Bought this second hand and you wouldn't know, it looked brand new. Bought as a joke present for Dad as we are giving him 60 presents for his 60th and he's a big Walking Dead fan (well we all are). My niece and I couldn't resist having a go first and ended up spending a good hour completely engrossed. I reckon it is suitable for all ages, but it is a bit gruesome for younger children. I would buy again from this seller, arrived promptly, as described.

This is a review of a book that I would have loved to have received as a Christmas or birthday present. The book is called Where's the Zombie? and it is written by Jen Wainwright and illustrated by Paul Moran. It is, if you hadn't guessed already, a Where's Wally? (or if you're American, Where's Waldo?) type of book. The book contains 17 double page spreads packed full of figures (humans and zombies for the most part) and your job is to find 10 family members who are all zombies, 10 first aid kits and 5 special items that are listed at the back of the book. That gives 25 separate things to find in each picture, meaning hours of fun.
The zombie apocalypse began when Joel Peters, a scientist at Hart Laboratories, New York, got exposed to a deadly virus named ZX-5, which he was developing. He was sent home and quarantined. However, he spread the infection to his family and they all somehow escaped. The Hart family consists of Joel, his wife Martha, four children (an older daughter, a son and two female twins), Joel's father and mother, and their two pets, a cat and a dog. Yes, even the animals were zombified. You can clearly see all ten members of the Hart family on the front cover.
Please note that the front cover has a parental advisory notice because the book contains gruesome scenes. This is true. There is a lot of gore in the book, so it may not be suitable for very young children. The back of the book shows the answers to where the family and the first aid kits can be found, but it also gives you a further five items per scene to find and these are not shown in the answer pages. Most of them are easy to spot but some are fiendishly difficult. The family members are not too hard to find, although the cat, being the smallest, can be rather tricky to find. Finding all 10 first aid kits is a lot harder because they are so small.
I must admit that I found this book immensely enjoyable and it kept me quiet and busy for hours as I searched for the 25 items per scene. I was pleased to note that the book gave a nod to the original Wally/Waldo, in that he appears in one of the scenes (the fourth one set in Ringhill High School). He's the geek with a suitcase, one of the five special items you're asked to find. He isn't wearing his trademarked red and white hooped top but the face is definitely him. A very nice touch, I thought.

Brought as a gimicky Christmas present, which it was fine as such. But it was not a book that has been looked through since... It is ok, cool concept but hardly age appropriate for young adults and older people it was aimed at

This book is great I was a huge fan of the Where's Wally books as a child. This give a great adult twist to the concept. The scenes are well drawn and very entertaining. There is a story running through the book too.

Zombies...yeay! Rather amusing alternative to where's wally...maybe they will bring out a where's willy? Still, if you know a horror or zombie fan, get them this, it's great and you actually do try to find them.

I purchased this as a Christmas stocking filler gift for my son who loves zombies at the moment. I think that this is a pretty good idea based on the Wheres Wally range of books. He is very pleased with it.

I enjoy looking through this book, i love all the detail that has gone into it & finding the zombie family among the hundreds of others on each page. It passes time nicely during those times of boredom.

Bought this for my sister as she is zombie mad. It really is an enjoyable book and I have tried hard to find the zombies but have had no luck. Great book for a zombie enthusiast.
