Nathan is just getting started with his training for secret organization BUM when greasy green globs of goop start oozing from every faucet in town. Gross! When BUM asks Nathan to investigate, he and his friends Abigail and Mookie follow the trail to the smelliest place they can imagine—deep in the heart of the sewers of East Craven. And what they encounter there may end Nathan's career as a zombie spy before it has even begun….

Stool Pigeon
When the pigeon shot into our classroom, most of the boys shouted, "Whoa!" About half the girls shouted, "Eewwww!"

Our teacher, Ms. Delambre, shouted, "My goodness!"

Reviews

Praise for Goop Soup

“The first book in a promising new series introduces likable characters beset by unusual but humorous circumstances. This book will have a large following.” —School Library Journal on My Rotten Life

“The over-the-top narrative will appeal to readers who like their humor twisted, and might even have some wishing that they, too, could be a half-dead zombie.” —Publishers Weekly on My Rotten Life

“You have to love a writer who can rhyme ‘zombie' in his title. Readers will enjoy his silly/funny style of storytelling.” —New York Post on My Rotten Life

“Nathan is a delightful hero--a former semi-nerd and frequent subject of smackdowns, adventitiously turned cool customer--which, to zombies, comes naturally.” —Kirkus Reviews, a BEA/ALA Big Book Kids &YA Pick on My Rotten Life

“Master writer David Lubar effectively tempers sensitive topics with laugh-out-loud moments in this first of a series.” —Fall 2009 Kid's Indie Next List Pick on My Rotten Life
