"I figured, being dead, my life would become a lot simpler. I wouldn't have to take care of myself or worry about stuff like eating the right food. But dead kids have a whole different bundle of problems."--Nathan Abercrombie"

It's a stinky situation when Nathan's school, Belgosi Upper Elementary, develops a mold problem and his class is forced to share space with the first graders. Soon the eighth graders show up too, including Rodney the bully's older and meaner brother, Ridley. Could he be the reason for the stinky, putrid, rotten smell that seems to be following Nathan around? It's up to Nathan, Abigail, and Mookie to solve the mystery of the big stink before it pollutes the entire town.

Fans of David Lubar's popular Weenies short story collections, which have sold more than one and a half million copies, are sure to enjoy this fourth hilarious installment of the adventures of Nathan Abercrombie, Accidental Zombie.

Reviews

Gr 4-6-Nathan is still searching for a cure for being half dead, not to mention trying to make it through gym class in one piece. The fifth graders are temporarily sharing a classroom with the eighth graders, including Ridley, a bully who has it out for Nathan and pretty much anyone else who happens to be around. To make matters worse, Nathan is starting to rot and the smell is becoming quite a problem, especially since only his two best friends know about his condition. And when he's not worrying about Ridley or stinking, Nathan continues to spend his nights training as a spy for the Bureau of Useful Misadventures, where his zombie skills can be put to good use. This is a great choice for reluctant readers and anyone who enjoys humorous stories. Despite being filled with farts and vomit, ultimately it's a sweet story about the importance of friendship, family, and doing the right thing. While it does reference incidents that occurred in previous books, it stands on its own.-Kerry Roeder, The Brearley School, New York City (c) Copyright 2010.
