i bought this book for my niece because my sister reads to her every night and she has gotten bored with all the normal kid books . She really seems to lean toward the scarier kids movies so i thought she would like this . they only read a few chapters a night because she is only 5. She absolutely loves this book, She is constantly telling me about it! she is not very scared about it. ive read a few chapters its pretty cute and funny . I'm so glad i bought it!
You know a zombie book for kids is good when your four year old asks for "just one more chapter" instead of taking the option of watching a cartoon. The illustrations in this slightly freaky, very adorable, little gem of a book are engaging, (and easy to understand), and are plentiful without being over done on each page. The puns are witty, the word play is clever. It's 'simple' enough to read aloud to my 4 and 6 year old, but 'grown up' enough that the little nuances crack me up. I can see an independent reader with a thing for things ghoulish happily 'tearing' through this book!
