Read full description of the books:
Much to my father's dismay I was always drawn to murder mysteries. Although I had many girly interests like Barbies, puppies and kitties, and dreams of being a Princess...I also had a morbid side at a young age -nothing scary for the average parent but as a psychiatrists daughter I was always under a microscope. Is it normal for a girl of 12 to discuss that the perfect murder weapon would be an icicle?... or appropriate that as a young teen I brought up that the ideal time to kill someone would be right after a natural disaster? Probably not, but I always found such things fascinating. After reading THE UNDERTAKER'S GONE BANANAS I added...Wouldn't being an undertaker be a wonderful job for a murderer? It would be veeeeeeeery easy to get rid of the body.
Bobby Perkins lives in the Century Towers on the 24th floor with his parents. His best friend Laurie is waaaaaaay down on the 3rd. Being a fairly new building there are a lot of vacancies and not much to amuse the teens on their summer break. When the Hulka's move into 24G- Bobby is quite excited, but excitement turns to fear when one morning, while his parents are on vacation, Bobbie thinks he may have just witnessed Mr Hulka killing his wife. What is even more frightening is that he can't seem to convince anyone but Laurie that he did.
THE UNDERTAKER'S GONE BANANAS is my favorite book from my early teens. I have read it numerous times, and always go back to it even as an adult. Luckily for me, my family, and those around me, I never turned to the dark side...but I still always enjoy reading about those who have.

Read information about the authorPaul Zindel was an American author, playwright and educator.
In 1964, he wrote The Effect of Gamma Rays on Man-in-the-Moon Marigolds, his first and most successful play. The play ran off-Broadway in 1970, and on Broadway in 1971. It won the 1971 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. It was also made into a 1972 movie by 20th Century Fox. Charlotte Zolotow, then a vice-president at Harper & Row (now Harper-Collins) contacted him to writing for her book label. Zindel wrote 39 books, all of them aimed at children or young adults. Many of these were set in his home town of Staten Island, New York. They tended to be semi-autobiographical, focusing on teenage misfits with abusive or neglectful parents. Despite the often dark subject matter of his books, which deal with loneliness, loss, and the effects of abuse, they are also filled with humor. Many of his novels have wacky titles, such as My Darling, My Hamburger, or Confessions of A Teenage Baboon.
The Pigman, first published in 1968, is widely taught in American schools, and also made it on to the list of most frequently banned books in America in the 1990s, because of what some deem offensive language.
