Marvelous Middle Grade Monday - My Zombie Dog

Marvelous Middle Grade Monday

Shannon Whitney Messenger decided it was time to give middle grade stories the attention they deserve, and "Marvelous Middle Grade Mondays" was born. 
  
My Zombie Dog
by Charmaine Clancy
Goodreads Blurb:
Zane had the worst birthday ever. He spent it arguing with his Mum and burying a dead dog. Things just get worse. The next day Zane wakes to find the dog in his room, covered in dirt and… wagging its tail.

This is not Zane’s idea of the perfect dog. It’s shaggy, smells undead and bites people. And why does its victims all turn sluggish and keep asking for brains?

Can Zane can find the solution to save his neighbourhood from a zombie plague?
This book is adorable! The storyline is fun, the characters are lovable, the zombie dog is totally cool. My daughter read this book before me and loved it. She could hardly put it down, and when she was finished with it, she went back to the beginning and started again. Two weeks later, she is still talking about it. For an original take on zombies and fun, don't miss this one!




** Others who can be counted on for MMGM: **

 Happy Monday!

OmGOSH! This sounds amazing! Thanks for sharing about it because it's another I haven't heard about (do I say that every Monday to you? But you pick ones I don't know about, which is the purpose of it all, right?)

How nice to know your daughter enjoyed it. I've been hearing about Charmaine's progress working on the book on Facebook.

love it. I'm not a fan of zombie fiction, but I'd read this one. I can totally see why kids would love it.

I'm a follower of Charmaine's blog. I really like the book cover of My Zombie Dog. I haven't had a chance to read the book yet, but will start on it after the A to Z challenge is over.
