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

"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>

"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>

"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>

"A rousing odyssey."

— Kirkus Reviews
