The little town of Dementedyville is as boring as they come–but a mysterious stuffed animal is about to liven things up . . .
Stanley Nudelman buys Zombiekins at the yard sale of his neighbor, the Widow Imavitch. It looks cuddly and creepy-cute–but expose the TEDDY OF TERROR to moonlight, and strange things happen. . . .
When Zombiekins gets loose at his school, Stanley finds himself in GRAVE danger. Because if his teacher Mr. Baldengrumpy discovers he turned the whole school into zombies, Stanley will be in detention till he’s, like, 80!
Can Stanley and his best friend Miranda save their schoolmates from eternal zombiefication? If not, will Mr. Baldengrumpy even notice?
Yes, I know this book is more for the younger teens, but isn’t that cover so freaky that it is cute? If only I had a stuffed animal that looked like that when I was growing up to freak my brother out with!
This was one of those quick books to read, that you would not normally read, but found yourself sucked into it because it is written so cute! I loved the plot, and the characters, but the best by far was the illustrations that accompany the story. I could easily seeing the younger generation wanting to read this book because they want a paranormal-like book to read too. This was quirky and would fit perfectly for the younger ages whether they are a boy or a girl.
Overall, if I was a tween again, I would definitely be asking my parents to buy it for me!
Very Good! I would recommend this book! 4 STARS
