Zombie Baseball Beatdown

$7.99

As winner of the Hugo, the Michael L. Printz Award, and many other honors, author Paolo Bacigalupi has built a reputation for crafting deft, fully-realized futures for both adult and young adult audiences with novels like The Windup Girl and Ship Breaker. Now, he expands his extraordinary range even further. Full of action, humor, and hijinks galore, Zombie Baseball Beatdown delivers exactly what the title promises, combining two of America’s favorite pastimes: sports and zombie-fighting.

Best friends Rabi, Miguel, and Joe live near an Iowa beef packing plant with a history of questionable practices. But things go from questionable to apocalyptic fast when the factory proves the source of a zombie outbreak that only the boys can stop. Luckily, they have important weapons on their side, their quick wits and trusty baseball bats!

Against this backdrop of zany mayhem, Bacigalupi still manages to raise the very real issues readers have come to expect from him. The book skillfully explores themes of environmentalism and social justice, while never once letting the pace slack or the focus waver from the most important task at hand—beating down zombies.

Zombie Beatdown: Automating by Micah Cinco on Prezi

Ultimately, this is a book that I’ll still sincerely recommend to kids who will either gloss over the politics or not mind them, and it’ll have a prominent place in our Halloween book display next October. It may make Cory Doctorow’s YA lit look subtle in comparison, but Zombie Baseball Beatdown is also a zombie-infested revenge fantasy filled with lots of cow poop — what’s not to love?
