Peanut Butter and Brains
words by Joe McGee, pictures by Charles Santoso
published by Abrams Books for Young Readers
Reginald isn’t like the other zombies who shuffle through Quirkville, scaring the townspeople and moaning for BRAINSSSSS! The only thing Reginald’s stomach rumbles for is sticky peanut butter and sweet jelly. He tries to tell his zombie pals that there’s more to life than eating brains, but they’re just not interested. Will Reginald find a way to bring peace to Quirkville and convince the other zombies that there’s nothing better than PB&J?
“Santoso’s ink-and-watercolor drawings..strike a successful silly-scary balance…Striking a reportorial tone, newcomer McGee gets substantial comic mileage out of repeating the word ‘brains’—or ‘brainsssss,’ as it’s evocatively spelled at several points.”
