In this follow-up to Weird Stuff (Walker, 2006), Brian Hobble's favorite book series, "Zombie Squad," has been adapted for TV. While he enjoys the show, he wonders why the producers have the Squad simply kickboxing their way out of any zombie-related trouble rather than using the humorous and creative methods of the author, Lancelot Cummins. Still in contact with Lance, who visited Brian's school in the earlier title, the boy describes the even more distressing effect the program is having on his brother, Matthew. The kindergartner is convinced that the show is real and begins trying to fight those he thinks are really zombies. Brian knows he must help his brother face reality, all the while dealing with the embarrassment of being cast as "The Kid Who Sucks" in a commercial for a new juice drink. His reaction to the changes made to his favorite books is refreshing and may cause some readers to wonder at the reason for changes when books are adapted for the television or movie screen. The accompanying sketches, with many of them on paper torn from a notebook and identified as the work of "B. Hobble," are humorous. This sequel isn't as imaginative as the first title, but it is likely to find an audience.

[A] nonstop romp, which is strewn with faux-crude ink drawings done on torn loose-leaf (plus a set of small flip-page images), is perfectly tuned to its intended middle-grade audience. --Kirkus Reviews
