Zombies are popular subjects for movies, television shows and books these days. Therefore, Project Z: A Zombie Ate My Homework is perfect for tween grands who want some fun zombie reading for the summer.
Norbus Clacknozzle escaped a secret government lab that’s developing zombies. Subsequently, he is rescued by the Kinders, a warmhearted couple who take him in. First the Kinders decide Arnold will become part of their family. Next, they help him disguise his undead appearance and coach him on how to answer questions about why he is so pale. He even gets a new name – Arnold Z. Ombee.
Is Arnold Z ready to fit in at school and enter fifth grade? Will he be discovered as a zombie and as a result be sent back to the Territory? Middle schoolers will enjoy following Arnold’s zombie adventures in a human world.
