I am so pleased to be welcoming back one of our past team of guest reviewers: Lisa and Michael Cohn.
Lisa and Michael Cohn are co-authors of the award-winning kids’ dog book, “Bash And Lucy Fetch Confidence.” If you will recall, they provided a great review of Scooby Doo and the Case of the Doughy Creature and they were also recently featured on the Today Show for their book and Michael’s YouTube book reviews. It is totally worth a peek! You can visit them at www.BashAndLucy.com.
About the Book
Title: Scooby-Doo & The Zombie’s Treasure | Author: James Gelsey | Publication Date: September 3, 2012 | Publisher: Warner Bros. Global Publishing | Pages: 50 | Recommended Ages: 6 to 10 | Reviewed by: Lisa and Michael (Mother and Son)
Summary: Scooby and the gang are camping at Treasure Bend Campground. But they get more than roasted marshmallows when a treasure-stealing zombie haunts their campsite. Zoinks! Can the gang catch this zany zombie?
My Thoughts: I like it when Shaggy says, “We saw Mr. Light bulb eyes” because the zombie has glow-in-the-dark eyes. In the book, they’re at a campground. The mystery is solved after the zombie chases Scooby and the zombie lands in a flower garden. They take the mask off the zombie, and find out who he really is. They always take the mask off—unless the bad guy is a real zombie!
Here’s Michael doing a video review of Scooby Doo and The Zombie’s Treasure on YouTube:
My Thoughts: We love Scooby-Doo books because they’re mysteries solved by a very funny dog and his friends. This formula is irresistible. The gang members all have very distinct and funny personalities. This book is no exception. It follows the Scooby-Doo formula: a mystery to solve, the gang splits up to look for clues, and they find out who’s behind the mystery. This book is especially fun because it involves a camping trip, treasure, and an outdoor adventure. I love the illustrations—especially when Scooby-Doo gets up on his hind legs and imitates the zombie!
Michael loves Scooby-Doo books so much that we’ve begun writing songs about them. Here’s one!
