This clever Christmas story turns the narrator of Clement C. Moore's classic Christmas poem into a silly, stumbling, zombie dad. It follows the same story as the original poem, with some zombie twists along the way. I appreciated the undead humor as much as my kids and it was a fun read. As a read-aloud, there were a couple awkward spots in the prose, but otherwise it flowed well.
A few of the lines were lost on my kids (5 and 3), especially since they are not familiar with zombies. However, coming off a Halloween high, they know a monster when they see one, and they are familiar with the original poem. They were excited about a monster Christmas book! There are some fun zombie details in the drawings if you look closely.
Disclosure: I received a free e-copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
