Very strange things happen to the kids of Bailey Elementary School. If it's not weird enough to have a VAMPIRE for a teacher, then what about having a ZOMBIE for a soccer coach??
In this 15th installment of the Bailey School Kids series, the gang is gearing up for a soccer tournament against their ol' school rivals. Like other sports they play, the Bailey kids just aren't doing well at all. That is, until Coach Graves shows up and puts `em through the motions!!
Coach Graves has that combination of motivation, organization and sheer power that all fine teams have. Though she drills them through some tough practices, has them exercise until the gang thinks their legs will fall off and the whole team shows up for practice reeking of muscle-relaxant cream, with her as the coach, the Bailey team might have a fighting chance!!
That is, until one day when a mysterious old woman comes to practice, gets into a heated argument with Coach, and suddenly the Coach Graves, who has always been in constant motion, just sits on the bench staring out into space. Good grief! Has Coach been turned into a ZOMBIE?!
I've reviewed a number of the Bailey Kids books, and believe them to be good choices for intermediate readers. They're short, the language is easy, the type is large and easy to read (I'd say about 14-16 point), and the plot is logical and flows. As a teacher, I often use these books to hook in reluctant readers who don't normally read for pleasure, but who also might be too spooked by the Goosebumps series by Stine.
As of this writing, there are some 40 books to the series, each involving some mysterious creature, anything from vampires to aliens to mermaids. It isn't necessary to read the series in order, though some characters make repeat appearances in other books.

Hi!I'm introducing you to the book called Zombies don't play Soccer. It is very interesting. Most of the kids on Melody's soccer team think that melody is the best player. Ok all of them do.Liza, Eddie, Melody, and Howie think that their new soccer coach is a zomby. You'll have to read and find out if there soccer coach is a zomby, or not. I really like the book zombies don't play soccer because I like playing soccer a lot.

Format: Paperback
I recommend this book Zombies Don't Play Soccer because it is funny because the carters tell rally funny jokes. It felt like I was in this book when I reed it. The carters in this book where believable because they said stuff that us humans would say in real life like nock that off, be quite , and they made excuses like I did not do it, it was his fault, my dog ate my home work.

I think the theme made this book a good book because the kids in this story thought they made the zombie but they didn't so they tried to change the zombie to a real person again they tried every thins but it didn't work. They also touted them self's how to play soccer and they won their first game.

The carters made this book a good book because they hade a big since of humor cause they told funny jokes. They where believable because they did stuff that we would do like be happy at the end of the School. And be made at school work.

The setting was so good I felt like I was there and the things they did I could never teach my self scorer and tack on a zombies. It took place at a soccer field. It was a fun but bad setting.

I recommend this book to people that like to read about Zombies. It is an easy book to read. You can learn more about soccer while still getting a good story at the same time.

This book is an early series of chapter books. They are high interest and good for getting young readers into chapter books. I teach ESOL students and I think the kids will enjoy this series.

Probably the kids who like the Goosebumps series would like this book better than other kids. I've read better books and its kind of easy for me. But I still like it.
