He's not like most kids - he doesn't have a heart beat, is super strong, and occasionally loses body parts. Yes, you can get them! The author gives characters very specific personalities in the story, Bob's Personality is the sidekick although this story is told from his perspective, Evil-O is a Heroine and a boy named Gezink who always breaks his glasses like Harry Potter or gets hurt is a problem-magnet and so on therefore people's personalities rarely change in this book. I didn't find the zombie storyline appealing, but it turns out that the story is entertaining, light-hearted, and not-super-zombie-ish. Zomboy was a twist on the zombie idea. Imre, a new boy in school, catches the eye of Evil-O.
Imre's transition from geek to zombie to hero is heart warming and entertaining. Imre is a little strange beside being a zombie boy and Evil-O is just a chillaxin' girl that believes in everyone. This book has a worthy message about discrimination that people could enjoy or as Evil-O calls it, racists. At first the novel appears to be a sort of allegory on racism and bigotry, but it also has farcical and adventure-story elements. At first the novel appears to be a sort of allegory on racism and bigotry, but it also has farcical and adventure-story elements. This is a prequel - before Bunny got his tattoo.
It's realistic -- well, not in the walking-dead nature of the title character, but in the controversy, the protests, the often frustrating opinions of other characters. Although it's an easy read for grades 5-7, it's not a book I can enthusiastically recommend. Imre is keeping a secret. They all grew together and I still have them, together with all my organs except tonsils. An undead child who isn't believe it or not evil.
Soon after, a freak accident occurs: a piano careens down the school hallway, splitting as it slams into that boy. Imre has a few complications in his life, or is life not the right term? And then theirs Bob who doesn't like the Zomboy, soon ends up liking him. The third reason to like this book at all is because of how well-written it is for young readers also it looks like a book that a actual twelve year-old wrote. The motto I was born with very little hair and very little feet and hands. Bob wants nothing to do with this strange kid, but of course Evil-O, Bob's best friend finds Imre interesting. He is kind of a coward, accident prone, and pretty honest as well.
The other settings were hardly even described described at all, which made it harder to know what was going on. My final verdict on the book Zomboy is that it could have been fixed on the ding part and I would recommend this book to anyone from the age 10-14 as the protagonist is in that age group. He'd been there all along. The author never seems to hit the right stride or tone here: the creative idea somehow slackens in the execution. Crowds surround the school every morning full of rioters, news reporters, supporters, and even a rapping, supporting mom! There may be another more feral survivor of the nuclear accident.
Well he has a good reason to. Imre, a zomboy, shows up at a small town school in Ontario with secrets to keep, but a desire to fit in. Imre was so strong to go to school every day even though there were people who were just down right jerks. The story is intriguing but I was getting skeptical as to where it was all going and then finally in those last chapters you find out Imre's secret and all the testing and the doctors that Imre has been dealing with. And finally I like this book because of how the place this book takes place in and how that part isn't fiction. You too can become a Scrimgerian! His parents were killed in a nuclear leak. I enjoyed the main character, Bob, and reading the story from his point of view.
Zomboy had an interesting story and had a lot of action at the end. He goes by the name Imre Lazar. Zomboy — an undead story — is due out next year. Actually, I talk a lot. . And finally I like this book because of how the place this book takes place in and how that part isn't fiction.
Imre is a zomboy this is not a major spoiler because not only should this be pretty obvious, you find out pretty early in the book, along with his background. This just might be my favourite Richard Scrimger book which is saying something because I reread the Nose from Jupiter until my copy fell apart. The school becomes a battle ground for protesters to support Imre Bob and Evil-O have been friends forever and puberty is not the only thing making their friendship questionable. First Zomboy Being about a Zombie might be scary he many people but the novel has many humorous parts too. I finished this book because I wan Bob's life is as normal as it can be, he has a best friend, parents who fight a lot, and a local bully.
In fact the whole town is divided on how to treat Imre in this engaging, funny and creative novel for middle graders. He is able to lift a stalled school bus off the road into the school parking lot. When a boy Named Imre joins their class everything changes and Dresden isn't a ghost town in popularity anymore. Zomboy is a darkly funny and somehow really touching look at discrimination through reactions to Imre, an undead student. By now all you gays might be asking me how is to read? From the moment he finds out what Imre really is, he decides to discriminate against him along with all kids and almost all adults in Dresden, Canada.

Despite it's dull start and boring conclusion is quite good as goodreads doesn't allow me to do a half star you can see I gave it a 3 but sadly my actual rating for it is 2.
I recommend this book to boys and girls 10, 11, 12 or to teachers who would like a good read aloud book for grades 6,7,8. It is well geared for kids these days and can be used for a tool for change. Bob, the novel's narrator and Imre's grade-seven classmate, finds the boy creepy and bizarre,if harmless. Overall, despite the rough beginning for me, a good read. You could say this title works for all of my books. This book shows that you shouldn't be treated differently from everyone just because your different.
