    1. I received a free digital ARC of this book via NetGalley for reviewing purposes.Larry Mullet is a fourth grader who spends his time playing baseball, complaining about cafeteria food, not really reading or studying, and hanging out with his super-intelligent best friend, Jermaine. When he is attacked by a classmate, Larry doesn't know what to think because his parents don't let him watch horror movies, but Jermaine quickly surmises that there is a zombie apocalypse occurring - so Larry and his f [...]



    2. I received Zombie Elementary for Free via First Reads program in return for an honest review. When the book arrived I was in the middle of reading a High Fantasy, and was ready for a bit of fluff fun. Even though I didn’t realized the book was for middle school children (probably should have since the name is Zombie Elementary; although Zombies and young Children aren’t necessarily something you put together) I was pleasantly surprised at how enjoyable it was.This novel is a Comedy book tel [...]


    3. It all started when Alex Bates had three (yes, three!) helpings of the florescent green meatloaf at the school cafeteria. Not long afterwards, Alex Bates was a stumbling, wobbly-walking, blank-eyed zombie rambling through the town screaming."BRAINS!!!" Little by little, many of the townspeople of Acorn Falls were turning into zombies, too. How come the kids are the only ones who can see it? Yesults are clueless, but sheesh! Larry Mullet knows he has to do something, and fast, before the whole to [...]


    4. While being cute and easy to read for most kids, this story could have used a bit more zombie description than the redundancy of "BRAAAAIIINS" and "AAAAAARGNNNNNN" when it came to the actions of zombies. I did enjoy how the story was set up. Larry is doing a Tell All file to a buddy named Kyle about zombies coming to school, how they got rid of them, and how no adults really seemed to take notice. I enjoyed a character called Chucky and his Grandma since they were kooky and all hill billy. There [...]


    5. I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. This in no way influenced my review. Maybe it is just because I am an adult and this book was written for a middle grade audience, but I did not enjoy this book as much as I thought that I would. Overall, I found that the plot was simplistic and sometimes filled with unrealistic twists. The conclusion to the book left me unsatisfied. Although the book is written for a younger audience, it often had implied foul words; it used [...]


    6. I received a free kindle copy of Zombie Elementary by Howard Whitehouse, published by Random House of Canada, Tundra Books from NetGalley in exchange for a fair review. I gave it 3 1/2 stars. Or I would if I could. It was not a four but not a three. It was a little difficult to read because of the 'Interview-Responder' technique until I became accustomed to it. It's written for age level 9 to 12 & it seems suitable for that age group.It's about Larry Mullet who is called different names by a [...]


    7. Rating: 4.5/5 StarsIn this hilarious, zombie-filled comedy, fifth-grader Larry Mullet tells the story about how he and his friends fought back against the undead monsters that overran their town. Larry and his friends, unnoticed by any of their parents, battle their baseball-team-turned-zombies while trying to search for the source of the outbreak and destroy it. The book is filled with helpful “Zombie Tips” and is written to teach readers what to do if zombies come to their school! I thorou [...]


    8. If a Zombie outbreak begins in your school cafeteria, what do you do? Well, first off I’d call Larry Mullet. He survived the outbreak at Brooks Elementary and would be of great help. He, his sister and their friends give it their all and protect numerous adults from the brain-eaters. The book is a great tale for 5th grade and up through Middle School. The dialogue is perfect 5th grade, the parents typically ignoring the obvious to the kids. Baseball games? Zombies. Church? Zombies. Home? You g [...]


    9. The star of our story is Larry Mullet. He is in the fourth grade and life is about to get very interesting for him. All around Larry people are beginning to become zombies. This includes folks at school, on his little league baseball team, and all over town. Larry and his friends must defend themselves and search for a way to stop this outbreak.Howard Whitehouse does an amazing job telling the story with humor and the perfect pace (and just the right amount of grossness) to keep the attention of [...]


    10. Electronic galley provided by publisher and NetGalley.Zombie novel for kids. Some dismemberment and zombie annihilation, but everybody apparently gets cured and comes back to life in the end. Zombie Elementary has highly unbelievable action, over-the-top characters (think Chuckyessentially and Granny), and out of left field plot elements (BURP to the rescue). The actual story, zombie tips, and interview interjections just didn't come together. Sorry. Didn't particularly like it.


    11. This tween zombie story was a quick read and while it won't be a favorite of older, hardcore zombie fans it WILL be well loved by elementary and young middle school readers just getting their feet wet in the introductory splash zone of the zombie apocalypse. It's more Diary of a Wimpy Kid than The Walking Dead, to be sure. I will be adding this book to my grades 5-9 library and I expect it to have heavy circulation among the younger grades.


    12. This was a hit with my 7 year old and my 8 year old. They have read it two times each! I am hoping this is just the beginning! If you want a book that your kids will love - look no further. It is great to see your kids reading, but to see them reading and hear them laughing while they do, well that is priceless! I was given this book in exchange for an honest review.


    13. It’s a clever and an exiting adventure. I llloooooooooooovvvvveedd the “zombie tips!” My favorite part was when the teacher smears blood all over the window saying “nnaaarrrrgggghhhh!” And “Bbbrrrraaaaaiiiiiinnnnnssss!” I like the little interviews. This book is great for boys, such as my brother, and girls like me.


    14. While I'm not the biggest fan of the Zombie genre, this was a quick and fun introduction into the world of zombie fighting. As I read it as an ARC I'll wait to post my full opinion. I'll post a full review later. :)


    15. Kyle interviews Larry about what really happened during the secret zombie outbreak.Told with a caring yet lighthearted feel, readers are led step by step through this infestation.Overall, a fun and somewhat whimsical read.


    16. Fun for young ones, the main character Larry is so frank about the whole zombie thing it had me laughing a lot! A great read for kiddos and the like who enjoy some adventure and humor. My only main "warning" is that some parents may not like the level of snark that happens in the book.




    17. Really fun bookrfect for reluctant readerson a topic that interests them, but told in an age-appropriate manner
