Title: It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Zombies! A Book of Zombie Christmas Carols
Author: Michael P. Spradlin
Publisher: Harper Collins
Yes, Christmas is on its way – and all the little boys and ghouls are dreaming of stockings filled with candied eyes and bleeding body parts. You’d better watch out! Santa Claws is coming to town – and he knows who’s been naughty, who’s been naughtier… and who will taste best with a nice glass of Chianti!
It’s Christmas, and what better expresses the spirit of the holiday than hordes of the living dead? As Christopher Moore notes in the introduction to this book, “there are very few literary pursuits which cannot be improved by the addition of Zombies.” Michael Spradlin and illustrator Jeff Weigel prove this in It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Zombies! A Book of Zombie Christmas Carols, a humorous little twist to the traditional holiday fare that would scare the sheet off the Ghost of Christmas Future. From I Saw Mommy Chewing Santa Claus to A Jolly Zombie Christmas, all your favorites are brought back from the dead with plenty of guts and gore, including my favorite, and the signature song of the book (sung to the tune of It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas):
It’s beginning to look a lot like Zombies
Everywhere you go.
They’ve stormed the Grand Hotel, and filled the park as well.
They’re hungry and they sure don’t mind the snow!
It’s beginning to look a lot like Zombies!
Blood splattered on the floor!
But the scariest sight to see is the Zombies that will be
At your own front door.
So grab yourself several copies of this book, gather your best friends (or fiends), and go zombie caroling. You’ll be spreading some old-fashioned holiday cheer along with a good ole rotter outbreak.
It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Zombies! is good Christmas fun and makes an excellent stocking stuffer. I give this book four out of five rotting zombie heads (each wearing a Santa’s cap).
