Book Review: 'No Zombies Allowed' by Matt Novak

✰✰✰½ Witch Wizzle and Witch Woddle are planning their annual monster party, but first they need to do some cleaning. As they tidy up, they discover a photo from last year's party. Looking at the photo gives them pause for thought. So they decide it might be best not to invite the zombies, and they put up a sign. As they continues cleaning, more photos reveal other party disasters like the werewolves, skeletons, and ghosts, and more signs follow. Last but not least, let's not forget the witches, but wait a minute. The last photos reveal a surprise that lead Witch Wizzle and Witch Woddle to reconsider and put up one last sign. Will this be the party of the year or a complete disaster? You'll have to find out for yourself because what happens at the party, stays at the party.

The Bottom Line: This humorous book illustrates what happens when everyone is excluded, and the two witches discover that it's more fun when everyone can participate. Colorful watercolors illustrate the antics. Fun seasonal reading for ages 4 - 6.

Details: No Zombies Allowed written & illustrated by Matt Novak. Picture book published by Atheneum Books for Young Readers in 2002. 32 p. ISBN: 0-689-84130-2
