Mortimer was lonely.
Cupid’s Ball was just a few weeks away and he didn’t have a sweetheart.
Oh, he tried, but somehow the ladies didn’t appreciate Mortimer’s affections.
Synopsis: (Kelly DiPucchio)
Mortimer is looking for love. And he’s looking
everywhere! He’s worked out at the gym (if only
his arm wouldn’t keep falling off). He’s tried
dance lessons (but the ladies found him to be a bit
of a stiff). He’s even been on stalemate.com.
Make an advert for a partner but you have to be something a bit different, like Mortimer.
Write a zombie love poem.
Dress up like a zombie for Valentine’s.
I love this book, it’s something different for this heart and flowers season. Very fun!
