  About The Book

This zany, grand-slam adventure from bestselling author Paolo Bacigalupi takes on hard-hitting themes and tells the story of three boys who discover that their town's meatpacking plant is using toxic cattle feed that turns cows into flesh-craving monsters! The friends' investigation into the plant's dangerous practices uncovers a greedy corporation's plot to look the other way, and now the boys will have to grab their bats to protect themselves if they want to stay alive...and maybe even save the world.

"Printz-winning Bacigalupi writing a middle-grade zombie novel? Yes, it really happened, and yes, it's pretty darn good....Simultaneously smart, funny, and icky, this book asks a tough question: Is it worth looking the other way in order to save yourself?"
