      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.

        My Big Fat Zombie Goldfish is a book I would recommend to younger children. I also think that this book is a good for boys.

          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.

                The book was very vague and confusing, but it was still interesting to read. The story is about a boy who has a goldfish that turns very weird and the brother is a mad scientist.

                    The fish became a zombie who is callled Frankie. I loved how comical the books was in sense of how Mark was doing an experiment and the fish came back to life.
