During a zombie apocalypse, the important thing is to not panic.
Actually, that’s not true. Definitely panic.
These things are going to try to eat your face off!
Sam and Arty are looking forward to summer vacation so much that they barely notice when their bumbling science teacher causes an explosion of purple goo that drenches their classmate, Simon. They’re sure Simon will be fine—he looks a little gray, but things like this happen all the time in the town of Sitting Duck.
But Simon is not fine—and totally loses his head when he becomes a zombie! Soon the town is crawling with rabid zombies looking for braaaaaains! The adults are busy panicking and screaming, so it’s up to Sam (the leader) Arty (the brains), and their friend Emmie (the rebel) to take charge. If they can’t find a cure, it will be a disaster!
Disaster Diaries: Zombies! is perfect for young readers, reluctant or otherwise, with a wacky sense of humor. The first in this hilarious middle grade series from author R. McGeddon will prepare you for your own zombie infestation, with handy tips like how to spot zombies. (Hint: their faces are falling off).

About the Author
R. McGeddon is absolutely sure the world is almost certainly going to probably end very soon. His middle grade series, The Disaster Diaries, details the many ways this could happen, including a zombie apocalypse, an alien invasion, and a mad scientist. A strange, reclusive fellow – so reclusive in fact, that no one has ever seen him, not even his mom – he plots his stories using letters cut from old newspapers and types them up on an encrypted typewriter. It’s also believed that he goes by other names, including A. Pocalypse and N. Dov Days, but since no one’s ever met him in real life, it’s hard to say for sure. One thing we know is that when the zombie apocalypse comes, he’ll be ready!
