Norman Babcock has a special gift – he can see and talk to dead people. Of course no-one believes him except his overweight friend Neil. Norman and Neil are both bullied and tormented at school by Alvin and his friends and they get called names like ‘freak’ and ‘fatty’. Norman is glad to discover that his Uncle Prenderghast also has the same gift as he does, to talk to dead people, but is dismayed to find out that the town is in great danger because of a curse that was placed on it over 300 years ago.
It’s now up to Norman to undo the curse to prevent the town from being destroyed. Things don’t go according to plan and get even worse when many more zombies are awoken from their graves and start to cause a lot more damage to the town.
