Guess who sent me this book? ANNETTE SIMON, the creator of this story o' fun, because apparently she's awesome that way. I wrote a comment on Carter's blog when she reviewed this book, it kinda looked like this : "!!!!!!!!OMG!!!!Zombies AND Robots!!!!!!"
It was a lovely and succinct comment, full of nuance and intelligence.
I was so excited for 'Robot Zombie Frankenstein' to arrive and when it did, I was not disappointed. It was even cuter and more fun than my already sky-high expectations were hoping for!
Let's just put it this way. Your preschooler is going to think this is THE GREATEST BOOK EVER. And they might learn about the fun shapes that can adorn a robot and/or a zombie, which is Very Useful Information indeed.
Because who, I ASK YOU WHO, cannot get behind two robots who are attempting to outdo each other by increasing the level of their awesome by pretending to be the mightiest master extraordinaire of ROBOT ZOMBIE FRANKENSTEIN PIRATE SUPERHERO-IN-DISGUISE OUTER SPACE INVADER-ness?????
And THAT, my lovelies, is without a doubt the finest sentence I've ever had the pleasure of writing.
This art is like, KAPOW!
FUN! Such crisp and clean graphics, nicely oversized on the page.
ROBOT ZOMBIE FRANKENSTEIN! YEAH! I could do this all day long, but I won't.
Looking for the perfect present for that special 4 or 5 year old in your life? Well here it is. Because NOTHING SAYS LOVE LIKE ZOMBIES.
(and the cherry pie at the end? pure brilliance. this is easily the coolest picture book I've seen in a long while. Miss Annette: you're a rad chick!)
