In Dawn of Zombie Haiku, the followup to Ryan Mecum's popular Zombie Haiku, zombies invade Manhattan, and they're famished. This book recounts the zombie apocalypse in the haiku journal of a ten-year-old girl named Dawn, whose father has schooled her in the ways of fighting the undead through his love of zombie movies. Together the pair come to realize it is time to execute their Zombie Escape Plan along with a few of their friends.

Zombie escape plans rarely go as expected. Dawn of Zombie Haiku recounts the group's downfall in gut wrenching detail which is, of course, inevitable, but not before Dawn has a chance to channel a few of her favorite poets during the course of her macabre memoir. The last half is particularly gruesome.

Using only haiku, this reads like a short novel. It's enhanced by lots of illustrations to complete the zombie haiku story. If you love haiku and zombies, this is definitely the book for you. I might check out the author's other haiku works: Werewolf Haiku, Vampire Haiku, and Zombie Haiku: Good Poetry For Your.....Brains. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

Some race. Some lurch. Others come crawling, limping, staggering--dragging themselves toward anyone who might still have a pulse. Zombies invade the island of Manhattan, and they are hungry. The story of the zombie apocalypse is told through the eyes of Dawn, a ten-year-old girl who has been well-schooled in the undead because of her father's love of zombie movies. As the zombies approach, Dawn and her dad realize the time has come to implement their Zombie Escape Plan, so they gather friends and escape to the Statue of Liberty. Only the plan doesn't go quite as expected. Dawn documents their downfall in her haiku journal, where the limb-snapping, eye-popping, bone-crunching zombies eventually make her one of their own. In gory detail, and sometimes channeling her favorite poets, she describes the gruesome scenes before her--and her own frightening impulses.… (more)
