It's no surprise that zombie-loving H has enjoyed this book with its fun story line. For voracious readers it's good to note that it is part of a series, so there are other books to enjoy. (92three30.com)

If you believe this book to be about a zombie fish that eats brains this is not it. This fish eats moldy green items so if you have moldy bread or moldy oranges then give it to Frankie.
K really like the idea of how Frankie the goldfish became a zombie and he really laughed when people started using the goldfish zombie stare. We had fun trying to do it when it was mentioned.
Mark is Tom's older brother and he is evil so it doesn't help matters when he becomes an evil scientist and he tries to harm a goldfish. That is when Tom and Pradeep come into the play to save Frankie but what did they create when they saved him?
It seems that now Frankie wants to revenge but so does Mark who will end up winning so to speak?
Mark and his friend have plans to rule the world with Frankie's non help but will they succeed in their take over?
K thought it was really funny how in the school Frankie was going down the drains and jumping from sink to sink to avoid being captured so I was glad he got a giggle out of that.
The sibling rivalry was a bit more than I expected it to be, it went from tying up to covering with tape. It felt a bit too much at times. So I think this would maybe be better for the older teens to read rather than a ten year old.
Now there are two books within it. We start off with learning how Frankie came to be and how Tom and Pradeep and Pradeep's sister all join in to help save him. Then we move on to the next part which is when Frankie joins Tom at school and that starts off a whole other adventure.
We may read the next book in the series just to see what else can happen I just hope that the word moron is not overly used again.
Mo O'Hara's debut book (the first in a trilogy) is a funny, fast-paced read that has strong themes of friendship and loyalty and which has wonderful illustrations that will appeal to anyone aged 7+.
The book is actually split into two stories - the first an origin (or should that be `orifin'?) story explaining how Frankie came into being and the second a story about what happens when Tom brings Frankie to school.
Central to the story is Tom and Pradeep's friendship. I loved the rapport that the two boys have and their shared misery at each having older brothers who pick on them, which offers a rich comic seam that O'Hara mines perfectly and will be familiar to younger siblings everywhere. I also liked the way that each boy tries to stand up to their brothers in their own way.
The star of the book though is Frankie the eponymous zombie goldfish. I wondered how O'Hara was going to pull him off because the obvious problems with having a fish anti-hero is that they need to be in water all the time. O'Hara deals with it ingeniously, her solution involving a plastic bag of water that I won't spoil but which made me fall about laughing. His hatred of Mark is well depicted as his growing friendship with Tom.
Mention should be made of the illustrations by Mareck Jagucki, which are absolutely pitch perfect - especially the little flip pictures in the bottom right hand corner, which I could have played with for hours.
All in all I think this book is a lot of fun from start to finish and I heartily recommend it to anyone aged 7+.
In REVENGE OF THE PARANORMAL PETS, someone is kidnapping pets with paranormal powers and Frankie is next on their list! Tom, Pradeep and Frankie join up with Geeky Girl (real name Glenda) to find out who’s responsible but the culprit is wicked smart and it looks like Frankie has finally met his match …
The third in Mo O’Hara’s ZOMBIE GOLDFISH series is another fun, entertaining read that does a great job of showing the friendship between Tom, Pradeep and Frankie, introduces some potential new characters – notably Geeky Girl who is a lot of fun – and neatly satirises Steve Irwin/Bear Grylls type of adventurer/TV presenter. Out of the two stories, I preferred REVENGE OF THE PARANORMAL PETS to FRANKIE GOES WILD, mainly because I loved the other pets with superpowers – notably Molly the nearly invisible poodle and Toby the teleporting tortoise – and also because Geeky Girl is a welcome female addition to the cast. Once again Mareck Jagucki’s illustrations really add to the text and his sheep line will be a big favourite with fans of SHAUN THE SHEEP and there’s another neat little flip animation in the corner – a detail that makes me grin every time. All in all this is another book that made me grin like an idiot and I look forward to reading the next in the series.
