Description-

  • A New York Times and USA Today bestelling series, with one and a half million copies in print!
    "Terrifyingly fun! Delivers big thrills and even bigger laughs."—Jeff Kinney, author of the #1
    New York Times bestseller Diary of a Wimpy Kid


    The zombies are disappearing. This might seem like a good thing, since zombies eat your brains, but normal human kid Jack Sullivan is suspicious. He keeps hearing an eerie shrieking noise that seems to be almost summoning the zombies—but to where, and for what (probably) foul purpose?

    Jack, his three best friends (maybe the only people left on Earth), and their pet monster Rover need to get to the bottom of this. Along the way they encounter a lot more than they bargained for, including a giant Wormungulous, a pizza parlor monster hangout, an ancient evil who destroys worlds, and a stereo system that is totally the bomb. Can Jack figure out why the zombies are vanishing . . . before he and his friends are next?

Excerpts-

  • From the book This is my moment.

    The moment of Jack Sullivan, Post-Apocalyptic Action Hero.

    The Wormungulous will be upon us in seconds. Its massive form is barreling forward, turning everything in its path to dust. And I can't let my friends fall into the category of "dust." That's my biggest fear. That's what keeps me up at night (well, that and thoughts of Selena Gomez—I hope she's safe somewhere!).

    I step toward the beast like some sort of samurai ninja Jedi.

    "Jack, what are you doing?" June screams.

    "June, Dirk, Quint. Get back," I say. "Behind me."

    "I'll try to open the gate into Sears," Dirk says. "If you can slow it down, maybe we won't all die today."

    Thirteen-year-old Jack Sullivan and his crew of monster-fighting besties are fresh off their victorious battle against the evil Blarg, but there's no rest for the weary in the middle of a Monster Apocalypse. First, Joe's Pizza has become the local monster hangout. And second, the zombies seem to be disappearing. Thankfully, the white boy, his not-so-secret Latina love, June Del Toro, his African-American, science-nerd best friend, Quint, and pre-apocalypse bully-turned-ally Dirk, a large white boy who loves to garden, befriend a man-monster who might have the answers to everything. Equal parts humor, adventure, and warmth, the book offers fans of the series and new readers alike an entirely agreeable outing. Jack's witty narration and Holgate's pitch-perfect illustrations make for a terrific read that's particularly well suited for middle-grade boys who might otherwise be reluctant to pick up a book. There are plenty of foul-smelling, brain-sucking monsters and gizmos and gadgets to delight, but at its core, this is a story about friendship. Orphaned at birth and raised by a foster family he describes as jerks, Jack has always longed for a family of his own. Now that he has one, the only thing scarier than the monsters is the thought of losing them. An apocalyptic adventure with a whole lot of heart. (Horror. 8-12)

    Gr 3-6-Readers met 13-year-old abandoned foster kid-turned-monster slayer Jack Sullivan and his adolescent makeshift army in The Last Kids on Earth. In this excellent sequel, the zombies are mysteriously disappearing. As the zombies walk in droves toward a shrieking sound, their brains are being sucked out of their skulls. While no fan of the undead, Jack and his squad set out to solve the mystery. New alliances are formed and trusts are broken, culminating in an all-out monster brawl to save their world. The continuation of this hybrid series capitalizes on gross-out fun. The realistic writing style keeps the narrative moving at a fast pace, while the frenzied pencil artwork supports its humorous tone. But what distinguishes this adventure is the character development. The members work through their fears of loss, abandonment, and loneliness to unite as a family. The language is sophisticated, geared toward readers who enjoy rousing adventures. The open ended conclusion allows for the possibility of more exciting exploits. A gallery highlighting various nefarious creatures is an added treat. VERDICT For fans of the first book, this sequel does not disappoint. This series is a must-have for middle grade collections.-Sada Mozer, Los Angeles Public Library
