Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Zack is about to start at his new school, and his dad, who went there years before, tells Zack the stories of the haunted janitor’s closet, the specter of a dead crossing guard, and the Donnelly brothers, who perished in a suspicious fire. Dad doesn’t know that Zack has already met the Donnellys’ ghosts, who have warned Zack that there is an evil zombie under the school. Zack also learns that while zombies are usually content eating corpses, if they happen to bite someone who isn’t dead, that person also becomes a zombie.

Before midterms, Zack is dealing with two zombies, while trying to protect a friend whose curiosity has put him on the zombies’ menu. 

Once again Chris Grabenstein proves his mastery of frightening and funny tales. Young readers, especially reluctant ones, have found inspiration in his quirky characters and deadly situations.

Synopsis:

Zack is about to start at his new school, and his dad, who went there years before, tells Zack all of the stories of the haunted janitor's closet, the spectre of a dead crossing guard, and the Donnelly brothers, who perished in a fire.

About the Author

Chris Grabenstein is the Anthony award-winning author of Tilt a Whirl, Mad Mouse, and Whack a Mole. Apparently, he spends far too much time at amusement parks. Tip learned the hard way: never eat six hot dogs prior to riding a roller coaster. He also written the thrillers: Slay Ride and Hell for the Holidays. He used to write TV and radio commercials and has written for the Muppets.

Chris was born in Buffalo, New York and moved to Chattanooga, Tennessee when he was ten. After college, he moved to New York City with six suitcases and a typewriter to become an actor and writer. For five years, he did improvisational comedy in a Greenwich Village theatre with some of  the city's funniest performers, including this one guy named Bruce Willis.

Currently, Chris and his wife JJ live in New York City with three cats and a dog named Fred who starred in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang on Broadway. You can visit Chris (and Fred) at www.ChrisGrabenstein.com
