Zack was going to the museum with his class and his social studies teacher, Mr. Gatkes. They were talking about Egypt. Then Zack saw a woman and a black cat. The cat scratched him on the arm. One morning, Zack grew pointy ears and whiskers. Zack was changing into a cat with pointy ears and whiskers. Read this book to see what happens to Zack when he is a cat.

My favorite part of the book was when Zack grew pointy ears and whiskers because it was funny and weird. The illustrator did not use any colors. I wish that the pictures were done in color. He only used black and white because he wanted to make the book scary. If I could change into an animal I would like to be a dog because it is my favorite animal.

I recommend this book to readers and audiences that like scary stuff. Other readers would like this book because Zack grew ears and whiskers and they will think that is cool. I would read the other books in the Zak Files series because I think Zack is funny and other readers will think he's funny too.
