Who's limping strangely down the hall
with outstretched arms and a groaning drawl?
A zombie! Could it really be?
I hope he won't come after me!

You race to class, but turn to see he’s sitting in the desk right next to you!

But odds are you’ll probably be okay, because this is no ordinary zombie.

This zombie doesn’t want to eat your brains—he wants to eat your books! Hide your textbooks and your fairy tales, because the little zombie is hungry and he doesn’t discriminate between genres. Will the school library be devoured, or will the children discover something the zombie likes to do with books even more than eating them?

This monster book is silly and fun, with a strong message about kindness and friendship. The little zombie teaches kids not to jump to conclusions and to give everyone a chance. And when a real-life mummy shows up, the zombie is the first to step up and offer the mummy his friendship—and to teach her a few things about the joy of books. This is the perfect monster book for little ones who want a thrill but aren’t looking for anything too scary.
