Bartholomew is a happy go lucky zombie who likes feasting on cakes, reciting poetry, and planting trees. Not at all what you'd expect from a zombie.
Children will delight in the colorful and detailed illustrations and laugh as people flee in fear from the gentle and kind zombie. Readers are kept engaged as they search for hidden brains and other items throughout the pages.
This entertaining story is told in whimsical rhyme, which is my favorite type of children's book. Stories told in rhyme benefit children in so many ways. Rhyme helps to improve oral language and to develop reading and writing skills plus they're just fun to read!
I highly recommend picking up a copy of Bartholomew Buggins.
