Zombelina by Kristyn Crow, Molly Schaar Idle

Zombelina loves to dance. She moonwalks with mummies and boogies with bats. She spins like a specter and glides like a ghost and loves to dance for her family the most. When Zombelina enrolls in a ballet class for real girls, her dancing gives everyone the chills! But when her first recital brings on a case of stage fright, her zombie moans and ghoulish groans scare her audience away. Only her devoted family's cheers, in their special spooky way, help Zombelina dance the ballet debut of her dreams.

Introducing the most adorable zombie to ever grace the dance floor, Kristyn Crow's pitch-perfect rhyme and Molly Idle's charmingly spook-tacular illustrations will make every reader want to sway and sashay in their own zombie trance.

About the Author

KRISTYN CROW loves to use rhythm, rhyme, and repetition to make reading snappy and fun. Her first book, Cool Daddy Rat, received starred reviews and was named a "Blue Ribbon Book" for 2008 by the Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books. Other titles include Bedtime at the Swamp, The Middle-Child Blues, and the forthcoming Skeleton Cat. Kristyn enjoys visiting elementary schools, where she directs eager young readers in a "swamp rhythm symphony" using a variety of percussion instruments. Kristyn is the mother of seven wonderfully creative children, and is married to a policeman, who doubles as a mad scientist/inventor. She lives in Utah.

MOLLY IDLE is the illustrator of the forthcoming titles Tea Rex and Flamingo Dancing. She worked at DreamWorks Feature Animation Studios for five years before turning to book illustration full-time. Molly now lives in Arizona with her brilliant husband, two wonderfully mischievous sons, and two snugly cats. When not making mischief with her boys or watching old Technicolor musicals, she can be found at her desk scribbling away, with a pencil in one hand and a cup of espresso in the other.

This book is absolutely adorable! If you have little girls that like ballet and Halloween, this will be a sure fire hit. We found this book at the library and it's been a bedtime favorite ever since. The rhyme all flows perfectly and Molly Idle's illustrations are as gorgeous as ever.

My daughter loves this book! We read it together over and over. She's 4 and loves ballet, so she can't get enough. I catch her looking at the pictures and trying to read it to herself.

I thought the illustrations were cute however the rhyming didn't flow as easily as other books. I think it would be a difficult read aloud.
