Tiddles is a suave, carefree kitty cat whose only pleasures in life are eating mice, wooing the ladies, and being generally apathetic toward his owner, Jake. But when a toxic spill occurs outside of town, Tiddles finds himself savagely attacked by a nasty-looking radioactive field mouse, and he wakes up as one of the undead.
However, he still retains a bit of compassion and refrainsâ€”for nowâ€”from zombie Bacchanalian delights, such as eating living beingsâ€™ brains! Umm . . . any brains at all!
However, Tiddles, a.k.a. Zombie Cat, is decomposing rapidly and would prefer to live a normal life in the zombie apocalypse with his owner, Jake. But will Jake take in his former cuddly pet or will ZC be doomed to roam the streets trying to avoid the inevitable pull of his undead yearnings? Zombie Cat is a humorous adult picture book in the vein of Pat the Zombie and Ten Little Zombies: A Love Story.
Isabel Athertonâ€™s quirky storytelling combined with Bethany Strakerâ€™s captivating (and slightly grotesque!) illustrations make this the perfect addition to any Halloween collection. Itâ€™s the ideal gift for any crazed zombie fanaticâ€”or equally crazed cat lover. 14 color illustrations
