Summer Reading 2019 A Small Zombie Problem


It's bad enough to lose your parents at a very young age and wind up living with your rather odd Aunt Hydrangea. Added to that, she always dresses as if she is participating in a beauty pageant, she is terrified of butterflies, and she won't allow August out of the house. Is it any wonder that he has grown up to be a rather strange boy? He has never played with another child, never attended school, never met anyone bu his aunt. When he finally does leave the house, mayhem ensues.

August ventures out of the dilapidated family home to rescue his favorite snacks when they are dropped in the front yard by the grocery delivery service. And that is when things go sideways. He meets other kids, is followed home by a zombie, and even learns that he has other relatives besides Hydrangea. But is a boy who has never interacted with anyone but his eccentric aunt ready to deal with snobs, unscrupulous adults, and bullying children? Oh...and the small problem of the zombie.

Perfect for fans of Lemony Snicket and Tim Burton, this story has oddball humor, offbeat characters, and perplexing situations.
