ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS SANTA IS YOU: A Zombie Children’s Book
I really like Alan’s ‘children’s books for adults’.
The illustrations are beautifully done, and this book has a rhyming scheme like Book 2 in the My Little Brother Is A Zombie series. I recently said “I can pick a ‘Gandy Ass’ out of a line-up! When you see his artwork – I’m sure you’ll agree.
The book features Kyle McKay, also from the My Little Brother Is A Zombie series. (And, did I see a young Dracula in the first couple pages?) Kyle only has one wish this Christmas. Not toys or new shoes… he only wants to meet Santa Claus! Will this meeting be the end of the holiday season forever?
Keep your eyes peeled for my reviews on Kyle McKay in the ‘My Little Brother Is A Zombie’ series. AND, Alan has also agreed to an interview! If you have any questions, post them in the comments, or email them to me, before the end of the month.
The Fable of Dracula & Lulu is a ‘children’s book for adults’, that takes us on the journey of how a sad & lonely little boy became the infamous blood sucker we know today. Alan Gandy has rewritten Dracula’s history, good vs evil, Heaven vs Hell, and even Epic Battles have rules!
It’s greatly written, beautifully illustrated, and includes an afterward from the author that show how much time, effort, and research went into this book.
I really enjoyed this story, and it has me thinking about the childhood lives of other monsters! Was The Creature From The Black Lagoon bullied in school because of the way he looked? Did the Warewolf have to seek therapy because of body issues? What if The Mummy was claustrophobic? Do you think The Invisable Man got lonley?
ALWAYS GET PICTURES!
That’s the first thing I think of.
Someone calls, there has been an accident, someone is headed to the ER… I say ‘Take a picture’!
No one ever does.
They ALWAYS regret it.
Voyeur Dead Reloaded was written for me! The Zompoc is beginning, ground zero is a Strip Club, and someone has a camera. He is a twisted & perverted social deviant…but that just makes for a better story. His story takes you with him during the beginning of the end. The rest… you have to find out for yourself.
This one is a book I recommend getting as a real book. Alan’s photography books need to be appreciated in true form. Don’t get me wrong, the ebook doesn’t suck -I have both- it’s just that the paperback is more aesthetically pleasing.
It also contains excerpts from Claire’s journal, giving you a different take on the whole thing.
ALPHA GEEKS GO!
I had a blast reading this book! Maybe because I’m a nerd girl at heart ♥ The characters & the references are so witty, and so funny! I was giggling throughout the entire story! Then I read the afterward and I was bawling… but, you have to read this book to know why!
This is another ‘childrens book for adults’, like the My Little Brother Is A Zombie’ series, and it’s packed with original illustrations by Alan.
Max & his buddies are having a typical day, typical for them, when the zombie uprising occurs. Through their skill, knowledge, and maybe a little help from a super power picked up at the nuclear power plant, it’s up to them to save the day, save the town, save the world! Assistance from the new girl, brains from the gang, and a few hilarious games of “Got Your Nose”, bring them to the place where it all began. Do they have the power to stop it?
The Amazon synopsis :
Meet Max, a sophomore at Summerdale high. Max was abandoned as a baby, and ever since then he has been bouncing from orphanage to foster care until he finally ended up at the Summerdale House for Boys. The only constant in Max’s life have been the heroes in the comics he collects.
When a bizarre occurrence strikes Summerdale, Max and his two best school mates, Forrest the gamer and Kale the goth embark on a hilarious adventure filled with laughs, tears and a lot of geekyness. Can Max rise up and become like the heroes he admires? And more importantly can he find the Family he never had?
Max and the Geeks is jam packed with geeky references for all ages. So kids go grab your parents and parents go get your kids because sometimes it takes a family to see an adventure through to the end.
Max and the Geeks is suggested for ages 11 and up.
