MY REVIEW

Another adventure out into the world with the Moore family as they head to their grandmother's house for dinner. This is the second book I have read in this zombie series, and again, it was a good read. I loved the illustrations and the fun activities the family partook in as they tried to acclimate to the world of the living. Again, the author explores some important themes and messages such as acceptance and learning how to deal with prejudices and how to appreciate different cultures. Like the first book I read, I still have a problem with the narration. I felt disconnected from the characters, thus I couldn't connect with them on an emotional level.

Overall, it was a good read with a good message.

MY REVIEW

It has taken a while, but I'm finally starting to get into these Moore Zombies books, and I must say this one is by far my favourite one. It's full of fun and adventure, what the series has been promising ever since I came across it, and it finally feels as though the real fun has arrived. In this adventure, the Moore kids visit Zombie World, a place where they finally fit in and don't have to worry about being detected by humans. As the Moore kids go about helping out with the attractions, it soon becomes apparent that peoples items are going missing. Who is to blame? That's what the Moore kids plan to find out.

This book was enjoyable and full of intrigue. As this was a chapter book, there were only a few illustrations, at the start of each chapter, which was different to the previous two books I read. Strangely, I enjoyed it moore (pun intended) without the illustrations as it allowed me to focus on the story and allowed me to visualise the story more. I finally felt a connection with the characters, which, although long awaited, was so worth it.

I thoroughly enjoyed the mention of Dracula and Frankenstein. Although I was aware of the backstory, it was pleasant to read. It's a good addition for kids to learn about the classics that have helped shape the world of monsters as we know it today.
