Book 3 in the Speed Bump and Slingshot Misadventures illustrated chapter book series starring two slacker friends on a frightful odyssey through a zombie-filled forest!

Speed Bump and Slingshot investigate a potential zombie outbreak in their neck of the forest. As newly minted members of the Eagle Scouts, they're doing their best to be brave, but when a creepy crow confirms their suspicions, these chicken-hearted birds lose their cool. To make matters worse—they're not just zombie-birds, they're ZOMBIE-BUGS! Can these hesitant heroes cast their fears aside and face the cicadas newly risen from the underworld? Or will the zombie-bugs conquer all and transform Speed Bump and Slingshot into the undead?

Find out in Night of the Living Zombie Bugs, the third installment of this hilarious series from internationally syndicated cartoonist Dave Coverly (author of Dogs Are People, Too and illustrator of The Very Inappropriate Word.)

"Dave Coverly is ridiculously funny and clever and creative. I'm jealous of his bird brain." —Stephan Pastis, New York Times-bestselling author of the Timmy Failure series

"Coverly’s drawings are full of visual jokes, and the narrative is packed with playful language. . . . Clever, imaginative, and precisely targeted to its audience, this new series is sure to please." —Booklist

"Filled with subtle irony, wordplay, and gentle pokes at life, the text is accompanied by appealingly large, cartoon-style, black-and-white line drawings . . . This story will have students laughing out loud and reluctant readers asking for the sequel." —School Library Journal

“The jokes and birdy banter come fast and furious . . . and should keep readers flying through the pages.” —Publishers Weekly

"Both [pictures and text] are liberally festooned with gags, sight gags . . . and puns." —Kirkus Reviews
