
New York Times bestselling author Kelly DiPucchio and illustrator Scott Campbell team up once again to bring their lovable zombies the family they always wanted.
Kelly DiPucchio is the award-winning and New York Times bestselling author of Grace for President and numerous other books for kids, including Super Manny Stands Up!; Crafty Chloe, Zombie in Love, Gaston, and Antoinette. She lives with her husband and three children in Michigan. You can find out more about Kelly and her books at KellyDiPucchio.com.
“Campbell's watercolor illustrations show gray-green scenes full of comic and faux-gory touches….Share with a slightly older audience who will fully appreciate the silly yet wonderfully gross details.”
– Kirkus Reviews, October 1, 2014
