Peanut Butter & Brains A Zombie Culinary Tale

Written by Joe McGee

Illustrated by Charles Santoso

Peanut Butter & Brains A Zombie Culinary Tale Synopsis

Reginald is not like the other zombies in Quirkville who are constantly groaning and moaning for brains. The only food that Reginald can think about is a sweet and sticky peanut butter and jelly sandwich. But as Reginald travels through Quirkville, no one wants to serve a zombie. It's not until he spots a jelly-stained lunch bag in the hands of Abigail Zink, the smartest girl in Quirkville, that he thinks he might have a chance to satisfy his craving at last. Unfortunately, the zombie horde has also spotted Abigail, and they're interested in more than her sandwich. With some quick thinking, Reginald finds a solution that not only saves the townspeople, but finally convinces the zombie horde that there's more to life than just eating brains!

Peanut Butter & Brains A Zombie Culinary Tale Press Reviews

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