Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Zack, an almost-eleven-year-old who is in fifth grade at a boys' school in New York City, has problems. His parents are divorced and he splits his time with each of them. It is when he is with his Dad that all of the weird stuff happens. Zack and his buddy Spencer decide to do a little ground work for an upcoming field trip to Washington, D.C. to see the Smithsonian's National Air and Space Museum. The only similar museum they can find in New York City is the (Washingtonians will love this) Orville and Fanny Schlectwasser Museum of Air and Space. Little did they know that the freeze dried food they bought at the gift shop was really a bunch of freeze dried spores that, when moistened in kitchen of Zack's dad's apartment, turn into a rude, hungry, growing blob intent on taking over the world! Kids will find funny, science fiction here with enough of the gross-out factor to keep them interested without the scariness. Parents or educators who are looking for a way to entice their children or students to read may want to try this series. It is a Reading Level 3 but could be read by an advanced first-grader or an older child resistant to reading. This book is the 29th in "The Zack Files" series. 2002, Grosset & Dunlap,
