Sometimes you get an email that just makes you smile. As was the case with Zombie Cat: The Tale of a Decomposing Kitty. Written by Isabel Atherton with illustrations by Bethany Straker, the "adult picture book" tells the story of a playful kitty named Tiddles, who gets into something he shouldn't have and now he's a zombie. Here's the full synopsis:
Tiddles is a suave, carefree kitty cat whose only pleasures in life are eating mice, wooing the ladies, and being generally apathetic toward his owner, Jake. But when a toxic spill occurs outside of town, Tiddles finds himself savagely attacked by a nasty-looking radioactive field mouse, and he wakes up as one of the undead. However, he still retains a bit of compassion and refrains—for now—from zombie Bacchanalian delights, such as eating living beings’ brains! Umm . . . any brains at all!
However, Tiddles, a.k.a. Zombie Cat, is decomposing rapidly and would prefer to live a normal life in the zombie apocalypse with his owner, Jake. But will Jake take in his former cuddly pet or will ZC be doomed to roam the streets trying to avoid the inevitable pull of his undead yearnings?

This sounds amazing. It's probably not a good children's book, but this is the kind of coffee table book that I'd want around when I had company over.
Zombie Cat: The Tale of a Decomposing Kitty, is due out on October 1st, 2012 from Skyhorse Publishing.
