There seems to be a trend of kids books that aren't actually kids books. Or books that might not seem appropriate for kids, but that many a kid would read and think are awesome. Go the Fuck to Sleep is a particularly hilarious example of this style of book, especially the audiobook version as read by none other than Samuel L Jackson. And under the same humorously strange literary sub-genre there is also, I Am A Pole (And So Can You!) from Stephen Colbert.
The latest not for kids book in the guise of a kids book to cross my path is Zombie Cat: The Tale of a Decomposing Kitty. A simple little tale of the zombie apocalypse, a cat who gets infected, and the owner who takes his beloved pet back into his home.
Zombie Cat is an enjoyable quick little enjoyable horrific geeky read, perfect for a Halloween night bedtime story as long as the kid being read to isn't too sissy or squeamish. I look forward to the audio-book, I think as read by Simon Pegg or Nick Frost would seem appropriate.
