My big fat Zombie Goldfish – Jurassic Carp

My big fat Zombie Goldfish – Jurassic Carp By Mo O’Hara (Pan Macmillan)
RRP $9.99
ISBN 9781447263838

Reviewed by Ramona Davey

What is there not to love about two boys and their zombie goldfish having to attend a medieval day? Throw in two evil older brothers with a suspicious plan and an evil kitten, a rogue knight and a scientist with the name Dr McDoom!

Each chapter, filled with mystery, disaster and hope ends with an intriguing question or cliff hanger urging the reader to turn the page.

This is number six of a series based on Frankie the big fat zombie goldfish who loves to eat green things, and his owner Tom who could tell you five reasons why it is good to dress up as a peasant. To find out how Frankie became a big fat Zombie goldfish read one of the previous titles.

There is a surprising twist at the end and this highlights how you must not judge a doctor by her name or a Jurassic fish by its grumpy face!

The digital comic style illustrations, in black and white throughout the text are great for those readers that enjoy visual aspects to reading or find too much text confronting and off putting.

A humorous chapter book for 6-9 year olds or anyone who likes to read about zombie or Jurassic animals.
