What I wouldn't give for the imagination of an 8yr. old.
Last night my youngest daughter started writing her new novel. Chapter one begins with a young girl walking through a rough town with her brand new puppy. Some tough boys hassle her but the puppy attacks, you see this book is about Vampire Puppies. The girl gets a little older and when she is 13 she joins the spy academy (as you do) and comes up with some ideas for using the vampire puppies.
I'm looking forward to reading this one, it will also feature zombie snails, which become fast when they're infected as zombies, rather than slow. Oh, and her main setting is a graveyard pet shop!
I'm also going to make a zombie recommendation (I never thought I'd hear myself say that). I downloaded The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan Kindle edition to my iPhone. This book was mesmerising, I found the wistful style almost poetic, not at all what I would expect from a post-apocolyptic story that would also be able to horrify me most of the way through. I likes :-)
