31 Days of Zombie Infestation: Day 10 - Pat the Zombie

Front Cover
Pat the Zombie
Zombies invade everything. If not in the real world than certainly in the realm of pop culture. It just seems so easy to apply a zombie template to anything in the world. I'm sure a quick Google search for "zombie Strawberry Shortcake" would turn up some spectacular results. Let's see... yep. Here you go:

Zombie Strawberry Shortcake

So, anyway, that's all a lead up to Pat the Zombie, a spoof of Pat the Bunny. I don't think I can say it better than the publisher so let me just pull exactly what they say about the book:

"In the hemorrhagic vein of other zombie parodies,Pat the Zombie presents trusting toddler Judy playing peek-a-boo with a putrefying Paul. Grownup fans of Pat the Bunny (seven million of them) will find their favorite touch-and-feel features disturbingly re-created: Judy reaches for Zombie’s decaying jaw instead of daddy’s cheek; Paul caresses Mummy’s empty eye socket instead of her wedding ring. Ximm’s twisted wit, Soofi’s sick artistic sensibility, and clever packaging that mimics the original book will bring the undead lurchingly to life in this camp popculture romp."

Sounds like fun to me!
