What better way to celebrate the Halloween holiday than with a rotting, brain-eating kitty?!
The perfect accessory for any zombie lover, Zombie Cat: The Tale of a Decomposing Kitty, is out now and available in both hard cover and digitally at Amazon.com, bn.com, Barnes & Noble stores, independent book stores and comic shops around the country.
It's a story of self-control, friendship, and most importantly, the zombie apocalypse. What's not to love?
...the kind of coffee table book that I'd want around when I had company over.
A perfect novelty gift for pop culture loving cat owners.
Atherton and Straker compliment each other splendidly.
So get in the mood with this cute, yet frightening little animal tonight on Halloween!
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 refrains—for now—from zombie Bacchanalian delights, such as eating living beings' 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 Atherton's quirky storytelling combined with Bethany Straker's captivating (and slightly grotesque!) illustrations make this the perfect addition to any Halloween collection. It's the ideal gift for any crazed zombie fanatic—or equally crazed cat lover. 14 color illustrations
