Wyatt, Chris Doc Ant-Man: Zombie Repellent 119 pgs. Marvel, 2015. $5.99 CHAPTER BOOK
Scott Lange is the Ant-Man, and one day in central park he discovers
a big problem, something is wrong with the ants. When these ants bite humans,
it turns the humans into Zombies! Ant-Man tries to tell the avengers, but only the
Hulk believes him. Things quickly get out of hand as Ironman himself is bitten by
an infected ant. Will Scott be able to save the day?
This was actually quite long and complex for a chapter book,
although like a chapter book it featured tons of text variation, colors, and
illustrations for added interest. For a school library there are some decent attributes; because of the
movie it will be popular, the plot involves learning about viruses and the
components of blood, and the vocabulary is a bit challenging and could actually
result in some learning!
