Review quotes

A kooky, zany little story about a boy and his pet zombie goldfish, Frankie. The kids in my library are already clamoring for this book and I can't get it ready for the shelves soon enough for them. Keep up the good work "Wendy A. Emlinger, on"

I saw this book on sale at Walmart, and I couldn't resist picking it up. The cover just popped out at me. It's a good sized book for young readers. I read it in one sitting, and I loved it! "Angela Roquet on"

The book is packed with bonkers humour ... Anyone who likes books by Dav Pilkey would seriously love this book. "Biteso, for""
