"Terrifyingly fun! Delivers big thrills and even bigger laughs."--Jeff Kinney, author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Diary of a Wimpy Kid Diary of a Wimpy Kid meets The Walking Dead in this very funny post-apocalyptic graphic novel for middle-grade readers. Ever since the monster apocalypse hit town, average thirteen year old Jack Sullivan has been living in his tree house, which he's armed to the teeth with catapults and a moat, not to mention video games and an endless supply of Oreos and Mountain Dew scavenged from abandoned stores. But Jack alone is no match for the hordes of Zombies and Winged Wretches and Vine Thingies, and especially not for the eerily intelligent monster known only as Blarg. So Jack builds a team: his dorky best friend, Quint; the reformed middle school bully, Dirk; Jack's loyal pet monster, Rover; and Jack's crush, June. With their help, Jack is going to slay Blarg, achieve the ultimate Feat of Apocalyptic Success, and be average no longer! Can he do it? Told in a mixture of text and black-and-white illustration, this is the perfect book for any kid who's ever dreamed of starring in his or her own comic book or video game. And stay tuned for the sequel, The Last Kids on Earth and the Zombie Parade, out on September 6! From the Hardcover edition.

The Last Kids on Earth is about a boy and his friends surviving a monster-zombie apocalypse. The main character is thirteen year old, Jack Sullivan, who is the hero of the story. Then there is Quint Baker, the hero's best friend, and June Del Toro, the hero's love interest. I like this book because I am a fan of graphic novels, and also adventures and I like to read about things that are related to survival and post- apocalyptic events.

A funny book with some great illustrations. It's completely unbelievable, but it's also for middle schoolers, so I get it. Definitely going to continue with the series.

#BookishBingo: Set in a cabin (treehouse, actually, but I'm going with it)

ElizaMarie I‘ve considered this one. I‘m guessing you‘d recommend it? 2mo
Michollio @ElizaMarie For a middle grade book it was pretty entertaining. And it's a short read if you don't end up liking it. 2mo

I love the Friday the 13th kitty Art! I will be getting it framed soon. Your family has really made this Halloween special for me! The letter and postcard really topped it off. 🖤🖤🖤🖤

This book was recommended to me by most of the boys in my 4th grade class. I am so glad I listened to them! As a huge fan of zombies, this book was the perfect fit. I was hooked from the first page and couldn‘t put it down. It is the story of Jack, a boy whose normal life is turned into an adventure by the zombie apocalypse hitting his town. His list of missions is amazing and hilarious! I highly recommend this book! 🧟‍♀️🧟‍♂️🧟‍♀️🧟‍♂️🧟‍♀️

AsYouWish #Scarathlon #TeamStoker @TheReadingMermaid I think this fits our team theme (zombies) (edited) 3mo
LibrarianRyan They had an event for this today at BN and since everything else was rained out we Book the boys. They had a great time. 3mo
AsYouWish @LibrarianRyan The boys in my class have been obsessed with this series for a couple weeks and they kept telling me that I needed to read it. So I grabbed this one and loved it, now I have to wait until Monday to read the next one in the series. 3mo

Ok, not a “grown up” book, but my son and I have been reading this at bed time and I catch myself letting him staying up way past bedtime because I want to know what happens next. I super suggest it for anyone with kiddos, my son is 8 and loves it. Plus, word on the street is Netflix is making a series on it.

NY Times Bestseller "The Last Kids on Earth" (SF) is written by Max Brallier and illustrated by Douglas Holgate. This illustrated chapter book tells the story of Jack Sullivan who bands together with other local kids to fight the hordes of zombies that have invaded his hometown. This is a great read for IR, especially for students who like SF as opposed to RF. #lae3414sp19

dayuso1 This book can utilize UDL strategy Develop Self Assessment/Reflection (9.3) so that students can reflect on what they would do if they were in that situation. ESOL students need to be asked numerous questions to exercise higher-level thinking (ESOL 36) to understand the plot of the book. 10mo
dayuso1 The resource linked below is a TPT reading comprehension guide for the novel. Includes worksheets for students. https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/The-Last-Kids-on-Earth-Novel-Study-3... 10mo

I absolutely adored this book. While I don't usually read illustrated books (or enjoyed them) I didn't want to put this one down! I loved how our main character saw life as a video game and the video game references sounded logical, true, and something I would think up. This made it relatable and amazing. Love it!

The authors writing
The author uses a style that makes you get lost in the world. His use of illustration showing what the character's look like make it so your mind doesn't run wild thinking what they look like. And the fact that the character's don't know everything about the world add's to the story as a whole.

If, like me, you have a kid who reads well but is Very Picky and only likes books that appeal to his wacky sense of humour... can I introduce you to The Last Kids on Earth (novel with illustrations) and Secret Coders (graphic novels). My kid has devoured these and now we need more, more, more from these busy authors! 🤞🤞

Riveted_Reader_Melissa Awesome! I had the same trouble with my nephew. He loved Alcatraz vs the Evil Librarians for instance, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, and later the Series of Unfortunate Events , but had no interest in the many other that I thought would be right up his alley... no Percy Jackson or Eragon. 2y
Centique @Riveted_Reader_Melissa thanks Melissa I will try those as well! 2y

Last Kids on Earth is a Modern Fantasy graphic novel about a kids trying to survive when a zombie apocalypse this their town. This novel is great for IR. https://texasbluebonnetaward2018.wordpress.com/the-last-kids-on-earth/ provides a variety of instructional activities for the classroom.

DominiqueL I would use this novel to teach a lesson on the importance of government. Student would discuss why anarchy is bad and then work in groups to create their own survival rules. 2y
DominiqueL The UDL principles that apply are 1.3 offer alternatives for visual information, 3.2. Highlight patterns, critical features, big ideas, and relationships, 4.1 Vary the methods for response and navigation, 5.1 Use multiple media for communication, and 8.3 Foster collaboration and community. The ESOL strategies that I'd use are using small groups, slow pacing, and teaching think, pair and share strategies in cooperative groups. #UCFLAE3414F17 2y

Reading this monster apocalypse story to my 7-year-old, and I have to say, it's delightful. Sarcastic and funny with just the right amount of heart and potty humor.

This was fun. Zombies and monsters have popped up in town, and most people are either zombies or ran out of town, leaving these kids to fend for themselves. But they respond by coming up with ingenious weapons and ways to survive. Oh, and taking lots of pics and making a monsterworld bucket list! Nice almost graphic novel feel, too.

Going to be at the hospital for a bit today. The hubs is going in for a procedure. The kid has started on a new book that he got for his birthday. He mentioned it right before school ended and was really excited to get it as his early bday present yesterday! It's about kids surviving a zombie apocalypse. Not my bag but he is breezing through it. #raisingreaders #kidswhoread

This hilarious book made a quick reference to this old song. It reminded me of a group project I did in elementary school: a board game by the same title. Sharing my childhood memory and then playing the song for my kids added even more enjoyment to reading The Last Kids on Earth together. #zombies #booknerdbliss #hereforthebooks

My son liked this so much that even though he read it on his own a couple of months ago, we read it together this last week. It is clever and I agree that we need to get the sequel!
#BedtimeBookClub

Leniverse Can I ask how old your son is? Or what age bracket you recommend the book for? 3y
MeganAnn My son loved this one as well and the sequel is just as fun! 👌🏻 3y
MeganAnn @Leniverse my son is 8 and in 2nd grade and he loved it. He reads well for his age and didn't have too much trouble with it, but a slightly older reader would probably find it a bit easier to read on their own. I would say 8-12 would be a good age range depending on their reading level. 3y

Leniverse @MeganAnn Thanks. I'll keep this in mind for my zombie loving kids then. Though my 6-year old might be too young. He's also scared of his own shadow. 3y
CogsOfEncouragement @Leniverse My son is 10. Good question. This book has lots of humor to make the fact that trusted adults are gone or are now zombies. There are also larger than a building monsters to contend with. Again, told in a funny way-but a sensitive kid may not find it so funny. 3y
Leniverse @CogsOfEncouragement Okay, that sounds like something my daughter would love. She's 10 and fearless. She will find it empowering, I think. Whereas her brother will freak and focus on "the parents have become zombies?!?!" 3y
CogsOfEncouragement @leniverse The book has a few themes, one being girl power! 3y
Leniverse @CogsOfEncouragement Ih good! Def putting this down as a potential for the next Dewey's Readathon then! I always buy them something each for that. 3y

5⭐️!!! I am not usually one for post apocalyptic worlds/ zombie apocalypse books. However, I decided to give this 2017-2018 Bluebonnet Nominee a try to expand my children's literary horizons, as a librarian. Oh. My. Goodness. SO HILARIOUS!!! A quick yet delightful read- I'm sure my family thinks I'm a bit crazy with the multiple times I have laughed out loud. I mean Really. Loud. Going to start up the sequel Tuesday! #LitsyAtoZ @BookishMarginalia

When your 4th grade niece answers your question: 'Do you know of a good post-apocalyptic or distopic read?' You listen. The girl has taste. Great read. Smart illustrations. All the fun of an apocalypse without the typical hopelessness. #pank #recom #readharder #zombies #apocalypse

Very easy, quick paced read. It takes all the horror of a potential apocalypse and smashes it down into something sweet and cute though it touches on a lot of family issues and loss, if only briefly. Jack is a funny, likable main character.
