A hilarious and freaky new series from David Grimstone, featuring a one-armed zombie, a werewolf with a difference and a renegade arm with a mind of its own.


Undead Ed and the Howling Moon by David Grimstone

Forget everything you've ever seen or heard about werewolves, zombies and vampires because Ed Bagley's going to tell you the single most important fact you'll ever learn: BEING UNDEAD SUCKS ...especially if you're a kid. On his 13th birthday, Ed Bagley is hit by a truck and killed. But things go from tragic to freaky when Ed wakes in the sewers beneath the town of Mortlake with only a note from his missing left arm to explain that he's undead: a zombie, a walking corpse whose skin rots and oozes. And as if all this misfortune wasn't enough, there's a lunatic killer on the loose in Mortlake ...and only Ed can stop him.


Gruesome, full of body bits, and very funny! Reading Zone I enjoyed this book so much, that I am looking forward to the sequel. First News The quality shows no signs of sliding. Bournemouth Daily Echo Nigel Baine's illustrations complement the text perfectly. Independent on Sunday

About the Author

David Grimstone

David Grimstone was born in Margate on 25th January 1978. When he was a boy, he was often accused of daydreaming and 'drifting off' during classes. He once let in five goals during a PE football match because he thought he'd seen a sparrow-hawk and went to investigate. The only two lessons he loved at school were English and History. David lives in Kent with his wife, Chiara, and their son Sebastian.
