Zombierella: Fairytales Gone Bad

Joseph Coelho

Published: 3rd September 2020 The first in a deliciously dark and funny series of twisted classics, written in verse by award-winning poet Joseph Coelho and illustrated by Freya Hartas. A yellow moon hangs in a satin sky the night Cinderella slips at the top of the stairs ... and dies. But not for long. The Shadow of Death arrives to breathe life back into her bones and, for three nights only, Cinderella goes forth as, Zombierella! With her skin as cold as ice and her faithful horse Lumpkin back by her side, can she seek revenge on her three cruel sisters, once and for all? Crawl out of the grave and step into your mushroom carriage for this haunting and humorous adventure of the undead girl searching for her happily ever after. Full of laugh out loud humour, rotten rhymes, and a gruesome narrative, this is the perfect book to make you fall in love with poetry and Joseph’s writing all over again.

This is such a fun story with excellent illustrations. It’s a story with enough familiarity to feel known but with enough difference to make it quirky and original. It’s great for reading alone, reading aloud and/or sharing. Enjoy!
