    Mo Romero yes, Romero is a little zombie boy who likes to eat veggies But Zombie mom and dad can t believe he craves anything so gross This role reversal usually mom and dad want you to eat veggies will make both parents and children talk about eating veggies in a fun way.

    Picture BookOkay, I am going to be honest here and say that this book had me laughing out loud in the middle of the children s section of the library It is a story about a zombie named Mo who likes vegetables, while his parents are 100% carnivores Poor Mo tries everything he can to get on his parents bandwagon, but finds that he is just happy the way he is, and that maybe they can all come to a happy medium This book is great for ages 5 8, or even 30 The story itself mixes english with some spanish, so during read aloud you can introduce the spanish language in easy to remember phrases It also offers recipes at the back of the book for everyone s zombie potluck This would be a great activity for a library or school, to have this read aloud and either sample or make together some of the recipes either with real food or pretend as a way to promote healthier eating After all, if zombies can eat vegetables, why not kids and their families too Another thing that all kids like, is to pretend to be zombies This would be a good Halloween read, where kids could then maybe take a break to dance to the Monster Mash, and enjoy being all the scary types of monsters that come out during the month of October.

    Mo Romero is a non brain eating zombie Mo is a vegetarian, a hiding in the shed vegetarian who wants to be his true self with those he loves the most, his mom and dad Authors Megan and Jorge Lacera don t shy away from being realistic within the fantastical zombie pun filled world they have created often than not when a family member does not follow the cookie cutter path expected and makes it known, he or she is met with disbelief and resistance I appreciated that the authors respected young readers enough to show that Mo s plan and hopes that he would convince his parents on his very first try to accept his vegetarian lifestyle, flopped, because such is life Now the Laceras took it a step further than many stories I ve read where children are asserting their individuality Mo doesn t just say I m different , he reminds his parents how much of a Romero and a zombie he is, regardless of his food preferences, and that is golden, so much unites than separates us Mo helps the adults in his life focus on how much he is their ni o their Mo Again, in keeping it real for their readers, Mo s parents are understanding, but they don t jump in head first in being different like Mo, they promise to try and support his veggie gardening passion The illustrations and general zombie plot will have young zombie fans delighting in the availability of a book that caters to their love of beings that eat brains and other human parts, and is still age appropriate Adult readers will delight and laugh heartily at the zombified dish names I still laugh when I remember armpanadas , headstones, and other references to pop culture The Romeros will start great conversations about family, love, acceptance, and honoring differences as readers share their story.

    With zombies as hot as they are today, this is a welcome addition to humorous stories for kids.Mo Romero is not like other zombie boys He does not like zombie foods like brains , man naise , Dori toes , or Chili con ojos Instead, he would rather a delicioso meal of celery, tomatoes and carrots Horrors His parents just don t understand his taste buds, however they come to accept him as he is because they are than zombies they are a family Told using very yummy words like tantalizing and brain eating competitions , phrases like Holy Aioli , and puns found on foods and headstones Sarah Bellum and Juan Moortime , the text by Megan and Jorge Lacera is a delight to read aloud Sprinkled with Spanish, this is the kind of story that will tickle a kid s funny bone.Digital illustrations by Jorge Lacera are rich, lush, and full of good gory detail from the wallpaper in the house to the paintings on the walls to the food on the table The family, shown in shades of green, are cartoonish in style and featured in many different sight gags Kids may very well belly laugh at the reaction to his parents as they eat Mo s bisque.Although this topic being a picky eater has been covered in other books such as Gregory the Terrible Eater by Mitchell Sharmat Four Winds Press, c1980 , this story offers a fresh spin by adding fun recipes like Blood Bile Bisque , Zombie Finger Foods , and The Romero Family s Famous Shockamole , interweaving Spanish in the text, updating artwork using digital techniques, and featuring a family of zombies which adds an ick factor that kids gravitate toward.However, don t hold this back for Halloween or to use in a unit about food This charming story can also be used to demonstrate acceptance and celebration of diversity Different doesn t mean bad, different just means different we love you just the same This book is being published simultaneously in Spanish by Children s Book Press Lee Low Books.Highly Recommended for grades PreS 3.

    I loved, loved, loved this Like a mashup of GREGORY, THE TERRIBLE EATER and Count Duckula with a dash of Spanish vocabulary thrown in, this is the story of a little zombie child who just can t stomach brains, toes, and eyeballs he much prefers vegetables Little Mo s parents just don t get it They do everything they can to get their son to eat in the traditional zombie fashion, but Mo is steadfast veggies, not brains, are for him.At the end, there s a wonderful realization by all parties that even though Mo eats a little differently, he s still a zombie and he s still a loved and essential part of the family As a child who for a time was the only vegetarian in my family, I absolutely related to Mo and wished this book would have been around when I was a kid I hope that ZOMBIES DON T EAT VEGGIES will be discovered by 21st century vegetarian kids as well as any kid whose interests or tastes make them feel a little different among the rest of their family members This fun book even includes three spooky vegetable recipes at its conclusion that would make a great addition to a Halloween party or just as everyday snacks.

    Love love love this book in our house My three year old aughter immediately was drawn to the cover, even the inside covers, and thinks the book is so intriguing and the pictures captivating I really enjoy the lessons the book gives about how families can love each aa other even if they re different and that it s okay to like vegetables The pages are filled with phenomenal art, hilarious puns, and a great storyline Our favorite spread is when Mo creates a dish to try to trick his parents into eating and hopefully liking veggies, the images and words are so perfect, my daughter points at each one and has me read the page again and again This is a must have in your collection of great picture books
