Return of ZomBert

By Kara LaReau
Illustrated by Ryan Andrews

A second meaty serving of the ZomBert Chronicles offers a suspenseful treat for animal lovers and fans of spooky mysteries.

ZomBert is back in book two of a wry new mystery series by award-winning creators Kara LaReau and Ryan Andrews. A stray cat who escaped the YummCo Laboratories on the outskirts of Lambert, Bert has now been officially adopted by nine-year-old Mellie Gore. He spends his days dozing in Mellie’s room and his nights hunting . . . and devouring fresh prey. Bert’s health and memory have returned, and his newfound strength and smarts are off the charts. Mellie, meanwhile, is busy working odd jobs to fund her cat’s visit to the vet, convinced that Bert can win the Best Pet contest at the upcoming YummCo-sponsored Harvest Festival. But is Bert really the best pet in Lambert—or just the weirdest? And could he be plotting revenge? Clever illustrated fare for fans of Bunnicula and other humorous forays into the macabre.

  • The second title in the ZomBert Chronicles, a middle grade mystery series perfect for both animal lovers and fans of eerie, spooky stories
  • Written with just the right touch of humor mixed with the macabre by award-winning author Kara LaReau and illustrated by award-winning artist Ryan Andrews
  • Kirkus called the first book in the series, Rise of Zombert, "enjoyably mysterious"
