Besides angels popping up in otherworldly books, zombies seem to be crawling out of graves all over our books, movies, tvs and even clothing. I have been telling my 7th graders that zombies are becoming the new vampire. I prove this point by showing them everything zombie I’ve been seeing. If you doubt this, let me show you some of the zombie items out there.
When searching Amazon for zombies this is what comes up:
900+ Toys and Games
1200+ Clothes and Accessories
Never Slow Dance With a Zombie by E. Van Lowe
The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan
You Are So Undead to Me by Stacey Jay
Zombies for Zombies: Advice and Etiquette for the Living Dead by David P. Murphey
And my favorite:
It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Zombies by Michael P. Spradlin. This book takes 12 Christmas songs and rewrites them zombie style!
