My Life as a Third Grade Zombie
Joe and his friend Maria find being third grade zombies is very hard. If it's not their teacher, Ms. Bogus, on their case, it's the principal, or for Joe, it's his mom and her voodoo doll. Then one day, Joe and Maria get to audition for the show THE ZOMBIE KIDZ. You could say they finally get to be themselves.
Joe's akimbo features aren't a big hit among his classmates. The story follows Joe in his day-to-day life of being a third grade zombie, pressures he feels from being different, and ultimately, how he learns to accept and even embrace his uniqueness.
With all the bullying that goes on today, it's hard for kids to come to the point of self-acceptance. The purpose of this book is to shed light on individuality and being comfortable in your own skin regardless of how different you might feel.
Journey along to discover how the characters learn to embrace their uniqueness and find self-acceptance.
