What is it about?

Zombie kittens, also known as zittens, have been unleashed on the world by billionaire guinea pig, Dr Marmalade. It’s up Wolf, Snake, Piranha and Shark to save the day. They are usually perceived as the bad guys, but these guys are actually the good guys. Confused yet?

What can children learn from it?

This book series is a fun read. It turns the tables on the stereotyping of animals. Why must the snake, wolf, piranha and shark always be the bad guys? Well, in this series they are the good guys, although they fumble and have to learn to work together to save the world.

Children will learn about the value of teamwork and not to stereotype people and animals.

What did I like about it?

I didn’t think that I would like this book. I am not really a fan of children’s graphic books but this one is different. There are funny characters, the storytelling is good and you just don’t see the twists coming.

It’s witty and the adventure makes it a fun read.
