Happy Birthday, Mortimer!


On Sale Today!

"Now there's a picture book for the youngest zombie fans. Campbell, a comics and video game artist, gives Mortimer the zombie just the right degree of repellant charm…DiPucchio…exchanges zombie horror for romantic agony; instead of fearing him, the thin-skinned will suffer right along with hapless Mortimer."
-- Publishers Weekly, June 20, 2011

"This silly story features loads of sight gags that sharp-eyed children will enjoy…chuckles are guaranteed…. This giggler will grab those children who like their zombies funny."
-- School Library Journal, August 2011

"DiPucchio and Campbell pair their considerable talents to tell the tale of poor Mortimer, a zombie looking for love in all the wrong places…. Text loaded with humorous understatement and Campbell's skillfully detailed watercolors in a palette of decay (think watery reds, putrid grays and sickly greens) are both clever and delightfully gross…. Probably best suited for sharing with primary graders, who will squirm between fits of laughter."
-- Kirkus, August 1, 2011
