Zachary Zombie and the Lost Boy, A Story for Demented Children by John H. Carroll

Genre: YA/Adult

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Goodreads Says: Zachary is the personal zombie of Gert the Wicked Witch. She sent him to fetch newts from the forest. Along the way, he finds a lost boy named Tobias who had been following an emo bunny in the hopes of holding it and making it feel better. When the boy asks nicely for help getting to his home in the village, Zachary agrees. 

Along the way, they run into a cranky stag and a pretty woman who dreams of meeting a prince. A party in the cemetery isn’t the proper place to take a boy, but zombies aren’t always proper and one of the worst things about villagers is that they always seem to have a supply of pitchforks and torches. 
Will the boy make it home? Will Zachary give in to the craving for brainsss? 
Caution: This story is not for normal children. If you have any intention of raising a well adjusted child, this is not the right tale for you.

This is a whacked out fairy tale but then again the author kind of tells you so before you even begin. I think it was well written but it just wasn't for me.

A boy has lost his way and asks a Zombie to get him back home. A few things happen along the way like so many fairy tales.

I think the author has a very nice imagination and that people should give this read a try. You might just find you like it!
