Funny, light-hearted monster stories that are perfect for young readers, brought to us by the esteemed Dr. Roach.

Judd Crank and his friend Zak are two ordinary boys, in an ordinary town, with some very ordinary goldfish. Judd never thought much about his pet fish, besides sometimes needing to feed them.

But when a science experiment accidentally gets mixed in with their food, these regular pets start becoming a lot more interesting. With a series of bubbles and pops, the slimy fish start growing and changing. Then they step right out of their tank — and begin marching towards town.

Teri Crosby, August 18, 2012 (view all comments by Teri Crosby)
Have you ever wondered what happened to your goldfish is they have ever disappeared. It is not to the shiny porcelain bowl that they disappear into with Dr. Roach’s latest book of Monstrous Stories with the release of Night Of The Zombie Goldfish, no it is more than that when the remains of a science experiment fall into a jar of goldfish food in the Crank family.

Judd Crank thought that his science experiment had failed when it exploded and he dropped the experiment into the closest container he could find, which sadly ended up being the very goldfish food that he normally feeds to his large tank full of goldfish. Now under normal circumstances these would have been your normal run of the mill store bought goldfish, but with the introduction of young Judd’s experiment altered flakes something terrible happens in the Judd house, in fact many terrible things are unleashed as a tank of giant mutant zombie goldfish break out and wreak havoc amongst this small town of Carp Creek.
Imagine the surprise of a whole school of angry mutant zombie giant goldfish running amuck in your streets, and the reaction of your parents as these very same fish are breaking down doors and parading down your neighborhood. Judd is in for a whole heap of trouble unless he can solve the mystery and also contain his once tiny quiet pets.

The adventure of Judd Crank and his goldfish are a taller tale than many have seen nor heard in a while in this small fishing hamlet and with so many fish centered storefronts and restaurants the next thing that may be on the menu is not your fresh caught fish but your neighbor or their dog. As Judd desperately breaks into his chemistry set to find a remedy to this experiment turned nightmare will he solve the mystery of his missing goldfish and save everyone? Will Judd ever see his tiny scaly friends again, or be terrorized by giant scaly fiends for the rest of his days instead? Find out in this latest release of Dr. Roach’s Monstrous Stories to see if you are brave and fast enough to solve this mysterious mystery and missing pet case.
