It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Zombies: A Book of Zombie Christmas Carols (19)
This is just a small, simple book where the author has taken the liberty of assuming the the Zombiepocalypse has happened, and that all of the traditional Christmas songs have been rewritten accordingly. With songs like "I Saw Mommy Chewing Santa Claus," "Have Yourself a Medulla Oblongata," and "Deck the Halls with Parts of Wally," this book is a hilarious new take on those classic songs from your childhood.
The best part of this book, though, may be the drawings that pepper the pages between carols illustrated by Jeff Weigel. Imagine a giant zombie reindeer with a glowing nose or a zombie boy unwrapping a present as a zombie puppy licks his face. I wish I could show you some of these pictures, but I'm entirely frightened by zombie copyright lawyers, so here's a link to a Google search that includes a few.
This book was tons of fun for me, but if you're a traditionalist who looks for reasons to get offended, skip it.
