How to Navigate Zombie Cave and Defeat Pirate Pete is about exactly what the title suggests... Mick sets out to this Zombie Cave in the search of Pirate Pete's treasure and defeat him while he's at it. Why is he doing this, you ask? It's really sweet actually. You see, Mick wants to find the treasure because he wants to help his mom financially! Awwws! Such a sweet kid :)
When I first heard about this book I knew I had to read! It just sounded like a lot of fun! And it totally was! Such an adventure! There was non-stop action and it was very humorous! There was also lots of awesome gore, but nothing too gory... it is a children's novel, after all ;)
While on his adventure, Mick leaves behind his little brother Finley who wants to come along really badly! But hello! Pirate zombies? I don't think so, little brother. And can I just say how much I loved Mick and Finley's brotherly relationship! Finley annoys the heck out of Mick like any other younger sibling, but in the end he really loves him and will protect him no matter what. It was very endearing :) Kinda reminds me of two other brothers I've recently become obsessed with...
One thing, though, we don't get to know Mick all that well and we don't get too much of a back story or a ton of dialogue. There is some, but not too much.
But overall, it was an awesome book! It was a very easy, fast read with amazingly vivid and creepy descriptions. Great for the kiddos who love fun adventurous books with a little bit of a creepy twist! This is a series I'll definitely be passing on to my 10-year-old brothers!
