Bodacious books you spotlighted here, Susanne. They look like my kind of books. Especially the first one. Stone Rabbit is AWESOME! Thanks for leading me there. *waving*

Hi, Robyn! I thought the dust bunnies were great for a book. That website is so cool! Thanks for stopping by.

Stina Lindenblatt said...

The author of Night Of The Living Dust Bunnies must have peeked under my bed and was inspired to write the book. :D

Linda Jackson said...

Thanks for spotlighting these, Susanne. My son is six and is totally into zombies already. He'll love the dust bunnies book. :)

Susanne Drazic said...

Hi, Stina! And here I thought the author had gotten a look under my bed, LOL. Clearing out dust bunnies is on my to-do list, as I don't want them turning into zombies. ; )

Hi, Linda! If your son likes zombies, I think this will be a great book for him to read. Thanks for stopping by.

What fun books. I went to get a copy of the second book and it says it was sold out - waaahhhh :( - but this is a fun posting. Zombie dust bunnies - how cute - lol. Thanks for posting. I can't wait to see what else you have going on this month. See you in the postings - E :)

These look like fun books (and about my speed for zombie mayhem).

Night of the Living Dust Bunnies--LOL! Awesome. I'll have to check that one out for the girls. Thanks, Susanne! :o) <3

Zombie Penpal - that sounds like a creepy AND cute idea! So Zombies are your theme for October?

alexia said...

Those sound fun! I think it's so interesting how society is so obsessed with zombies.

Susanne Drazic said...

Hi, Sherry! It is a great theme for Halloween. So far the zombies have stayed calm, but we will see.

Hi, Joylene! Night of the Living Dust Bunnies was a fun book to read. The pages are very colorful and comic book/cartoon-like which has great appeal with kids.

Hi, Elysabeth! Zombie Penpal was a fun book to read. I like how it had so many possible book endings, depending on the path you choose.

Susanne Drazic said...

Hi, Jemi! These books are great for any kids that are into zombies.

Hi, Peggy! Thanks for stopping by. There are a lot of great zombie books out for kids.

Hi, Stacy! These are the perfect books for anyone who is not big time into zombies. They are fun to read and there is no gore.

Susanne Drazic said...

Hi, LTM! Night of the Living Dust Bunnies is a great book for both boys and girls. Thanks for stopping by.

Hi, Margo! I think it's a fun theme for the month. Thanks for stopping by.

Hi, Alexia. Yeah, I'm amongst those who like zombies. The new season of The Walking Dead starts this coming Sunday. Yeah!

elysabeth said...

Not fair that it is sold out now. Lol. I would like to get a copy at some point, maybe it will come out of being sold out by the end of the month. E :-)

Hi, Elysabeth. Sorry to hear that it is sold out. I'm sure it has something to do with Halloween being at the end of the month.
