Book Review - Zombelina

About the Book
Zombelina loves to dance. She moonwalks with mummies and boogies with bats. She spins like a specter and glides like a ghost and loves to dance for her family the most. When Zombelina enrolls in a ballet class for real girls, her dancing gives everyone the chills! But when her first recital brings on a case of stage fright, her zombie moans and ghoulish groans scare her audience away. Only her devoted family's cheers, in their special spooky way, help Zombelina dance the ballet debut of her dreams.

Introducing the most adorable zombie to ever grace the dance floor, Kristyn Crow's pitch-perfect rhyme and Molly Idle's charmingly spook-tacular illustrations will make every reader want to sway and sashay in their own zombie trance.

My Take on the Book
This was a very cute book that you and your family will fall in love with. Though it is about a zombie, this is not the zombie that you would hide your children from in any sense. The images were wonderful and the story brings out many themes of acceptance, courage and self-expression - all things that I know that I want my own children to learn. This is definitely a book that you can share around Halloween or any time of the year!
