The third book in the heavily illustrated Zombie Chasers series by John Kloepfer. This fan-favorite is perfect for reluctant readers as well as fans of Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Dork Diaries.

A zombie outbreak is spreading fast across America, but seventh-grader Zack Clarke; his best pal Rice; his older sister Zoe; middle school queen bee Madison Miller; and Ozzie, the newest Zombie Chaser, have a plan to end this nightmare once and for all.

They've figured out the cure to the zombie virus and now they're off on a wild zombie road trip from the heartlands to the badlands to defeat the evil genius behind the living dead apocalypse. Can they make it there in time or will Sludgment Day be the dawn of the dead?

Featuring John Kloepfer's signature hilarious and gory descriptions, and Steve Wolfhard's hysterical black and white interior illustrations, Sludgment Day is an uproarious, gore-streaked addition to the ever-popular Zombie Chasers series!

Review quote

Praise for THE ZOMBIE CHASERS: "What makes this latest entry into the developing middle-grade zombie canon stand out is Kloepfer's gleeful insistence on gore and Wolfhard's squiggly drawings that really bring the laughs. Stick around for the next vomitus volume." -- ALA Booklist "Kloepfer's first is a Zombieland for the middle-school set: funny, off-color and extremely gross. A great pick for the child who thought Diary of a Wimpy Kid just needed more motile corpses." -- Kirkus Reviews "A quick, fun read, loaded with jokes and middle-school sarcasm." -- School Library Journal "If there's an award for the grossest descriptions of zombies, Kloepfer would win it. Preteen boys will love it." -- St. Paul Pioneer Press Praise for UNDEAD AHEAD: "Written with tongue firmly in cheek-and other body parts all over the landscape-this book will appeal to reluctant readers, particularly middle school boys." -- School Library Journal

About John Kloepfer

John Kloepfer began his writing -career at five years old with a one-sentence short story: "And then one day the monsters came." The Zombie Chasers is his first novel. He lives in New York City, where he is hard at work on the next adventure of Zack, Rice, and Madison. Steve Wolfhard was born in Ontario, Canada, and has been drawing comics since he graduated from animation college. Steve has a fat barn cat named Haircut, whom he loves but does not like. The first zombie movie Steve ever saw was Return of the Living Dead, and it still scares the crud out of him.
