Amazon Inspire Digital Educational Resources. Amazon Rapids Fun stories for kids on the go. Introduction by best-selling author Christopher Moore. Nov 14, Brittany rated it did not like it. Pretty lame excuse for a book, but was looking for a quick holiday ebook while waiting in line. Rudolph the zombie reindeer was the best one, but they are all pretty dumb.
An 8-year-old boy could easily write this book or better. Jul 17, Jillyn rated it it was ok. This is an okay little read. As the title suggests, this is a caroling book in which classic Christmas carols that we all know and love are given a twist so that they're about zombies instead. They're super gory, full of images of rotting flesh and extremities ripping off and words like "ooze" and "goo".
They're not particularly well done- there's a few individual lines of lyrics that are pretty funny or clever. But there's a lot of shoving extra syllables into places where they don't fit, so it This is an okay little read. But there's a lot of shoving extra syllables into places where they don't fit, so it's kind of hard to sing along with the lyrics even if you wanted to. This seems to me like a book fair book, or maybe a bargain book that you see on those last-minute shelves as you are in line to check out at Barnes and Noble.
If you're a 12 year old boys who thinks that blood is cool and farts and boogers are hilarious, then godspeed. This book is for you. It's cute to read through once, but it's not something I'll remember next year, nor will I have an urge to flip through it again. It is as advertised, a book of zombie Christmas carols.
But there was too much gore for my taste. Dec 30, Serena rated it it was amazing. The holidays are a time for merriment and getting together with family and friends to celebrate and share. Part of the holidays has always included caroling, at least for some people.
My husband and I love to sing, though we don't sing well, but we like to make up lyrics from time to time. Spradlin and illustrated by Jeff Weigel is the perfect collection of remastered Christmas Carols to liven up the holidays. There's even an introduction The holidays are a time for merriment and getting together with family and friends to celebrate and share. There's even an introduction by the witty and dark humored Christopher Moore.
First, can you tell what classic novel this line's beginning resembles? Spradlin's lines are well placed and maintain the rhythm of the original carols. Zombie, the Snowman Page 39 Zombie the Snowman was a jolly, happy ghoul, With a corncob pipe and some boy's nose And two eyes he got at school. Zombie the Snowman is a fairy tale, they say; He was undead, it's so, But the children know how he came back to life one day. There must have been a virus in That old silk hat they found, For when they placed it on his head, He began to dance around.
Oh, Zombie the Snowman was alive as he could be, And the children say he ate brains all day, And they ran from that Zombie. Thumpety, thump thump, Thumpety, thump thump, Look at Zombie go. Thumpety, thump thump, Thumpety, thump thump, Over the hills of snow. 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. Zombie the Snowman Had to hurry on his way, But he waved good-bye, sayin', "Please do cry, I'll eat your brains someday!
Chock full of gruesome and surreal drawings of zombies in Santa Claus suits and other holiday outfits are eye-catching, and add additional verve to the carols. This humorous Christmas carol book would make a great stocking stuffer and an after-holiday gift. Heck, it would just be a fun gift for birthdays, anniversaries, and any other occasion. Dec 03, Nicole rated it really liked it Shelves: It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year It's the most wonderful time to feel fear, While the virus is jelling, And everyone's yelling that Zombies are here, It's the most wonderful time to feel fear.
There's be fresh brains for roasting, Intestines for toasting, And body parts out in the snow. There'll be Undead beheading And Zombies a-spreading, From viruses long, long, ago. It's the most wonderful time to feel fear. There'll be no Zombies slowing And brains will be glowing, When undead ones are near. It's the most wonderful time to feel fear! Zombie virus we bring to you and your kin; We'll eat brains for Christmas and through the New Year.
Oh, bring us a hippocampus; Oh, bring us a hippocampus; Oh, bring us a hippocampus and a cup of root bear. We won't go until we eat you; We won't go until we eat you; We won't go until we eat you, so come on out here.
We Three Kings We three spleens, you know where we are: Two in the kitchen and one in the car. We are still eating, people are fleeing. Let's eat the one in the car. Oooooh, spleens of wonder, they taste right. We could eat spleens all day and night. We're still eating, people screaming.
Let's eat until first light. Jul 09, Brian Sammons rated it liked it. Spradlin has taken thirty of the most beloved carols and popular Christmas related tunes and has changed the words to reflect the ever growing Undead American point of view. Luckily zombies are atheists who knew? A wise choice as no one needs the image of baby zombie Jesus eating brains in the manger.
I wish I would have known this existed when I wrote my own zombie parodies to Christmas songs, for a library program. It's just another way to spend money, because even though it was supposed to be comical it was too corny and unimaginative. But some of the titles were amazing: Return to Book Page. If you are located outside the U. Thanks for signing up!
Oh wait, forget I said that. To add to the overall feel Author Michael P. To add to the overall feeling of wacky wrongness the book evokes so well there are numerous black and white illustrations by artist Jeff Weigel. These depict zombies engaging in a wide array of yuletide yuckiness, such as a merry undead decorating a tree with his own intestines, stockings hung by the chimney with care and the bloody legs still inside them, and other insidiously ingenious illustrations. For zombie fans getting this book is a no brainer. Dec 18, Michele Lee rated it really liked it Shelves: There's familiar songs that kids will find hilarious, and more obscure ones that adults will love as well.
This is an excellent gift book, and could be fun for sing-alongs at library holiday parties for kids or adults as well. The illustrations are somewhat gory rotting bodies, zombies decorating Christmas trees with entrails and bare brains. Being black and white blunts them, but kids under ten or so might be bothered. Still it's a great community or group interaction type book that will make people laugh and get new holiday songs stuck in their heads. Jan 14, Kelly H. Maybedog rated it liked it Shelves: If you really like zombies, you'll love this book. Otherwise, it's just kind of fun. It's kind of a one-joke thing, the lyrics are all about zombies eating humans.
There's some talk of being chased by zombies, a virus causing zombies, and even wanting to be a zombie. They're all put to the tunes of popular Christmas songs including both classics and modern favorites like Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer. Some have holiday themes, many don't. My biggest problem with the book is that many of the If you really like zombies, you'll love this book.
My biggest problem with the book is that many of the lyrics just don't fit into the music measure well.
They can be kind of forced. Undead moan, are you listening? In the lane, blood is glistening? A horrible sight, We're screaming tonight, Runnin' through a Zombie wonderland. Aug 23, Miss Ryoko rated it really liked it Shelves: This book is hilarious! But what made it even more enjoyable is that I actually found karaoke versions of the song and sang the zombie versions of them as I read the book.
Fresh brains roasting on an open fire Zombies chewing off your nose LOL! But some of the titles were amazing: But also, a fun surprising that Christopher Moore , the greatest writer of all time, did the introduction! Dec 08, Anna rated it really liked it Shelves: Mind you, I'm no zombie fan and I only saw a film or two on the subject. But the alterations of the songs you hear every Christmas are just really fun: So are the pictures: So here's to a Zombilicious Christmas!
Mar 28, Andy Phillips rated it liked it Shelves: This is a collection of 30 Christmas carols rewritten to include lyrics about zombies.
It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Zombies!: A Book of Zombie Christmas Carols [ Michael P. Spradlin, Jeff Weigel, Christopher Moore] on uzotoqadoh.tk *FREE*. uzotoqadoh.tk: It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Zombies!: The Book of Zombie Christmas Carols (): Michael P. Spradlin: Books.
That's basically it, which is fine as that's what the blurb on the back cover claims it is. Some are funnier than others, and the links to the original songs are a bit tenuous, but it's not a bad effort. There are also a large number of illustrations of fairly good quality that depict some aspect of each song.
