A book about a zombie stuffed animal that turns the middle school kids into zombies and the teachers never notice a thing? It was a great idea and really well written for the middle school student.
A definite recommendation for reluctant readers, especially boys, or anyone who liked the Diary of a Wimpy Kid books.
This book was so enjoyable! It was well written and a lot of fun!
Each chapter was simple, fast paced, and had amazing illustrations!
The story flowed well and the characters were lovable!
I'm very excited for the next installment!
