There Was a Young Zombie Who Swallowed a Worm

There Was a Young Zombie Who Swallowed a Worm

Everyone’s heard about the old lady who swallowed a fly, but now it’s time to meet a little zombie, who’s swallowed…a worm.
We don’t know why he swallowed the worm – it made him squirm.

A funny, cumulative rhyming story children will adore – packed with toads, witches, bats, trolls and a VERY hungry little zombie – watch out!




A perfect blend of humour, nostalgia and spooky fun – an absolute must read for Halloween!

- Rachael Davis, Picture Book Perfect

A laugh out loud, spooktacular cumulative rhyming, magical mayhem story. It is super fun and gets them all giggling and squealing.

- Amy, Mammy Gittins, Book Enthusiast

A laugh out loud ending that my twins absolutely adore. It’s an absolute must-read with your little ones this Halloween.

- Fiona Eaton, Reviewer, Mini Travellers

“The author’s use of rhyme and alliteration adds a playful cadence to the narrative. … This lighthearted read-aloud is a good choice for parents and librarians seeking a Halloween story that will leave youngsters giggling and eager for tales more silly than spooky.”

- School Library Journal, USA
