Philip Ardagh reviews The Enemy by Charlie Higson


The enemy in Charlie Higson's new series of children's books, beginning with The Enemy, aren't zombies in the truest sense. They aren't dead. But, that minor detail aside, they exhibit many traditional zombie characteristics: they look as though they're falling to bits, are shabbily dressed, not too bright, amble about in disorganised groups, are genuinely frightening, and they eat children. You see, in Higson's post-apocalyptic London, it's the adults who have been affected by some dreadful something, and the children - who are unaffected - are their prey. PHILIP ARDAGH
