Description

Mortimer is looking for love. And he's looking everywhere! He's worked out at the gym (if only his arm wouldn't keep falling off). He's tried ballroom dancing lessons (but the ladies found him to be a bit stiff). He's even been on stalemate.com. How's a guy supposed to find a ghoul? When it seems all hope has died, could the girl of Mortimer's dreams be just one horrifying shriek away?

Review quote

"DiPucchio and Campbell pair their considerable talents to tell the tale of poor Mortimer, a zombie looking for love in all the wrong places.... Text loaded with humorous understatement and Campbell's skillfully detailed watercolors in a palette of decay (think watery reds, putrid grays and sickly greens) are both clever and delightfully gross.... Probably best suited for sharing with primary graders, who will squirm between fits of laughter."

--Kirkus, August 1, 2011 "This silly story features loads of sight gags that sharp-eyed children will enjoy...chuckles are guaranteed.... This giggler will grab those children who like their zombies funny."

--School Library Journal, August 2011 "Now there's a picture book for the youngest zombie fans. Campbell, a comics and video game artist, gives Mortimer the zombie just the right degree of repellant charm...DiPucchio...exchanges zombie horror for romantic agony; instead of fearing him, the thin-skinned will suffer right along with hapless Mortimer."

--Publishers Weekly, June 20, 2011
