The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and the Undead
Mark Twain once said "The rumors of my death were greatly exaggera--BRAINS!!!!!"Pulled from the undead grip of Mark Twain's rotting zombie hands, this is Tom Sawyer like you've never seen him before, in a swashbuckling, treasure-seeking tale spiked with blood, gore, and zombie madness. In this expanded and illustrated edition of Mark Twain's beloved tale of boyhood adventure, Tom's usual mishaps are filled with the macabre. In a world where a zombie virus turns people into something folks call "Zum," the United States is infested with a plague of decaying-yet-spry Zum, searching for fresh meat.When vicious, self-aware zombies evolve and threaten the town . . . what will Tom and Huck do to protect their loved ones, and will they live to tell the tale?With all the comedy, romance, and rousing adventure that readers expect from Mark Twain, Tom Sawyer becomes a new kind of hero--a grade-A zombie hunter.
