Once Upon A Zombie
by: Billy Phillips & Jenny Nissenson
TAKE A BITE OUT OF YOUR FAVORITE FAIRYTALES WITH RIVETING FANTASY SERIES “Once upon a time, our worlds embodied perfection. Everyone lived happily in Wonderland, Emerald City, Neverland, and all the fairy tale kingdoms. Then it happened…”
"Something mysterious has happened to the classic characters of our beloved, timeless fairytales. A terrible curse has been cast upon their fantasy worlds—from Wonderland, to Oz, to the Enchanted Forest. The spell has transformed Rapunzel, Sleeping Beauty, Snow White and Cinderella into the undead who, despite their urges, valiantly refuse to give in to their zombie instincts. As their kingdoms rot away, it’s up to one girl to help them rise up, fight back and reclaim their world.
In Billy Phillips' new series Once Upon a Zombie, Caitlin Rose Fletcher, a vulnerable young girl prone to panic attacks, is thrust into the wondrous fairytale universe—which is now crawling with savage, blood-eyed zombies. As she searches for answers to reverse the curse, she eventually discovers that the truth is often scarier than the walking dead.
“There is a clear and terrible danger lurking in places unseen by the human eye,” Phillips says. “It is a danger powerful enough to prompt the living dead to rise up from the grave in search of the one person who might be able to prevent the unthinkable. That person turns out to be Caitlin."
This thrilling new children’s book provides a fresh perspective on popular fairytales, with the Billy Goats Gruff becoming Billy Goat Ghouls and the Three Little Pigs growing scars like Franken-ham. Once Upon a Zombie also features:
One of the first times all of the major fairy tale characters and kingdoms have merged into one book narrative.
A realm of imagination and human consciousness, where negative fears and thoughts wage war against positive thinking, certainty and optimism.
Zombie princesses who, despite their undead state, remain hauntingly beautiful thanks to the compassion in their hearts.
Blood-Eyed Zombies who reflect the selfishness, out-of-control, mindlessness of fear in our lives."
