Gr 3-7–What do zombies, teddy bears, and two children have in common? Much more than one would think when it comes to this story. This is a creepy tale filled with humorous characters and zany situations. Characters Lisa-Marie and Vernon are stepsiblings who find themselves in the strangest situation of their young lives. On Halloween, the siblings found a store that was giving away free teddy bears, complete with costumes and accessories. Little did Lisa-Marie and Vernon know, there was an evil plot behind these bears. What ensues is a tale of bravery, ingenuity, and determination as the main characters try to defeat the evil villains and save not only their neighborhood but the entire world. Who will win: the children or the zombie teddy bears? This is a quick and easy read, and Cosgrove provides humorous illustrations throughout.
