Offers tips and advice about how to survive a zombie attack, how to avoid becoming a zombie, and what to do if confronted by the living dead.

Barron's Educational Publishing
Fans of classic horror films and gothic tales will want to add The Zombie Handbook to their personal library. Combining dramatic narrative with spooky color illustrations, author Robert Curran explains the difference between the zombies of Caribbean folklore and the sinister walking dead mummies from ancient Egypt who are said to rise from their tombs and seek revenge when their burial sites are plundered. Zombies also appear in ancient Celtic folklore, and this book tells of a magical cauldron forged from the helmet of a fallen Welsh god. In ancient Britain it was said that a dead body placed in that cauldron would rise again as a living person. For readers who believe that zombies really do walk the earth at night, here are tips on ways to identify a zombie and survive his attack. Here too are reports that claim to tell of true-life encounters between living men and zombies. This entertaining book combines thrills and chills with touches of macabre humor to offer hours of reading pleasure. It has an elastic place marker bound into the back cover, and it features more than 100 striking color illustrations.
