Most of the time I choose books that sound good. Sometimes I buy books that sound so terrible that they arouse my curiosity.

When I saw The Zombie Project (Boxcar Children Mysteries #128) for sale on Amazon I thought "WTF are they doing to my childhood?" Then I bought it because I needed to know. I think it's impossible to really review this book. It's bad. Sometimes I feel like it's a joke. Then I find myself wondering "Were they always this bad & I just never realized?"

So here are some of t

For students grades 2-5 ready for easy chapter books that like mysteries. I have some of these already in my library and they aren't very popular, so I'm hoping the zombie angle on this one will increase their circulation. This book is not for me but I hope there will be some fans of the series that will check it out.

I totally listened to this audiobook the past two nights going to be. He had a very soothing voice, brought me back to my childhood. Benny still kind of gets on my nerves like he did when I was younger. Guess some things never change!

The kids go on a cabin retreat with zombies! Will Benny like brains? How many zombies are there? Will we have a new series with zombie detectives? (I wish) Read and find out!
