"It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Zombies: A Book of Zombie Christmas Carols" by Michael P Spradlin (Spotlight reviewed by Cindy Hannikman)



With Christmas right around the corner I thought I'd showcase a funny little book that I ran across this holiday season. It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Zombies, is a humor/parody Christmas book meant to bring a little cheer and a few laughs to that zombie fan.

Michael P. Spradlin is the author of many children's books, but most famously known for his Youngest Templar novels.

It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Zombies, showcases 15 zombie themed Christmas carols in a 96 page book. Each carol is complete with a zombie related illustration done by Jeff Weigel.

While not a book that I feel I could fully review and give pros and cons of. I believe that this is just the perfect gift for those zombie fans out there. And really wanted to share it with everyone.

There are many crazy and funny lyrics throughout this book. One of my favorite lyrics is from the song "The Zombie Christmas Song" which is set to the tune of The Christmas Song: Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire:

Fresh brains roasting on an open fire,
Zombies chewing off your nose

Other songs that I enjoyed were the Undead Christmas, A Jolly Zombie Christmas and Deck the Halls with Parts of Wally.

I should note that there is a song titled I saw Mommy Chewing Santa Claus. So while it is meant for children I wouldn't go around showing this to children that are too young.

This is just a fun book that with when taken with the right sense of humor will be something that many people can enjoy. It will be something that I pull out almost every holiday season. One of the memories that I share is having a stack of Christmas books that I pulled out every year as a child and I will happily be adding this book to that pile.
