Recommends it for: anyone who likes PVZ
Read this to my 5 year old and he LOVED it. I was so excited to find out that there were PVZ comics! In our house PVZ is king, so this comic was right on time. Crazy Dave was absolutely hilarious. In this comic, Zomboss was trying to take over the world, so Crazy Dave and his group had to travel back in time to set everything straight. It was funny because they didn't know the plants names, so instead of calling Sunflower, "Sunflower", they called her Fred.

It was a really cute comic and the dr

I really liked the part where the kids were fighting the zombies.

I enjoyed this book because I like the game plants vs. zombies. I also enjoyed this book because I liked the part when crazy Dave made a sun machine that sprouts out suns super fast and made the plants super strong.

This was really boring. It couldn't keep my attention, so I DNF'd it.

I really expected more from PVZ than this.

I love Plants vs. Zombies, but this volume fell a bit flat for me. In Timepocalypse, the Zombies build a time machine and a sun vacuum. Meanwhile Crazy Dave happens to finish his time machine at the exact same time. The kids travel through space and time to recover parts from Zomboss' sun vacuum, in order to save the plants from extermination by the evil genius zombie.

I'm not asking for realism in something called Plants vs. Zombies - the fantasy aspect of it all is great fun. However I wouldn'

I knew going into this one I wasn't the target audience, but the whole Plants Vs. Zombies concept sounded kinda neat so I wanted to at least see what it was all about. It's a fun romp that I'm sure younger readers will love. Good art and jokes for the younger set. Not really for older readers unless you're really into the games, but if you are looking for some all ages fun you could do a lot worse than this. ...more

I think this book was EPIC because it was HILARIOUS and it had a good story. I also liked thi idea about the time portal. The only part that I didn't like was when it started raining fireballs for no reason. YEE ...more

I like the book because of its great story. I would recommend this to my fellow peers. the story is about 2 kids going through time to find machine parts to kill the zombies. I read this book when I was little and I still love it to this day. 10/10

A fantastic sequel

This is the sequel to the first book (PvZ(Plants vs. Zombies) lawnmageddon and this book my prayers were answered because it felt longer it’s really funny and I would suggest reading it if you are a fan of PvZ I hope Paul Tobin makes more.

More silly Plants vs Zombies fun... this time they travel back/forward in time to prevent a disaster. There's more of a story in this one compared to the first, though I wish there had been more of a kick to it. Still good if you're a fan of the series though. ...more

I got this to read to my grandson. He is absolutely obsessed with these books. The books are silly but kind of fun. Some of the humor is clever. I actually had fun reading it and it held my grandson's attention better than anything I've ever read with him ...more

Fans of the overabundance that is the Plants vs. Zombies franchise (the games, the slot machines, the stuffed animals, the planetary domination, etcetera, etcetera), here’s something else to add to your collection. The slow-witted zombies and adorably violent plants, along with some human companions, are back in action in their latest graphic adventure: Plants vs. Zombies: Timepocalypse.

In Timepocalypse, the evil Dr. Edgar Zomboss has finished the sun vacuum, a device that absorbs the sun and al

Read this with my 8-year-old, who struggles with reading, and absolutely loves this book. He's read it multiple times and finds new reasons to gush about it every single read. The artwork is excellent, and the story cracks you up and alternatively (and surprisingly) enlightens you in surprising ways. A great read!

Moving on to the rest of the series this week. :)

I was super surprised that a book based on an app could be so funny and engaging. The humor is totally wacky, with characters and situations that are riotously and ridiculously absurd. There is exactly one straight character in the series, Patrice, and everyone else in completely bonkers. I haven't this much fun or laughed this hard at a children's comic series in a looong time. ...more

Truth in advertising: I only read this because my 10-year-old son absolutely loved it and wanted me to read it.

It's exactly what you'd expect from a Plants VS. Zombies comic. Tons of action, bad puns, and weird plot twists. It's wacky, it's action packed, and it's silly. My son thought it was hilarious. I laughed once. But, I'm not the target audience, so take that for what it's worth.

This book was way better than I expected. My twin 2nd graders recommended it to me. I don't normally enjoy comic book novels, but this one was fun to read with the boys. Avoid it if you don't like zombies and/or killer plants. ...more

My eight year old really enjoyed this book. I did find myself giggling more than once and enjoyed it much more than I'm enjoying reading the Minecraft book that I'm currently reading to him at bed time. ...more
