Martin’s life changes the day his dad is killed in a car accident. No one talks about it, his mom refuses to leave the house, and his only consolation through the sleepless nights is solving difficult maths problems. Until he forms an unlikely friendship with his neighbor Vusi who dreams of making a zombie movie. The two are plunged head first into a wild adventure, pulling everyone they know along with them. Shortlisted for the Found in Translation award, it has also since been madeinto a popular film in Afrikaans.

Jaco Jacobs is the most popular and prolific children's book author in Afrikaans. He has published more than 140 books and over a million copies have been sold. Jaco is also a well-known columnist, blogger, freelance journalist and translator. He lives in Bloemfontein, South Africa.

Never too sentimental or depressing, A Good Night for Shooting Zombies strikes a perfect balance of humor and heartbreak and helps to define what friendship really means.

'For the first time in a long while we see the publication of a new Afrikaans book for teens which strikes the perfect balance between excellent language use, a good story and a philosophical flavour that will captivate youngerandolder readers.'
