Memoirs of a Neurotic Zombie
Laugh-out-loud funny, Memoirs of a Neurotic Zombie is perfect for boys and girls, particularly reluctant readers, aged 9-10+. These hilarious adventure capers are all about friendship and being yourself, even if you’re undead.
‘My name is Adam Meltzer and the last thing I remember was being stung by a bee while swinging at a robot-shaped pinata on my twelfth birthday. I was dead before the candy hit the ground.’
Memoirs of a Neurotic Zombie is narrated by Adam Meltzer – pre-teen, worrywart, and now zombie. Adam’s family gets the fright of their lives when he turns up at their door . . . three months after his funeral. Soon Adam’s back at school trying to fit in and not draw extra attention to himself, but when he sees his neighbour Ernesto transform into a chupacubra, and the beautiful Corina (Adam’s number one mega-crush) turns out to be a (vegan) vampire, undead life is never going to be the same again.
Memoirs of a Neurotic Zombie: Escape from Camp
You’ll laugh until you die! Adam Meltzer, the world’s most neurotic teenager, who just happens to be a zombie, is back! After solving the mystery of the zombies, Adam and his friends Corina (a vegan vampire) and Ernesto (a reluctant chupacubra) head off to summer camp for a well-earned break from detective work. But the countryside in their hometown of Croxton is just as weird and wonderful and soon they are investigating something deadly dangerous in the deep, dark woods.
