‘Zombies Love Brains’ – A New Undead-Themed Children’s Picture Book

21 Oct

Zombies Love Brains Front CoverZombies Love Brains is a little project I’ve been working on for almost two years. It started off as a bit of a challenge from a friend’s daughter to write a children’s book, and kind of blossomed from there. Today it’s finally on sale both in print and as a Kindle ebook, and if you’re interested, you can buy it from here.

Zombies Love¬†Brains is a salutary tale for young readers, aged three and over, which explains that becoming a zombie is no reason to be impolite to others, or take things that don’t belong to you without asking first.

Normally with my books, I’ve provide extracts of the first few chapters, but that doesn’t really work for a picture book, so instead, I’ll show you some of the pages. For me, it’s the artwork that really makes Zombies Love Brains come to life, and for that I’ve got to thank my illustrator Mike Kloran. His work is brilliant, and exactly what I was looking for, and he was very good at dealing with all my demands and changes of mind as we worked together to finally¬†get this book finished.

So, without further a-do, here’s some of Mike’s amazing artwork from Zombies Love Brains.

The book starts with the obvious statement that zombies love brains:


And from there moves on to exploring exactly how much zombies love them:


This is probably my favourite set of images from the book, and I especially loved the dog with the zombie arm in its mouth.


The granny from the above image makes a re-appearance later in the book, where she seems blissfully unaware of the zombies that are surrounding here.


Anyway, that’s Zombies Love Brains for you, and it’s out just in time for Hallowe’en. It won’t be to everyone’s liking, but for those who are into zombies (and let’s face it, many children are!), it seems to be a big hit.

From the author of For Those In Peril On The Sea, a tale of post-apocalyptic survival in a world where zombie-like infected rule the land and all the last few human survivors can do is stay on their boats and try to survive.
