Kids don’t get much wimpier than fourth-grader Stanley Nudelman. He is shy and afraid of, well, lots of things. He spends most of his time hiding from school bully Knuckles Bruzkowski.

But then everything changes when Stanley finds an unusual stuffed animal at Old Lady Imavitch’s yard sale. Zombiekins is part bunny, part teddy bear—and 100 percent zombie! When Stanley brings his new friend to school, all heck breaks loose. Now Stanley will have to find the courage he’s pretty sure he doesn’t have in order to stop zombies from taking over the fourth grade!

With years of experience as a language arts teacher, Kevin Bolger knows the types of stories kids devour. Bolger’s distinct brand of humor is hilariously conveyed by award-winning narrator and stand-up comedian Johnny Heller.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Onomatopoeia, puns, and alliteration rule the school in the ghastly gala of gleefully goofy gore…Narrator Johnny Heller is in rare form, moaning and groaning, milking every strangled consonant and mangled vowel, impersonating teachers and students alive and undead, and bringing Bolger’s sound effects to eerie life…Will be especially fun at Halloween.”

    School Library Journal

  • “A fast and funny read…this will have readers shouting such zombie catchphrases as hrnrgrghnrr and yaarghhh. Well, maybe not, but they’ll have fun anyway.”


  • “The strange, disgusting zombie behavior…will give young readers a thrill. So will the quirky humor and word play deftly woven by the author who also penned Sir Fartsalot Hunts the Booger.”

    Children’s Literature

  • “Bolger’s silly zombie spoof will tickle the funny bone and satisfy the gross-out quotient of any reader, reluctant or otherwise…The whole thing’s worth the hilarious stuff-animal slaughter at the outset.”

    " Stanley Nudelman buys Zombiekins at his creepy neighbor's yard sale and before you know it the sinister stuffy is disemboweling his sister's stuffed animals and zombiefying his classmates. The great illustrations add to the silly, disgusting fun. "
