In an interview on Mother. Write. (Repeat). you said you were looking for “anything quirky.” A zombie rabbit who leads a group of decomposing rodents to liberate an animal testing lab has a pretty high quirk factor. I hope you’ll consider ZOMBIE RABBIT for your list.
Death as a zombie is not going so hot for Milo the rabbit. His eyeball won’t stop bouncing on his face, and if he doesn't find a way to move on to the Misty Meadow, he’ll have to go to The Hot Place. Being chased by predators for eternity would totally stink.
If he wants to move on, he has to rescue a rabbit from an animal testing lab. As usual, he spaced out when he was getting the directions. Now he has to figure this out the hard way. Lucky for him, he’s got a one armed squirrel and his skeleton wife, an owl pellet, and a dried out frog skin to help him. They’re sure to make all the difference in Milo’s quest.
To succeed they have to get past a riddling fox, a wake of carrion-loving vultures, and a one-eyed Rottweiler. Once they reach the human-infested lab, they have to defeat the dastardly Lady in Pink. But hey, they can’t get any deader, right? So what could go wrong? Oh yeah, if they don’t complete the task by the next full moon, or before he disintegrates, Milo will wind up in The Hot Place. No pressure there.
ZOMBIE RABBIT is a 33,000 word Middle Grade, Adventure.
Thank you for taking the time to consider my query.
