Description

"An irreverent illustrated chapter book that features a ton of gore and zombie mayhem, but portrayed in such a cartoony, over-the-top style that it will make kids chuckle more than scream." (Brightly.com)

This is the first 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 sudden zombie epidemic has turned a sleepover at Zack Clarke's house into a level three creep-over! Zack's sister is now a zombie; his living dead, flesh-eating neighbors have wrecked his house; and he's been left to fend them off with his sister's snotty BFF, Madison. Luckily Zack's nerdy pal Rice has a plan to defeat the undead...if these three zombie chasers can make it out alive.

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

Review quote

"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 vomitous 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

Back cover copy

Zombie Attack!

When brain-gobbling zombies invade, a sleep-over at Zack Clarke's house quickly turns into a Level-3 creep-over. The undead have infested the streets, filling the air with deathly moans and the stench of rotting flesh.

Meet the Zombie Chasers:

Zack: His house is a wreck, his sister's a zombie, and he's stolen his mom's Volvo. He's totally going to be grounded if he survives the night. . . .

Rice: He's studied The Zombie Survival Guide, but is he prepared to fight the living dead?

Madison: She seriously cannot believe her best friend has become a zombie and left her alone with these dweebs!

They're on a mission to save the world, but first they have to survive their flesh-eating, half-dead neighbors--and one another. Can the Zombie Chasers make it out alive?

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.
