Little Zombie Dorian


What do you do when your child is interested in a macabre world of the un-dead?  For one real little girl, this was a true story.  Dorian loved movies that included our favorite monsters including werewolves, vampires, and zombies.  According to author Nathaniel:

With her bemoaning the fact that there were no books for her age range that matched her interest in the macabre, I decided that I would simply have to create one. Taking my inspiration from this heinous little hell raiser, Little Zombie Dorian was born.





I had the privilege of meeting the real Dorian at Dallas Comic Con this past spring, and she said her only complaint with the book is how small she is!  She was 5 when the book began it's creative process to fulfillment; now at the old age of nine, she feels like she's much taller, wiser, and older than her literary representative!

Just like her real life counterpart, Zombie Dorian is dealing with her size and how it relates to the world around her.  This children's book shows how Zombie Dorian uses her greatest weakness and makes it her greatest strength!  It's about finding what we CAN do rather than focusing on what we cannot.



I truly loved this book when I first saw it for both the illustrations as well as the story.  It's written in a poetic style and makes it fun to read for the entire family!  Nathaniel knows that this book may not be for everyone.  On Little Zombie Dorian's website, there is a disclaimer:

Due to the content of the book, it is clearly not for everyone. For instance, the portrayal of firearms in the book make it unfortunately inappropriate for a school setting...This book is aimed mainly at the kinds of people who are enthusiasts of this sort of genre and their children. Many children enjoy the thrill of horror and this book is a great way to encourage these children to begin reading at an early age. People of all ages can also appreciate the contrast in this adorably dark story.

If you, or your child, sound like this book is right for you, then you're in luck! One lucky reader will be winning a copy of  Little Zombie Dorian thanks to author Nathaniel Summers! We truly hope that you enjoy this book as much as we do!  Thanks for participating in #FamilySeptember with us, and a special thanks to Nathaniel and Little Zombie Dorian!
