What do you get when you mix fifteen innocent little goldfish and the goop from a half-finished experiment hidden in a fish food container? Why Zombie Goldfish, of course! Judd is an enterprising young scientist. His lab is in the garage where he can make anything he wants to. Unfortunately, he is not the most organized of chemists so when his friend, Zak, comes to feed his fish there are some unexpected and disastrous results. The two team up to set things right and they become heroes of their town. This is a cute and silly chapter book for kids, especially boys, just starting into longer tales.
