This is not great literature, but it is an engrossing quick read that is perfect for reluctant readers who want something really goofy to read.
The main characters are two boys who manage to lose their bikes while attempting something remarkably dangerous, and to replace them, they answer an ad from a bulletin board. All they have to do is do some weeding, clean up a garage, get some light bulbs...and defeat a shark-headed zombie. Of course, that last must be a joke, right? Well...

Henry (the bold) and Keats (the unbold) are cousins who need to raise money to buy new bikes after theirs are crashed and sunk in a nearby lake following one of Henry's good ideas. They answer an ad on a community bulletin board for someone to help with odd jobs for big $$$. Readers notice that the ad is "Looking for someone who can work real magic!" and realize that this is no ordinary job. But our heroes do not, or there would be no book. This is a humorous romp, fairly easy to read (mid-third ...more

Jenna's Review:

Keats and Henry need money because their bikes fell into a river while riding down a steep hill.

This upset them because now didn’t bikes so they needed to buy new ones.

They go to the supermarket to find their moms to tell them what happened. And then Keats ran up to the notice board then he found a paper that said ‘money for a free jobs’. So he’s eyes lit up with excited because now they could earn money to buy new bikes.

After talking to
This was actually pretty cute and magical. Boys had to go through a lot to earn some cash. What I do is why its a shark-headed zombie. It was just a shark zombie or zombie shark, whatever way u want to say it. The title makes it sound like its a zombie aka human with a shark head. It looked like a shark, swam like a shark, flopped like a shark, so it was a shark turned zombie. So weird. It could swim through ground too.

I thought this book was super cute. Of course I finished in a day since it is a kids book.
A good book for Riley
The first book that I read with Sam through VT's Everybody Wins program. A 21st century of the Hardy Boys. Sam enjoyed it. My perspective, it is good if it makes a 3rd-grader want to read. Several things needed to be accomplished by the two cousins if the problem was to be solved and they accomplished it all, mostly spurred on by the continuous threat of an attack of the shark=headed zombie! Now we are into "Ralph S. Mouse" by Beverly Cleary and it has come full circle. I read Beverly Cleary boo ...more

Recommends it for: 6-8 year old boys
Fun read. Perfect for those 6-8 year old boys who fight reading. Keats and Henry lose their bikes during a hare-brained idea of Henry's. To get new bikes they decide to get a job. Once again, Henry finds them the job at a creepy house. The boys then have to figure out how to complete the job and get out alive when a shark-headed zombie is after them.
For a stepping Stones book, this was pretty good. The story had only a couple of places where there could have been more smoothly made transitions.
Not at the top of my selection list.
I liked this book because it is funny when the kids get attacked by a shark headed zombie and they get scared of it
"Doyle’s reader-friendly and engaging story packs in a remarkable amount of action and fun."--Booklist
