Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

When they find a live infant on their doorstep, Mortimer and Mildred are delighted at the surprise addition to their happy zombie family. Before long though, they realize that Sonny is not your average undead toddler: He sleeps at the wrong times; hardly ever cries; and doesn't seem to be developing into a hungry little monster. Fortunately, their fears are extinguished by his first giant screaming bout. With Scott Campbell's comically eerie watercolors and Kelly DiPucchio's "clever and delightfully gross" story, Zombie in Love 2+1 will warm the heart of every living thing that still have has one.

Publishers Weekly
11/03/2014
Zombie lovers Mortimer and Mildred, last seen in Zombie in Love, have “a little problem” in the form of the baby left on their doorstep. They happily take Sonny in, but “His teeth were coming in instead of falling out,” he sleeps soundly through the night, and his skin is quite pink compared to their blue-green pallor. A trip to the doctor puts their fears to rest, and before long they are playing “got your nose” in the way only a zombie family can. DiPucchio and Campbell are in ghoulishly comic sync, with plenty of punning and visual gags (brains appear as everything from hobby-horse heads to table lamps) to keep kids cackling. Ages 4–8. Agent: Steven Malk, Writers House. (Jan.)

"Best-seller DiPucchio has struck up a winning concept, one that should keep galvanizing new readerships"
Kirkus Reviews
2014-09-14
Zombie couple Mildred and Mortimer find a live baby on their doorstep. Although happy to be parents, taking care of a new baby often scares them to death. DiPucchio uses a deadpan tone to recount the couple's stressful transition into parenthood. "Having a baby wasn't what they expected. / Sonny was a fussy eater. His teeth were coming in instead of falling out." The young boy keeps them up all day while sleeping through the night. No matter what they do, the baby seems happy—which completely troubles them. Campbell's watercolor illustrations show gray-green scenes full of comic and faux-gory touches. Small, friendly worms cavort around the smiling baby, who plays with a train made of brains. Fretful that the baby is not well—he hardly ever cries!—Mildred and Mortimer take Sonny to a doctor, who pronounces the baby to be quite healthy. Finally, a growing Sonny tries to liberate himself from his crib and falls out. He erupts into tears and wails. His parents' reaction? " ‘Do you hear that, dear?' Mortimer asked, beaming with pride. ‘It's positively terrifying!' " Soon they are all smiling…and the final close-up shows all three with wide, gap-toothed grins. Rare is the entertaining story that has equal appeal at Valentine's Day and Halloween. Share with a slightly older audience who will fully appreciate the silly yet wonderfully gross details.
