Summary
Are undead, brain-hungry zombies real, or just a myth? You decide with this new book in the nonfiction series, Behind the Legend!

Behind the Legend looks at creatures and monsters throughout history and analyzes them through a scientific, myth-busting lens, debating whether or not the sightings and evidence provided are adequate proof of their existence. In Zombies , readers learn about all the stories and "proof" of them, from accounts in history and literature of people being made into zombies, including from reports Mesopotamia, Haiti, and America, as well as our own modern understanding of zombies' qualities. It also discusses additional history about the monsters, such as how zombies became major figures in popular culture, more recent understandings, and theories on how people turn into zombies. Complete with engaging anecdotes, interesting sidebars, and fantastic illustrations, kids won't want to put this book down!

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "How and when did such supernatural creatures as werewolves and zombies begin to terrify us? These high-interest titles in the Behind the Legend series trace the origin of the monsters from ancient times to their modern-day depictions in pop culture. In the process, they weave folklore, historical accounts, and theories that may explain the seemingly unbelievable. Zombies opens with early depictions from Gilgamesh and The Arabian Nights before giving a detailed description of the zombi of Haiti. West African slaves brought to harvest sugarcane were so physically and psychologically tortured that they were dead inside. The author recounts how American exposure to this concept led the way to today's rendition of zombies. Each volume features cartoon artwork (though respectful when needed) from different illustrators. The effective blend of history and creepiness makes these guides a spirited pick for avid and reluctant readers alike.--Leeper, Angela Copyright 2018 Booklist"
