Zombies vs. Unicorns

Zombies vs. Unicorns
edited by Holly Black and Justine Larbalestier [j 813.08 Bla]

The title sums it up. This book is an anthology of stories written about zombies and unicorns and is aimed primarily at young adults. Between each story is a running commentary by two editors - Holly Black is the leader of Team Unicorn is Justine Larbalestier leads Team Zombie. While a bit graphic at times it redeems itself with bits of comedy. [If you enjoy this, you may also wish to try The Walking Dead graphic novel series by Kirkman or if you're looking for more young adult anthologies on magical beings I'd suggest Sideshow: Ten Original Tales of Freaks, Illusionists and Other Matters Odd and Magical which is available through interlibrary loan.] -- recommended by Carrie K. - Bennett Martin Public Library and South Branch Library
