Scared to Beath: Zom­bie RiZing Book 1

The Daily Telegraph (Sydney) - Best Weekend - - SATURDAY SHOPSPOT -

Matt J Pike and Steve Grice, $12

They are not the most promis­ing teen com­bi­na­tion to front the Zom­bie RiZing that has taken over their high school and their town: a slow, over­weight, food­fix­ated boy, a pe­tite Asian mu­si­cian, a buck­toothed In­dian crick­eter, a girl in a wheel­chair, a slightly daffy sci­ence teacher and an op­ti­mistic bossy-boots, but it is not long be­fore they find they have fledg­ling su­per­pow­ers. Steve Grice’s grue­some car­toons add char­ac­ter and sus­pense and all six vol­umes in the first se­ries in­clude Aug­mented Re­al­ity col­lectibles that can be ac­ti­vated by a mo­bile phone app. Part-pro­ceeds from the books go to help find a cure for the crip­pling neu­ro­log­i­cal dis­or­der Rett syn­drome.
