Review by mariah2
I received a copy of this book through Netgalley. The eBook images were not clear, and while I could see the artwork, this created a difficulty when reading the text. Nate, Patrice, Crazy Dave, and some no nonsense plants try their best to rid their beloved town of some fearsome invaders. The invading zombies don’t know what they are in for, however, when they try to take over Neighborville. The illustrations are lively, the text is humorous, and there are zombies. What more could a kid want? My bet is they will want the next installment of this series.
Review by Vantine
Based on the popular video game, this book reflects the spirit of the game. While many of those who play the game are adults, the graphic novel would primarily appeal to kids in late elementary/middle school. The humor used is definitely grounded in that age group. It would be a great book to show to reluctant readers or kids who are more interested in video games than books. I would think that it would also appeal to fans of Big Nate/Wimpy Kid (also popular with reluctant readers.)<br/><br/>In the story, Nate and Patrice team up with Patrice's uncle, Crazy Dave, to battle the zombies invading Neighborville. Crazy Dave, the plants, and the zombies are all recognizable from the game. The plot moves quickly as the kids and their allies gain ground and lose it to the zombies. Will they be able to remove the cloud blocking the sun? Will Crazy Dave get to make pancakes? <br/><br/>While there are zombies, all of the action is at a cartoon level and there is nothing that would not be appropriate for children.
