9780898128086: That's Spooky: Zombies

Hungry werewolves. Spell-casting witches. Moaning mummies. That's Spooky! offers young readers a fun and colorful introduction to the world of monsters, magic, and the unexplained. This series spotlights six spooky creatures, investigating their behaviors, powers, weaknesses, and characteristic physical traits, as well as how they have become part of pop culture. Simple but lively writing is paired with hair-raising photos within an atmospheric design to capture all the thrills these creatures of the night have to offer!

From School Library Journal:

Gr 1-3-These image-heavy guides to monsters of myths and legends strike a delightful balance between creepy and cheesy. Large stills from movies and stock photographs are paired with pages of information on abilities and characteristics of these scary subjects. Each title gives a solid overview, with text that provides wide coverage in a short amount of space. The visuals are intriguing and grotesque but not too terrifying. Amusing features include a page that instructs readers in how to spot each creature (the vampire, for example, has notable "red eyes," "pointy teeth," "black cape," "pale skin," and "leftover blood" lingering on the corner of his mouth) and a guide to acting and/or dressing as a ghost, mummy, etc. Though the books lack consistency (historical significance is discussed for mummies, for example, but not for witches), overall they are satisfying additions, especially around Halloween. α(c) Copyright 2011.

From Booklist:

What good is an education if you don’t learn about the imminent threat of zombies? This high-interest, low-reading-level entry into the That’s Spooky! series introduces the very basics: how to spot one (zombies look dirty and bloody), how you become one (a curse or virus), how a zombie behaves (it especially wants brains!), and other gleaned-from-movies tips. No nod to any historical basis is supplied, though there is mention of the film Night of the Living Dead and Michael Jackson’s Thriller. Frisch puts the important part—they’re not real!—at the back, like a shocker ending. Movie stills and actors in heavy makeup give this just the right putrid pizazz, and the final spread, Learn to Spot a Zombie, will provide the requisite ghoulish chuckles. Grades 1-4. --Daniel Kraus
