Peanut Butter & Santa Claus: A Zombie Culinary Tale By Joe McGee


Back of Book:
 Reginald (the zombie), Zarfon (the alien), and Abigail Zink (the human) are all preparing for Christmas in Quirkville when the terrible news breaks: CHRISTMAS IS CANCELED! Santa is snowed in at the North Pole. The three friends hatch a plan to save the day. They load into Zarfon’s spaceship—along with lots of peanut butter for a surprise Christmas delivery to his home planet later on—and head straight for the North Pole. When they arrive, they find that Santa and his elves are trapped, not by snow, but by a marshmallow cream explosion. With a little bit of creativity, a little bit of Christmas spirit, and one big KA-POW!, the pals from Quirkville save Christmas and inadvertently create a delicious treat!
My Review:
I received a copy of this picture book from Abrams’s books in exchange for an honest review.
Joe has perfectly blended the themes of Halloween and Christmas and created another laugh out loud addition to the Zombie Culinary Tale Series.
Reginald, Zarfin, and Abigail are back and this time they are on a mission to save Christmas. When a storm prevents Santa from delivering presents, the three friends race to see how they can help. When they realize that the culprit is marshmallows, they come up with a quick, and yummy solution. The illustrations by Charles Santoso are familiar bright images that readers have fallen in love with. I loved the expressions on the character’s faces. Especially when they realize that the storm is made of marshmallows.  This is a terrific read-aloud for the Christmas season.
