No one in the town of Dementedyville ever goes near Old Lady Imavitch's house, until the day there is a garage sale. Then the town can't wait to buy her stuff. Against his better judgment, Stanley decides to buy the beat-up teddy bear with the bunny ear, a dangly eye and claws. And instead of listening to the warning of the creepy old lady, Stanley trows out the box with the instructions and takes the stuffed animal home.

Stanley awakes to a scene of horror in the playroom. All the other stuffed animals have been vivesectioned. Only Zmbiekins was spared. Thinking it was the dog's fault, Stanley takes they toy to school. Soon his school mates are turning into zombies. Can Stanley find the cure in time?

A funny, fresh, and surprisingly age appropriate, take on zombies from Ottawa author and teacher, Kevin Bolger. This will appeal to the junior boy with it's gross out humour and cartoon illustrations. There are times that Bolger is not writing for the young, but rather the parents who might read the book to their children. Fun stuff.
