This review is from: Zombie Monkey Monster Jamboree (Hardcover)
Maurice "Skeeter" McGill had been named Patrol Leader for the Wild West Scouts' Basilisk Patrol the previous May. Now that it's summer and time for their first campout, Skeeter is determined that things will go off without a hitch. He's studied maps of Arizona's White Mountains, double-checked his backpack to make sure he's brought everything he could possibly need, and memorized every step between their starting point and where the Scouts will make camp.
There's one thing, though, that Skeeter didn't count on when he was planning this campout. Actually, two things. The first would be that the two parent Scout Leaders accompanying them, Glenn Caldwell and Paul Steiner, would end up getting lost and separated from the boys. Separated, with the only food for the trip. The second would be the Scouts' discovery of a golden monkey idol found inside a crate in an old abandoned cabin in the woods.
For the Scouts--Skeeter, Sam, Mustafa, Kyle, Josh, Lane, Hari, and Gas--ignoring the warning of removing the idol proves to be a very, very bad idea. When the camp is overrun by zombie monkeys, the boys know that it's up to them, as loyal Basilisk Patrol Scouts, to warn the nearby town of Apache Wells of the monsters that are on the loose. Not to mention that they need to find a way, and fast, to stop the curse.
ZOMBIE MONKEY MONSTER JAMBOREE is another entertaining story from Actionopolis. If you like a dash of humor with your horror, this is definitely the book for you. Sure to appeal to pre-teens and older reluctant readers, not to mention fans of comics and great art, you won't go wrong with a copy of J.J. Hart's addition to the line.
