CASE FILE 13: ZOMBIE KID is a goofy, humorous horror adventure likely to please readers who enjoy monsters, light scares, and plenty of jokes about body functions. Nick and his friends are exaggerated types, but their interplay feels relaxed and realistic. Don't pretend, though, that the zombie mumbo-jumbo in the plot has much to do with the actual practice of vodoun and other Caribbean religions/folklore.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
