By Mr Bryn Goodman on 29 Dec. 2015 "A truly fantastic book from a very talented writer that will appeal to children of all ages (and adults). The story moves forward at a cracking pace. There is humour which is neatly interwoven with the engaging plot. My class thoroughly enjoyed it, they were begging me to read more each day! I would highly recommend this book to all zombie fans, young and old. A great book!
This book is great.I remember Mr Sullivan writting it 3 years ago when I was in his class.
A great teacher 🙌🏻🙌🏻

A fab read
Brilliantly written. Engaging and full of clever writing techniques and vocabulary to excite children and adults and also give an example of great writing whilst the reader is enjoying the storyline and characters. As both an adviser and a parent I think it's fantastic.
An amazing book which captures children's and adults imaginations. You've go to love Matt's character Melvin!
This book is excellent, just like Mr Sullivan's Teaching. Well done Sir.
an exciting and original plot line- very well written!
A hilarious and engaging read.
A great book
As editor of the international Zombie Research Society, I was excited to review Mathew Sullivan's take on the zombie apocalypse, in the form of the wonderful children's novel "MELVIN McGEE: ZOMBIE HUNTER." I absolutely loved Melvin McGee, and your kids will too (the book is classing in at ages 8+). I guess I must be just one big kid! It’s heartwarming, exciting, tragic, and funny (I loved how the grabbles (zombies) were constantly losing body parts). There are even the occasional statements on society (told in an understated way that children would understand), like zombie-kids mindlessly flipping through their dead cellphones. Your kids might not know these societal references, by they might recognize the zombie-like behavior in many of their friends (and perhaps even in themselves). A fun read and highly recommended!
Fantastic book has you gripped from start to finish, young and old alike. The illustrations are great as well.
A fabulous, exciting read from a very talented young author.
A highly creative, engaging read - would be a deserving winner!
This is now our daughter's favourite book.
Introduced this book to my class - they loved it
I read it to our young children each night at bedtime - they cant wait to go to bed for the next instalment. As an adult I really enjoyed this book - it's would be a deserving winner.
My friends and I love this book
Great book, our children really enjoyed reading it.

I'm not surprised Mat has been nominated. Well done x
Great read from start to finish, both me and my daughter loved it
An amazing book written by an amazing author
My Year 6 pupils really enjoyed reading this book as our class reader. A really funny, fast paced and clever story that always had them asking for more. I was always greeted with a groan when it was time to put it away. Also, you can tell the author is a teacher because we even used extracts from it in our grammar work. It has been their favourite book so far this year!
