"There's little more terrifying than being chased by a moaning creature that wants to eat your flesh! Though zombies are currently popular on TV and in movies, stories of the undead have been around for centuries. The main content introduces readers to zombie tales from many cultures around the world in grisly detail via accessible language for reluctant readers. Full-color illustrations and photographs help readers imagine these monstrous myths while fun fact boxes debunk common beliefs and offer additional context for each terrifying tale."--Publisher's website.
