Gorgeous George & The ZigZag Zit-Faced Zombies Press Release
We are pleased to announce the brand new, much anticipated childrens book by Stuart Reid and Calvin Innes. Out January 2013.
The highly anticipated follow up to the best selling book, Gorgeous George & the Giant Geriatric Generator by Scottish author Stuart Reid will be hitting the shelves on the 31st January 2013. The book is the second in the Gorgeouss George series and will be published by My Little Big Town.
Gorgeous George & the ZigZag Zit-Faced Zombies sees the newly rebuilt school (see the first book) in Little Pumpington over-run by hoards of dribbling, sneezing, bogie munching snot zombies…. aand george and his friends aare all that staand between the virus spreading beyond the walls of the school.
Full of hilarious references to many of the classic zombie movies, this is much more than a book for children. It’s horrifyingly fun for readers of all ages. Written as a self read for 9 years and up, or as a read-along (with parents and teachers) for ages 7 and up. As with the first Gorgeous George book, the gruesome and silly content is intended to get even the most reluctant young readers (especially boys) to engage with, and enjoy reading.
The book is packed with gruesome and fantastically funny illustrations by popular childrens illustrator Calvin Innes, the man behind the illustrations in the first Gorgeous George book.
Join George, his Grandpa Jock, Allison, Crayon Kenny and new their friends Ben and Barbara as they fight for survival in a school over-run by snot-zombies! These lumbering, zit-faced zombies arent interested in eating brains…. they want to eat your bogies!
