In Search of the Fog Zombie is the first book in the Science Camp Mysteries from Graphic Universe. The topic covered in this issue is matter.
The book starts with a brief definition of what is matter then jumps in with the Rayez siblings heading to camp. The story does get stilted now and again with a bubble of information but makes the book a wonderful teaching tool.
The Rayez siblings meet up with other children at the camp and soon they are on a scavenger hunt, following clues to uncover exactly what makes the sounds at night. Rumor around the camp is that a fog zombie wanders the grounds looking for stray campers.
The story is not frightening but will appeal to the darker side of story interests. This is a great way to introduce science topics to grade school aged children. The story was entertaining. The graphics drawn in a very cartoon style with rich colors. The story is a little science heavy but interesting. There are a few lessons in the story line but two additional experiments are included at the end.
This book reminds me of a PBS show which is not a bad thing. I liked the characters and the story. I can’t wait to try some of the experiments with my son. I hope I get the opportunity to read more of the series.
