Arnold Z. Ombee has escaped a secret government zombie project -- but now can he survive human elementary school?

From the hilarious mind behind the Crimebiters series comes a new trilogy that fans of The Last Kids on Earth will love to pieces (literally). Arnold Z. Ombee has escaped a secret government lab that's developing zombies. Young, scared, and alone, he is found by the Kinders, a warmhearted couple who take him in. The Kinders decide Arnold will become part of their family. They help him disguise his undead appearance and teach him how to act like a human boy. After a lot of practice, he's ready for the ultimate test: Fifth grade!

"Greenwald breathes new life into the zombie story with a few twists and Norbus' fresh, funny narration. Bardin's cartoon spot illustrations add a cinematic quality that matches well with the short chapters and quick pace." -- Kirkus Reviews"Themes of being an outsider and finding your place in the world are present throughout this book.
