Description

The comfortable life of Pickles, the calico housecat, is turned upside down when humans succumb to a zombie apocalypse. She doesn’t know where her “pet” – human child Connor – has gone, only that there are zombies everywhere.

Determined to find Connor, Pickles sets off with her cat friends and a streetwise raccoon, exploring a world she has only seen through a window. Fending off human zombies, street cats from the wrong side of the track, and a fearsome gang of chipmunks, Pickles and her crew search for remnants of human society.

Editorial Reviews

"This is a story about love, friendship, and perseverance, packed with a lot of action (and zombies) that is sure to keep young readers engaged till the very end."


"Pickles and her gang are endlessly engaging, possessing ingenuity, kindness, courage, and awesome sparks of humour."

— Quill & Quire

"This book finally answers that all important question: what will pets do during a zombie apocalypse? A fast-paced, funny read with a pinch of fear and a dollop of yuck. No matter what kind of pet you have, you’ll love these four-legged survivors."

— Arthur Slade, author of <i>The Hunchback Assignments</i> and <i> Crimson</i>

"A rousing odyssey."

— Kirkus Reviews

"The secret life of post apocalyptic pets. Inventive, thrilling and fun!"

— Kevin Sylvester, author of <i>MiNRS</i> and <i>The Almost Epic Squad</i>

"Pickles vs. the Zombies is a fun read that takes a typical zombie narrative but tells it from the perspective of the pets left behind."

— Canadian Review of Materials

"They made the strangest fellowship since the one in the Lord of the Rings. Instead of a wizard, an elf, and others, this group consisted of several cats, a raccoon, and a hyperactive hamster led by the courageous Pickles determined to find his beloved human, Connor. Angela Misri takes us on a heart-stopping roller-coaster of a ride through sewers, encounters with rats, an evil opossum, and the ever-present zombies. This is a fabulous story of adventure, friendship, and the true meaning of family."

— Kathy Kacer, author of <i>I Am Not a Number</i> and <i>The Sound of Freedom</i>
