I heard some really creepy sounds coming from my office closet yesterday. It sounded like a zombie was in there. I opened the door and found my 7-year-old daughter with a copy of How to Speak Zombie: A Guide for the Living.
Written by Steve Mockus, my friend and editor at Chronicle Books, the book has battery-powered sound module with ten different zombie phrases to help you learn how to speak the language of the undead who walk among us. (Judging from the phrases on the sound module, a talking zombie sounds a like an angry Scooby Doo on quaaludes.)
Travis Millard's comically gruesome illustrations and Steve's funny writing have earned this book a top spot in our house.
