    My big fat zombie goldfish is about a kid-and his goldfish can hypnotize you by looking into its eyes. This kid spends the whole book keeping his goldfish out of trouble. It is a very funny book, and I would recommend it.

      I think this book is a really good book, because there was a goldfish that Max, an evil brother, bought for a school project. Max made a green goo from his science kit and dunked the goldfish in it.Tom, Max,s younger brother, saved the goldfish by shocking the goldfish with a battery which turned it into a zombie goldfish. I really enjoyed reading this book.

        The story features an ordinary, pet goldfish named Frankie that turned aggressive, bigger, and into a zombie!! Tom has an older brother who dreams of doing experiments and starts with intoxicating the goldish in some green matter. However, things get really out of hand when the goldish wants revenge.

          This book was super funny and exciting with experiments, zombie goldfish and evil scientist older brothers. Tom is lucky to have his zombie goldfish when his brother and his brother's friend try to take over the school. People who like adventure and friendship should like this book just like I did.

            When Tom's older brother becomes an Evil Scientist, he dunks the goldfish in some green gunk. Tom brings it back to life with a battery, but the gold fish turned into a zombie. I would say that this book would be good for little kids.

                Okay, so I don't really know how to explane this book. I mean if you like books about mad scientist, zombies, and stuff like that I guess you would like this book. But I am not that type of person. It was just so, I don't know, weird? So, yeah I didn't like it and I wouldn't recommend it to anybody except maybe to my little cousin.

                    When Tom's big brother goes from mostly evil to very evil crazy stuff happens. Like almost killing a goldfish. When Tom and his friend bring the fish back to life with a battery, the goldfish is not just a goldfish. IT'S A ZOMBIE GOLDFISH!!! I have to say i was not sure when i got this from my library because i had seen a review that said this book was a little boring. But when i got into it, it was AMAZING! now this book is kind of two story's in one but with the same topic. So i think you need to try it. You might just like it, I know i did! So? what you waiting for? read it!

                      At first this book seemed like it was just about an evil big brother but when the zombie goldfish wanted revenge the book got confusing but by the end of the book I can say I understand the plot completely. Over all I love this and can't wait to read the SEA-quell.
