The ultimate zombie fan's dream, 10,000 Zombies features a stunning collection of terrifying zombies in all their gruesome glory. Created by Emmy-nominated illustrator David Hartman, each terrifying character has been neatly hewn at the neck and waist, allowing you to flip the pages creating thousands of different zombies, all with their own accompanying story written by horror expert Alexander Cox...

10,000 Zombies is a fun book that will appeal to very young zombie fans. The idea is simple, the pages are split horizontally into three segments so that the zombie illustrations can be flipped over to change their heads, bodies and legs. The results can at times be rather bizarre, hilarious, or downright freaky. There are some zombies that have all their body segments (like the clown and pirate zombie) but there are plenty which don't really have matching segments. And, once you've mixed and matched your zombie parts you can read its own zombie tale.

The stories are split into three segments (printed opposite the zombie's head, body and leg sections). The first introduces you to the fact that a zombie apocalypse is taking place; the second sees an explanation of where you are and ends with you being confronted by an undead; and the third sees you battling against your zombie foe.

It's fun and amusing, although there are only 23 head/body/leg sections from which to make your combinations from - but apparently that should give you more than 10,000 zombies and 10,000 stories to chose from.
