Zombie Attack!

When brain-gobbling zombies invade, a sleep­over at Zack Clarke's house quickly turns into a Level-3 creep-over. The undead have infested the streets, filling the air with deathly moans and the stench of rotting flesh.

Meet the Zombie Chasers:

Zack: His house is a wreck, his sister's a zombie, and he's stolen his mom's Volvo. He's totally going to be grounded if he survives the night. . . .

Rice: He's studied The Zombie Survival Guide, but is he prepared to fight the living dead?

Madison: She seriously cannot believe her best friend has become a zombie and left her alone with these dweebs!

They're on a mission to save the world, but first they have to survive their flesh-eating, half-dead neighbors—and one another. Can the Zombie Chasers make it out alive?

Editorial Reviews

ALA Booklist
“What makes this latest entry into the developing middle-grade zombie canon stand out is Kloepfer’s gleeful insistence on gore and Wolfhard’s squiggly drawings that really bring the laughs. Stick around for the next vomitous volume.”
Children's Literature - Paula Rohrlick
When Zack arrives home one Friday evening, he is dreading only the usual obnoxious shenanigans from his older sister Zoe and her eighth-grade friends at their sleepover. After all, no one ever expects their neighborhood to become suddenly zombified, but suddenly Zack, his best friend Rice, and his sister's friend Madison find themselves fighting off the lumbering, moldering undead and running for their lives. Even Zoe has been turned into a zombie, but they bring her along, carefully trussed up so she can not bite them, as they attempt to flee from Phoenix to the Tucson Air Force Base, as the President advises. They take the family Volvo and inexpertly head down the road, battling zombies and picking up Madison's classmate, hunky but dim and cowardly Greg, along the way. Rice's hunches that ginkgo biloba is an antidote for zombism, and that a new fast-food chain called BurgerDog is responsible for the zombie outbreak, seem to be correct, but their troubles are far from over; a sequel, Undead Ahead, promises further adventures. Full of details of popped-out eyeballs, spilling intestines, and missing limbs, which are carefully rendered in cartoon-like black-and-white line drawings, this gruesome tale is played for laughs. There is lots of sniping and squabbling between the characters, whose main emotional reaction to the zombies around them seems to be more "ew" than terror. Zombies have been popular lately, and the high "ick" factor of this offering will hold appeal for upper elementary students who enjoy being grossed out. Reviewer: Paula Rohrlick
School Library Journal
Gr 5–7—Seventh-grader Zack Clarke's suburban Phoenix neighborhood seems normal—until almost everyone mysteriously transforms into a zombie. Zack, his geeky friend Rice, and his eighth-grade sister Zoe's glamorous but snarky friend Madison are seemingly the only ones unaffected. That means that all the zombies in the neighborhood—including Zoe—are determined to devour them. They need to defend themselves but can only find a plastic baseball bat and a fire extinguisher. Meanwhile, Zack and Zoe's parents are at a parent-teacher night at their school—do they even know what's going on? This first volume in a new series leaves readers hanging at the end, but it's a quick, fun read, loaded with jokes and middle-school sarcasm. Kloepfer's descriptions of the zombies and their feeding habits, and Wolfhard's cartoon characters with guts and drool hanging out, are not for the faint of heart (or weak of stomach).—Walter Minkel, Austin Public Library, TX

Meet the Author

John Kloepfer began his writing career at five years old with a one-sentence short story: "And then one day the monsters came." He lives in New York City, where he is preparing for a massive zombie invasion.

Steve Wolfhard lives in Toronto, Canada, with a fat cat named Haircut. The first zombie movie Steve ever saw was Return of the Living Dead, and it still scares the crud out of him.

    Its Your Dream Date!

    If you like zombies and gross details this book is your dream date! (No kidding). Read all the novels and get caught up with Zack and his gang of zombie slayers.

    P.S. It's worth the money! Good luck trying to get it! :-)
