The illustrations in this slightly freaky, very adorable, little gem of a book are engaging, (and easy to understand), and are plentiful without being over done on each page.
The puns are witty, the word play is clever. It's 'simple' enough to read aloud to my 4 and 6 year old, but 'grown up' enough that the little nuances crack me up.
I can see an independent reader with a thing for things ghoulish happily 'tearing' through this book!
Because he is male, Stanley throws away the directions for the doll without ever reading them. This, in turn, soon leads to the zombification of almost the entire school. Stanley and his good friend Miranda are left to deal with the consequences. In doing so, Stanley finds courage he never knew he had.
Though simple to read, the text is filled with puns, word play, and tongue-in-cheek humor. There's even the occasional exciting vocabulary word (i.e. revivified) thrown in to please the English teacher in me. The illustrations sometimes contradict the text in amusing ways. For instance, the opening of chapter four says Stanley is doing his homework, and we see him in the middle of his bedroom floor exerting himself at a videogame while his cobweb-covered schoolbooks sit unopened.
This is a book that your boys will love. It is quick to read, clever, and very silly. I find it far more entertaining than the popular "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" series.
With that being said, I cannot wait to begin to share these stories with my kids when they are older and able to read more than their names. Additionally, there looks like an excellent website is in the making which I will have bookmarked on my computer as soon as I get it back up and running. Here is a link

I really like this book because it's funny a lot of times and the teddy bear is a zombie that is price less. Another reason I like book is it's stupid and random and I love stupid stuff.
So if you like zombie bears that come to live this is the book for you. Happy Reading
