Book Description

New to the Random House list is author Bill Doyle with a tale of monsters, magic, and mayhem.

After Keats and Henry lose their bikes, they need money—fast. So the help-wanted ad at the supermarket seems ideal for them. All they have to do is weed Hallway House's garden, find some lightbulbs in the attic, sweep the garage . . . and battle a shark-headed zombie. But no one told them about the giant bookworms in the library, the toe-biting carpet in the halls, and the kitchen sinkhole!

From the Trade Paperback edition.

Editorial Reviews


"With enchanted scepters, wizard spells, disappearing chickens, and magical tornadoes, this book reads exactly like the wandering imagination of a creative youngster, offering up an absurd premise that will be a hit with boys in particular and reluctant readers in general. Accompanied by black-and-white illustrations showing the boys and the zombie in action, Doyle's reader-friendly and engaging story packs in a remarkable amount of action and fun."

5.0 out of 5 stars The non-reader reads! June 11, 2014
By C.A.K.
Format:Kindle Edition
Purchased this for my 8 year old who wanted to read it so badly that he ran in the door and read it straight through. He usually is a reluctant reader and this was on the summer reading list for reluctant readers so gave it a shot because who doesn't want to read about shark-headed zombies? He finished it and we downloaded the second one to his Fire and he promptly read that from start to finish as well. Meeting summer reading goals for the win!

This book really held my son's attention who absolutely hates reading. He actually finished it quicker than I expected him to.

FUNNY! Great reading it to my kids. They loved the farting bookworms and the shark-headed zombie getting stuck in the ceiling.

By kcm
this is a fun and suspenseful book with lots of new and creative ideas that kids will love - a combination of shark and zombie?! fantastic! really a cut above kids books that present the same old thing.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book hits all the right notes! August 2, 2011
By BD20009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this chapbook for my nephew, who is an avid reader. We took turns reading aloud -- not only did he enjoy reading it, and listening to it, my brother and sister-in-law were drawn in as we read it aloud. The book hits all the right notes -- very creative and rewards the reader for remembering the "clues" mentioned earlier. The relationship between the cousins was spot on, and the attention to detail and dialogue makes this a fun read for kids (and their parents and aunt)!
