In this hilarious picture book written by Hackmatack Award nominated author Kate Inglis and brilliantly illustrated by Eric Orchard, two best friends imagine ordinary life as classic monsters and mythical creatures. What would Evan the Zombie do for the school talent show? Who would Poppy the Muddy Wood Fairy have over for dinner? From an alien with three hundred eyeballs to giants and goblin queens, this outrageously entertaining book of back-and-forth poems will delight readers of all ages.
Kate Inglis lives along the coast of Nova Scotia most popular with ghost pirates. Her award-nominated novels for middle readers—The Dread Crew and Flight of the Griffons—are “spirited, gorgeously rendered” adventures. If I Were A Zombie is her first foray into a world for little monsters.
Eric Orchard is the illustrator of several books, including The Terrible, Horrible, Smelly Pirate. He won the Halifax Mayor’s Award for Book Illustration and his work has been included in the Society of Illustrator’s Annual competition and exhibition. Eric lives in Toronto.
