Gorgeous George & the Zigzag Zit-faced Zombies by Stuart Reid

Hey, what a title!   My Little Big Town are the Hull publisher that produce the Tiny Twisted Tales series that I reviewed a couple of weeks ago (see what I thought here).   They also publish the Gorgeous George series by Stuart Reid and illustrated by Calvin Innes.   The Zigzag Zit-faced Zombies is follow up to Gorgeous George & The Giant Geriatric Generator.  I love these titles, in fact I really love these books!

Beware though, if you are a parent, do take a look through the stories before handing them over to your little ones to read.  This story has some pretty gross themes - there are loads and loads of bogies - described explicitly, enough to make your stomach turn over, but children will adore the writing - especially little boys.

Nose picking, zombies and lots and lots of bogies - all illustrated perfectly by Calvin Innes.  Stuart Reid has created a world that is stomach-churning at times, but so funny, so engaging and just perfect for slightly older children.

Gorgeous George has his own webpage, check it out at - you can find loads of information about the author, the books and all of the characters.

Stuart Reid does lots of school visits, a list of the schools that he is due to visit can be found on the website too.

You can like him on Facebook, or follow him on Twitter

My thanks to Katy at My Little Big Town for introducing me to the world of Gorgeous George and the snot zombies!
