Pat the Zombie - book review

It is no mystery that I like zombies.  So, when I tell you that I received a zombie item that excited me, it's only natural to take my opinion with a grain of salt.  Pat the Zombie, however, is a book I enjoyed that definitely deserves your attention.

Written by Aaron Ximm, the book is an adult spoof of the children's classic, Pat the Bunny.  Using "adult" here does not imply anything dirty.  It is simply a reminder that you want to keep this one away from the kiddies.  Pat the Zombie is the same tiny, cute size as the original and features the same hands-on additions.  You have the "peek-a-boo" towel you lift, the furry rabbit to touch, holes, mirrors, rough textures, and so on.  All of this with a fun, made for adult fans of zombies vibe.

I chuckled as I viewed every page.  The same gimmicks that entertained us as children amused me as an adult.  I did touch the bunny.  I did look into the mirror.  I felt the gritty bones, smelled the scratch-n-sniff rotting flesh, and played peek-a-boo!  I had fun.

Often times, I will bring new products to work in order to gauge the interest of my co-workers.  I work in an office environment with 30 to 50 year-olds.  Yes, I am old.  Everyone enjoyed this book.  It sparked memories, caused groans of shock and laughter, and demanded attention.  At the very least, walk into your local book store and read it; It'll take five minutes.  But, I highly doubt you will regret owning this palm-sized gem and I am certain you will entertain entertain enough friends to get your money's worth.
