Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
When Trevor's friends choose to solve math problems and study history instead of playing video games and eating junk food, he knows that something is wrong. "Must study! Must study!" they chant. Trevor quickly discovers the truth about his substitute teacher: that he is really a mad scientist who has turned the students into homework-loving zombies and wants to take over the world. Trevor then faces the challenge of saving everyone from this terrible fate. Part fantasy and part science fiction, Nickel's picture book uses a comic book style approach to gain the interest of struggling and reluctant readers. Complete with balloons and bubbles for dialogue instead of conventional paragraphs and lots of colorful cartoon-like illustrations, it is sure to win over its intended audience. A glossary defining some of the more complex terms, such as zombie and substitute, are included and is written in a fun and casual tone. There is also a section giving a background on zombies, as well as discussion questions and writing prompts. 2006, Stone Arch Books, Ages 8 to 12.

Born in 1962 in Denver, Colorado, Scott Nickel works by day at Paws, inc., Jim Davis's famous Garfield studio, and he freelances by night. Burning the midnight oil, Scott has created hundreds of humorous greeting cards and written several children's books, short fiction for "Boys' Life" magazine, comic strips, and lots of really funny knock-knock jokes. He was raised in southern California, but in 1995 Scott moved to Indiana, where he currently lives with his wife, two sons, six cats, and several sea monkeys.

Steve Harpster has loved to draw funny cartoons, mean monsters, and goofy gadgets since he was able to pick up a pencil. In first grade, he avoided writing assignments by working on the pictures for stories instead. Steve was able to land a job drawing funny pictures for books, and that's really what he's best at. Steve lives in Columbus, Ohio, with his wonderful wife, Karen, and their sheepdog, Doodle.
