Rose Asphalte is a book series for kids published by Bayard Editions in France. The first volume, La colo des zombis, was written by Anne Schmauch and illustrated by Raphaël Chabassol, better known as Mokë.
“Help. Prisoners of the sheep institute.” When her carrier pigeon brings her this message, Rose immediately signs up for this strange camp, taking along her best friend Firmin. There, mysteries accumulate: the domain is infested with fluorescent orange slugs that glow at night, the children disappear one by one, and a sizzling military music sometimes resounds in the corridors. Rose and Firmin are horrified to discover what’s going on at this so-called “Winning Warriors” summer camp: the crazy old military woman and her daughter are turning the kids into zombies with a diet of radioactive slugs and a well-honed lobotomization technique. When Rose and Firmin find themselves zombified, who will be able to save them?
