PRAISE FOR Zombie Elementary:
"[A] fast-paced tale that will draw in reluctant readers. A solid purchase for rabid zombie fans and a good pick for collections lacking in the funny horror genre." --School Library Journal
"Zombie catchers: take notes. This book is packed with zombie tips, including what to expect during a zombie outbreak (answer: denial, then 'sheer, babbling terror') and who makes the best zombie catchers (answer: bossy people). Follow fifth grader Larry Mullet as he investigates the odd happenings at Brooks Elementary in what may be the creepiest case file you'll ever read." --TIME for Kids
"Hilariously told interview-style as a record of the real story, readers will learn a lot about zombies... This book is splattered with life-or-death comedy." --City Parent
