Praise For…

"Santoso’s ink-and-watercolor drawings..strike a successful silly-scary balance...Striking a reportorial tone, newcomer McGee gets substantial comic mileage out of repeating the word 'brains'—or 'brainsssss,' as it’s evocatively spelled at several points."
— Publishers Weekly

"Run, don't shamble, to get this original zombie tale."
— Kirkus Reviews

"The illustrations’ rounded shapes and pastel watercolor washes portray zombies who are more cute than scary, and full of personality. Signs and balloons with images of brains inside cleverly communicate the zombies’ food preferences in a nonverbal way."
— The Horn Book Magazine
