Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kirsten Shaw
In this title from the "Monster Wars" series, zombies face mummies in a battle of the undead. O'Hearn uses the strengths and weaknesses of each monster to determine which would win in a battle to the "second" death. Special powers, intelligence, speed, and weaknesses are all compared and rated as it leads up to the final, hypothetical battle. Each chapter contains pictures of scenes from an array of zombie and mummy movies, with Moffett illustrating the gruesome and creepy fight. Not lacking in educational facts, readers will learn details about zombies and mummies, including the Egyptian mummification process. Each chapter features frightful facts and vocabulary definitions, and the last pages include a glossary in addition to a directory leading readers to suggested resources to learn more. This is a great read that is sure to catch the attention of reluctant readers who will appreciate the action and creativity in this supernatural match up. Reviewer: Kirsten Shaw
