The Enemy Quotes
No catches, no fine print just unconditional book loving for your children with their favourites saved to their own digital bookshelf. Elizabeth Laird. Valentina Giannella. Written by Charlie Higson. A thrilling story of survival against the odds in a world in which adults have been killed or brain-crazed leaving only children under fourteen and with no one to look after them. How a bunch of children survive as they travel across the dangerous city trying to find a safe place is thrilling; how they survive the terrifying zombies is spine chilling.
A terrible disease has struck everyone over the age of sixteen, leaving them either dead or a decomposing, flesh-eating creature. The action starts in a boarding school just outside London where all the teachers have turned into zombies. A few kids survive and travel by bus into the city. The bus driver, an adult named Greg, seems to be unaffected by the disease. Then he begins to show the dreaded signs: outer blisters and inner madness.

However, the approach that Charlie Higson takes in our April book of the month, The Dead, is somewhat different. Instead of sending all the mummies and daddies away, on unexpected foreign holidays or overseas business postings, he creates a world in which everyone over the age of 14 is consumed by a plague that turns them into deformed, demented and droolingly bloodthirsty zombies. With the emphasis very much on the blood and the thirsty. Or, rather, non-people getting killed. Charlie Higson: why would kids read books if their parents never do? Family Book Club: Soft toy reveals a much harder truth.
