Y In this sequel to the book "Weird Stuff," we find Brian saddled with the after-school care of his 5-year-old brother, Matthew. That's not cool because now he can't hang out with the girl he likes or watch the new zombie hunter television show that's based on his favorite book by Lance Cummings. Well, he ends up watching the show with his brother anyway. This turns out to be a bad idea because now his brother is imitating a zombie hunter by attacking "real" zombies in the kick-boxing style of the television show. Brian realizes this is a problem and tries to stop his brother's behavior. This story is filled with funny scenes involving fairies and zombies, which would be amusing to younger tween readers. Brian's negative reaction to the violence in the zombie television show and his growing friendship with another five-year-old who insists on dressing like a fairy is enlightening. Towards the end of the book Brian becomes a good role model for the caring older brother. The story is also illustrated with comic drawings drawn so they appeared taped into the book and each chapter is a vocabulary lesson with a definition for a new word.
