Survival, Zombies and Hidden Rooms by Cindy, Staff Blogger

Survival! Zombies! Hidden Rooms!....What if there was this story...

Zara gasped for breath! She had been running, like...forever,but the Zombies were still after her. How would she survive this night? A dark shape appeared in the woods. It was a house with an unhinged door hanging off a gaping black hole. She tripped up the steps, through the black hole and ran into a room filled with enlightened books, in categories: Survival, Zombies, Hidden Rooms. Zara glared at the shelves and had a light bulb moment, "In the stories, there is always...like... a hidden room behind the bookcase!" Desperately she felt around the shelves for a catch. She heard the moaning of the Zombies getting closer. She found the catch. Pressed it. The shelves groaned open to reveal the hidden room. She stepped inside. The shelves groaned louder, shutting her inside the semi darkness of the hidden room. Then it dawned on her, " The sun is coming up, the room is getting lighter, I've...like... survived another Zombie attack!". She turned around to look at the hidden room and realised the sun wasn't rising at all through the windows. There were no windows. Just several pairs of glowing eyes staring at her in the dark.

If these three book bundle titles spark your imagination, or sense of humour like they did mine, then they are worth the read. Have a look at these titles and perhaps you find the Hidden Room, escape the Zombies AND learn to Survive.
