Synopsis: Armed with a pitchfork, miner's hat, and map, Mick Bogerman dares to hunt for pirate treasure in Zombie Cave. His little brother Finley is tied up at the beach. Literally--Mick tied him up. No one needs a little brother tagging along when you're going to slay the undead. But Mick soon wishes he'd taken some human company with him, because lurking in every corner, reaching from every crevice, is another hungry corpse. No wonder the place is named Zombie Cave! And finding treasure in the twisty tunnels is a lot harder when your map disintegrates. And man-oh-man the cold, dark tide chases fast. But the worst part about fighting off ravenous flesh-eaters is the one monster deadlier than a regular zombie . . . the worst of the worst . . . Pirate Pete.
Mick is on the hunt for pirate treasure and to make sure his little brother doesn't tag along and foul things up he ties him up before heading to the cave. Defeating several zombies on his quest, Mick finds himself pinned down by zombies. The treasure is with in reach, but zombies are on the hunt can Mick escape before it's too late?
How to Navigate Zombie Cave and Defeat Pirate Pete is a fantastic read for middle grade readers. I was completely enthralled with the brotherly antics between Mick and Finley and the vicious undead determined to protect the long lost treasure. Readers, especially boys, will be captivated by the setting and young Mick's quest to defeat the evil zombies. The story is well written and the characters are highly entertaining.
I recommend picking up a copy of How to Navigate Zombie Cave and Defeat Pirate Pete.
