Zombies Don't Eat Veggies!

By: Jorge Lacera

Megan Lacera

In this delightful debut by a talented husband-and-wife team, Mo Romero is a zombie with a deep, dark secret . . .
Mo Romero is a zombie who loves nothing more than growing, cooking, and eating vegetables. Tomatoes? Tantalizing. Peppers? Pure perfection! The problem? Mo's parents insist that their niño eat only zombie cuisine, like arm-panadas and finger foods. They tell Mo over and over that zombies don't eat veggies. But Mo can't imagine a lifetime of just eating zombie food and giving up his veggies. As he questions his own zombie identity, Mo tries his best to convince his parents to give peas a chance.
Super duo Megan and Jorge Lacera make their picture-book debut with this sweet story about family, self-discovery, and the power of acceptance. It's a delectable tale that zombie and nonzombie fans alike will devour.

Young zombie Mo Romero has an “absolutely despicable” craving: vegetables. His parents prefer such delicacies as brain-and-bean tortillas. Even when Mo prepares a meal for them of gazpacho disguised as “blood bile bisque,” it doesn’t win them over—at least not at first.

His parents prefer such delicacies as brain-and-bean tortillas. Even when Mo prepares a meal for them of gazpacho disguised as “blood bile bisque,” it doesn’t win them over—at least not at first. This Halloween take on a be-yourself story—with occasional, naturally integrated Spanish—is full of wordplay both in the text (“Holy aioli!”) and in the muted digital illustrations (“RIP Juan Moortime,” reads a gravestone). Recipes are appended; “zombie finger foods,” anyone? Concurrently published in Spanish as ¡Los zombis no comen verduras!
