49 Down, 3 To Go "It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Zombies" (52 Books, 52 Weeks)

It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Zombies takes traditional Christmas carols for a macabre turn by ading zombie-themed lyrics. The mix of traditional music with themes of the undead is clever and amusing, and the book is filled with dark illustrations that accompany the reworked lyrics.

A good example (sung to the tune of "Frosty the Snowman"):

Zombie the Snowman knew the brains were fresh that day,
So he said, "Please run, because it's lots more fun when I eat your brain that way."
Down through the village with a femur in his hand,
Running here and there all around the square,
Sayin', "Decapitate me if you can!"

This book is an inspiration to zombie fans everywhere to sing these songs around the holidays.
