The Zombie Chasers

Summary:

Zombies aren't real, right? Zack Clarke is on his way home expecting a "normal" Friday night. Boy, was he wrong! The zombies have taken over Phoenix, Arizona. Now it is up to Zack Clarke, his best friend Rice, and his older sister Zoe's mean friend Madison Miller to defeat the undead. That is, if they don't kill each other first!


Reader Enjoyment Factors:

Lots of action and 'yucks' grab readers from the get-go.

Content Awareness Factors:

None, really.


Young Reader Reaction

The first thing our reader did was check out all the illustrations - the more undead, the better. She abandoned this book about half-way, but then came back to it after reading book 3, Sludgement Day.

Parent Reaction

The story paints a very vivid picture that grabs readers' and listeners' attention. The author strikes the upper-elementary funny bone spot on, and we had many "mom, listen to this ..." moments while our daughter read.

Type of Book:
This is a lightly illustrated chapter book for preteens.
Educational Themes:

If you r-e-a-l-l-y stretch it, there are some lessons in friendship and tolerance. Mostly, though, this is a book for fun reading.

Recommended Age To Read By Yourself:

Recommended Age To Read Together:

Age of child:
Read by an 11-year-old girl.
Purchase Recommendation:
