Description

When a classmate hurts his feelings by calling him a fairy, Brandon turns to his imagination and his two best friends, who rally to his side. Brandon informs his pals that he is now a zombie who will destroy his enemies with his tears. They respond by turning into a ghost and a vampire, ready to protect him from the mean words being thrown at him during recess.

What starts as a bullying moment ends in a creative and empathetic exchange between the boys. Brandon is able to smile again — especially when the friends come to a decision on his new nickname: the Zombie Prince.

Luc Melanson’s graphic illustrations bring humor to this sensitive story about kindness and imagination healing the hurt left by unkind words.
