I’m extremely pleased to report that my first children’s book will be published in 2018! Even better, I got to work with my good friend Glenn Chadbourne on this project and his detailed paintings really made the story come to life… so to speak! I’ll share some of his incredible interior artwork in the months to come, but in the meantime, here are the important details:
About the Book:
Little Boy Zombie lives on a big farm just outside of Romero Town with Mama Zombie, Papa Zombie, and Rex the Zombie Dog.
One day, while Mama Zombie and Papa Zombie are away, Boy Zombie is left in charge of the farm. But when he gets bored, he decides to play a prank on the citizens of ZomBeeTown. He yells toward town, “Humans here, humans here!” And everyone comes shambling to the farm to help.
When they discover they’ve been tricked, Boy Zombie is warned by his elders: “Don’t cry ‘humans’ when there are no humans!”
But will he learn his lesson in time?
The Zombie Who Cried Human is the first book in the “Friendly Little Monsters” series from Brian James Freeman and Glenn Chadbourne, who are blending classic fables with modern storytelling techniques to entertain children and adults of all ages.
