Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

K-Gr 3-Based on O'Hara's chapter book series, this slight picture book spin-off might have a tricky time finding an audience. Tom and his best friend Pradeep are proud owners of a "big fat zombie goldfish" named Frankie. When Pradeep's little sister Sami fills in as a fishsitter, she is given a long list of instructions to follow, the most important one being to keep Frankie away from Fang, a vampire kitten. Sami takes her job seriously and draws up blueprints for a "Fishy Protection Zone," complete with booby traps and a wading pool watchtower. Despite the little girl's best precautions, Fang uses his potent power of "kitty cuteness" to convince Sami to allow them to all play together. In Jagucki's brightly colored digitally created illustrations, the action unfolds like an animated cartoon, with plenty of archenemy high jinks, such as water hose attacks, tennis ball takedowns, and basketball head bounces. After much flying of fur and fins, Sami regains control and dresses the pets up in frilly bonnets and puts them in a baby carriage together. Tom and Pradeep return to thank Sami for her efforts with an ice cream treat, while Frankie and Fang tussle some more.

Review

“A kooky, zany little story about a boy and his pet zombie goldfish, Frankie. The kids in my library are already clamoring for this book and I can't get it ready for the shelves soon enough for them. Keep up the good work” ―Wendy A. Emlinger, on Amazon.com on MY BIG FAT ZOMBIE GOLDFISH

“I saw this book on sale at Walmart, and I couldn't resist picking it up. The cover just popped out at me. It's a good sized book for young readers. I read it in one sitting, and I loved it!” ―Angela Roquet on Amazon.com on MY BIG FAT ZOMBIE GOLDFISH

“The book is packed with bonkers humour . . . Anyone who likes books by Dav Pilkey would seriously love this book.” ―Biteso, for TheGuardian.com on MY BIG FAT ZOMBIE GOLDFISH

“Finding Nemo meets Shaun of the Dead! Boys will be diving in to enjoy Mo O'Hara's two laugh-out-loud stories about an evil big brother, a best friend who comes to the rescue and an amazing zombie goldfish.” ―Lancaster Evening Post on MY BIG FAT ZOMBIE GOLDFISH

“My Big Fat Zombie Goldfish had everything a boy could want. When your first book is absolutely perfect, children do expect you to carry on the same vein. Thankfully, Mo has pulled it off again with a sequel just as good as the original.” ―The Bookbag on THE SEAQUEL

“I liked the book very much because it was extremely silly, and it had a mad zombie goldfish that did really cool things.” ―Fan review on TheGuardian.com on THE SEAQUEL

“Mo O'Hara writes stories that children can imagine themselves taking part in – and that is a large part of the magic. ” ―The Bookbag on FINS OF FURY

Originally from America, Mo moved to London because she wanted to live abroad but spoke no foreign languages. After a brief and unsuccessful stint as a serving wench at the Tower of London Mo found work as an actress and comedy performer. It was when she toured the UK as a storyteller that she started writing for kids. Mo and her big brother once brought back their goldfish from the brink of death!

Now, Mo lives in South London with her husband, her two kids and her two (slightly bitey) cats.

Mo loves singing (in choirs, in school visits and festivals with her ukulele and singing along to the Hamilton soundtrack in her kitchen). She runs and loves travelling all over the world.

Mo has toured all across the USA and the UK and has also visited schools and festivals in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
