Something is rotten in the state of Deadmark. But of course there is: It’s filled with zombies, like Edda. Join a young science-minded zombie named Edda as she deals with a series of death-altering problems, including a climate crisis caused by the anti-science humans in Ignorway, the disappearance of her mom, and the scheming of her greedy Aunt Agonista.
This brainy adaptation of Shakespeare’s Hamlet is the anticipated follow-up to the acclaimed Hazy Fables #1: Hobgoblin and the Seven Stinkers of Rancidia (a Kirkus Best Book of 2019 and a Foreword INDIES Book of the Year Award winner).
From a zombie virus unleashed by a climate crisis, to a society divided by anti-science misinformation, Zombie, Or Not to Be is a middle-grade chapter book primed for our current and unprecedented situation. But this faithful adaptation of Hamlet is not a downer: it's chock-full of brain-craving fun and hundreds of references, nods, and winks to one of the most influential works in the history of world literature.
Zombie, Or Not to Be is a commercial-quality 6x8.75”, 224-page, hard cover chapter book with a soft-touch, matte-finish dust jacket.
Reading level: 8 to 12.
