Sam Swann's Movie Mysteries: Zombie Dawn!!! by Tanya Landman, Daniel Hunt


Sam Swann's Movie Mysteries: Zombie Dawn!!! by Tanya Landman, Daniel Hunt

Samuel Swann's dad, special effects make-up artist to the stars, always takes Sam with him when he's working on location. Which is pretty cool. Movie sets are fun places to hang out - and you learn plenty, so that's the home schooling box ticked. However, when Sam and his pack brother Watson head for the backwoods of Romania for the filming of Zombie Dawn!!, what begins as a seemingly dull film shoot turns into something else entirely. Throw in a spoiled seven-year-old Hollywood megastar, a haunted castle and a horde of flesh-eating zombies and suddenly life gets a whole lot more exciting!


Funny, frightening and just a little bit gruesome Scotsman Magazine

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
