Synopses & Reviews
The camping trip in Arizona's White Mountains is Skeeter McGill's first as patrol leader, and with the big Jamboree coming up, he has a lot riding on his success. So when things start to go wrong — the scout leaders bringing the food get lost, rain douses the campers' spirits and fires — Skeeter's debut looks like a major dud. And, just when he thinks things can't get any worse, they do. Some of the scouts find an old cabin in the woods, and near it a mysterious sealed crate. When it's opened, zombie monkeys from beyond the grave are unleashed, and Skeeter's bad night goes into overdrive!
Like the Harry Potter, Spiderwick, and Buffy series, this gripping fantasy portrays a world where ordinary people face extraordinary circumstances, and vividly depicts the challenge of accepting power and learning to use it wisely.
Skeeter is excited to show his leadership abilities during a Wild West Scout campout, but when a big storm washes away the fire, the food is lost, and the scouts release a horde of zombie monkey monsters, he may be in over his head.
