Wow, all those imaginary zombies stumbling around on TV, in film and in print can't compete with these real-life critters. Meet nature’s zombie makers — including a fly-enslaving fungus, a suicide worm, and a cockroach-taming wasp — and their victims. The author rides the current zombie wave, but brings a lot to the party - apologies for that mixed metaphor. From the witty, well-written text to the in-your-face color photography, this book will enlighten and entertain students in the intermediate and middle school grades looking for a little gross-out reality with their science nonfiction.
