Fourth-grader Stanley Nudelman is about as wimpy as they come--he's cowardly, shy, and spends most of his time hiding from the school bully, Knuckles Bruzkowski! Then Stanley stumbles upon the yard sale of his neighbor, Old Lady Imavitch, where he buys a mysterious stuffed animal. But this isn't any old toy . . . it's Zombiekins! He's a little bit teddy, a little bit bunny, and a whole lotta ZOMBIE! And he's coming this way!

Stump!--scri-i-i-i-itch . . .

Stump!--scri-i-i-i-itch . . .

Stanley brings Zombiekins to school and unleashes the worst zombie plague in fourth grade history! Can Stanley find the courage to save the day before his teachers notice the class is full of zombies? Or will he soon join the ranks of the snuggily UNDEAD?

this book is awesome

Solid boy appeal with the zombie aspects. A bit long, but is actually relatively light reading for children. Has many humourous touches that parents will enjoy as well (or teachers who are looking for a funny book to read out loud to their classes).

good read alike for the Captain Underpants crowd. Lots of clever puns to keep the read along interesting.

Seeing people turn into zombies was awesome.

No one in the town of Dementedyville ever goes near Old Lady Imavitch's house, until the day there is a garage sale. Then the town can't wait to buy her stuff. Against his better judgment, Stanley decides to buy the beat-up teddy bear with the bunny ear, a dangly eye and claws. And instead of listening to the warning of the creepy old lady, Stanley trows out the box with the instructions and takes the stuffed animal home.

Stanley awakes to a scene of horror in the playroom. All the other stuffed animals have been vivesectioned. Only Zmbiekins was spared. Thinking it was the dog's fault, Stanley takes they toy to school. Soon his school mates are turning into zombies. Can Stanley find the cure in time?

A funny, fresh, and surprisingly age appropriate, take on zombies from Ottawa author and teacher, Kevin Bolger. This will appeal to the junior boy with it's gross out humour and cartoon illustrations. There are times that Bolger is not writing for the young, but rather the parents who might read the book to their children. Fun stuff.
