The brilliantly funny fifth book in the SAM WU series, starring the bravest scaredy-cat in the world! Perfect for reluctant readers and fans of Tom Fletcher, Pamela Butchart and Humza Arshad's Badman.
There's hardly anything that Sam Wu is afraid of. Unless you count ghosts, sharks, the dark and maybe even spiders. But definitely NOT zombies. Except for actual real ones maybe.
So when Sam's arch nemesis, Ralph Zinkerman the Third announces that he has zombie werewolves living in his basement, for the first time ever, Sam really isn't sure if he wants to be the one to save the day. Ralph has always been pretty mean to him and, well, just one little nibble from the zombie werewolves wouldn't hurt that much, would it?
Common childhood fears dealt with in a hilarious, sensitive and accessible way.

Illustrated fiction is still having something of a boom, but if you're looking for a non-white protagonist it's slim pickings indeed. Happily Sam Wu is about to change all that. A hero of Asian heritage with a diverse set of friends . . . it's enormous fun, madcap and relatable.', Bookseller
