The Zombie Zone

by Ron Roy
Series: A to Z Mysteries #26
96 pages, Mystery
Reviewed by bookRacoon

A clean book that is not about monsters, as its title might suggest.


Dink, Josh, and Ruth Rose are best friends who live in the town of Green Lawn, Connecticut. When the three vacation to a village in Louisiana, they hear tales of a zombie stealing from the cemetery. The three go see someone later that night, and seek to investigate.


One character has low morals, but he is the antagonist. Josh, Dink, and Ruth Rose are all good characters.

Spiritual Content

Although God is not mentioned in this book, Dink and his friends act very morally. Zombies are mentioned and the theory of them escaping the graveyard plays a critical role in the story.



Drug and Alcohol Content


Sexual Content


Crude or Profane Language or Content



This book is a good end to the A to Z series. It does contain the mention of zombies, but it isn't a monster story and the content should not frighten kids in its age range. The cover, which features a cemetery, may creep some children out.

Fun Score: 5
Values Score: 5
Written for Age: 8-10
