Have an interest in zombies? Like cats? Have a thing for quirky, off-beat books?
You’ll like Zombie Cat then.
The recently released adult picture book, Zombie Cat: The Tale of a Decomposing Kitty (by Isabel Atherton), is about Tiddles, a suave, carefree cat who enjoys eating mice, wooing the female felines, and (like most cats) being generally disinterested in his owner. A toxic spill changes everything, and Tiddles is attacked by a radioactive field mouse…turning Tiddles into one of the undead.
Zombie Cat is definitely “different,” to say the least. It’s amusing, entertaining, and light-hearted. Every other page features wickedly wonderful illustrations (courtesy of Bethany Straker) of zombies (and zombie cats) as well as Tiddles’ experiences as one of the undead. Zombie Cat would be a great gift for those who are into cats and/or zombies. It also works as a fun coffee table book, one that will surely be a conversation piece.
Author Isabel Atherton also wrote The Bad Easter Bunny — also an illustrated adult humor book — and Smelly Ghost, a children’s picture book that will be published in 2013.
The 32-page Zombie Cat: The Tale of a Decomposing Kitty was released in October and retails for $12.95.
