This book is great and fun to read. There were so many laugh out loud moments in this book. The world is ending, but it doesn't mean you can't make a game of it. ( )

I love monsters...zombies, giants, mutants....doesn't matter what kind. If a story has a monster in it....I'm gonna read it. Even when the book (technically) is written with children in mind, and not 50 year old grandmas. My teenager doesn't even get embarrassed anymore when I leave the library with stuff like "The Goo that Ate My Teacher.'' I can always say I'm checking it out for my grand kids (The closest one lives several states away....but shhhhh...don't tell). In all actuality, there are many, many adults who also enjoy children's books. For me, the stories are wonderful because I can get a favorite genre fix without the heavy themes and more adult situations. I review a lot of adult horror, thriller and suspense novels....and after a really gruesome tale, I just need something more....fun. Something that doesn't weigh me down. That's when I turn to books like this. I call it palate cleansing. Sometimes I just really, really need a fun story about middle school students surviving monsterpocalypse in their tree house. All the trauma of screwed up killer gone.....some nice laughs and smiles. Perfect.

This book is awesome! Seriously. I listened to the audio book version...but I also had the hardback on my TBR shelf. The physical book is full of fun illustrations and caricatures of the characters...it really adds to the humor. But the audio book is a fun experience too. Narrator Robbie Daymond gives a great performance! His voice is PERFECT!! This book would be great in a class room setting to coax reluctant readers or for supplemental reading. Kids who are more visual would love the illustrations in the physical book, and those who respond to a story teller would really enjoy the audio. Lots of action. Funny situations. Plus zombies and monsters. Although the kids are fighting the monsters, the emphasis is on their relationships, problem solving, and the humor. The book is not scary. Even the faint of heart where zombies are concerned could read this book with no nightmares.

The basics: The monsters took over 42 days ago. Jack Sullivan has been hiding out in his tree house ever since. Most people were zombified or evacuated to the west. Slowly Jack builds a group of the Last Kids left....and they hold out against the monsters at their fortified tree house.

Fun book! I will definitely be reading the rest of this series! There are 4 books in the series, with a 5th book -- The Last Kids and the Midnight Blade -- coming out in September 2019. I have also heard that Netflix is going to do an original series based on the books (Publishers: could you maybe STOP putting huge white and red stickers on the front covers of books about upcoming film versions? It really messes up the cover art -- stick in a postcard ad, or wrap the book in plastic wrap with the sticker attached, or use a REMOVABLE sticker if you really must plonk it right in the middle of the artwork! Glad you are venturing forth into Netflix/other film versions.....but I hate stickers on my books....sticky spots were they were removed....or torn/damaged covers from trying to remove a permanent huge white and red sticker from the front of my book!) I will definitely watch the Netflix series! :) The first season of the animated show will premiere on Netflix September 17th, 2019!!

I highly recommend this book. The story is FUN! It made me smile and even laugh out loud, totally erasing the dark fog in my brain following a review of a pretty heavy adult thriller. On to the next book in the series -- The Last Kids on Earth and the Zombie Parade. ( )

This is a cute, funny story. Told from Jack's point of view during the "end of the world" it's entertaining and well done. I will be continuing with the series. ( )

Excellent!!! I had such a blast reading this one and afterwards had a lot of fun watching the animated show on Netflix with my family. I absolutely love this series and will definitely read and watch the rest of this. Both the book and show are pretty close to the same. Very small differences but totally worth enjoying both. ( )

Plot Summary: It's an ordinary day at school: Dirk is bullying Quint when the monsters and zombies show up. Jack and Quint manage to escape into the woods and decide to go back to their respective homes. Jack's foster family bolted out of there without him. Quint's parents were out of town and his babysitter was turned into a zombie pretty quickly. With their walkies, they reconnect after forty-two days. Quint is using his science to help build and protect, and Jack is determined to find June Del Toro, his crush he saw walking back into the school on that fateful day. Will they ever find her? Will they survive the monsters and zombie apocalypse?

Setting: unknown suburban area

Characters:
Jack Sullivan - 13 y/o, foster kid, been to 10 schools in his life, currently living with a family who only wants him to help with their yard work
Quint - Jack's first and only best friend, gives Jack one walkie so they can communicate since neither of their families will give them cell phones, loves science, inventor
Dirk - typical bully who steals sandwiches and uses his strength and size to intimidate
June Del Toro - Jack's crush

Recurring Themes: survival, humor, friendship, belonging, family, home, foster care, apocalypse, science, bullying

Controversial Issues:
Jack makes a few comments about women, I may not have exact phrases correct because I listened to the audio and couldn't mark the page
-"legs for days"
-"where are you hiding the girls"
-must rescue damsel in distress and doesn't realize til very end she didn't need rescuing

Personal Thoughts: Decent amount of humor, but totally predictable plot and basic, stereotyped characters. Sure, it's a zombie and monster apocalypse, but so many things are so unfeasible it is laughable. Digging a moat, fighting the monsters when so many others have not, driving for the first time fairly well with no instruction, picking up a ping pong table plus other items from Home Depot and so much more. I think kids will love it but I'm not impressed.

Genre: apocalyptic novel, fantasy, tall tale (Dirk has impossible strength - picks up ping pong table and uses as a shield, opens locked door, digs a moat that becomes their swimming pool)

Pacing: fast-medium, decent amount of zombie and monster action but also a decent amount of character development and description
