Grand Prize Winner Max M.'s review:
“This book is one of my favorite books that I ever read! It pairs action with funniness. It also has amazing illustrations so that I can see the action firsthand! If a zombie apocalypse ever happens, I will be ready because this book tells it all. I also like how instead of starring bloody, scarred grown-ups with big weapons and lots of scary parts, it stars four 6th graders who always wanted an adventure. I knew that this was an awesome book just by looking at the cover! I love this book and whoever reads it will love it!”
Taylor K.'S review:
“Jack thinks that being one of the last kids on Earth is great, playing real-life Mario Cart, and fighting zombies! All is great until a sudden evil comes along that Jack calls Nightmare King. I love this story! It is very action-packed, and very funny too! The most interesting part to me is when they figure out they might not be the last. No spoilers! I think that the general mood of the book is funny. It has lots of funny parts that really lighten your mood. The character I can relate to Jack, because he was afraid of losing his friends, and that’s like how I am, I like my friends a lot, but when they are in a different class it is hard to hang out with them! This did not remind me of any other book because it was so unique! I think someone who likes action and mystery would like this book. I think the author chose the title very well. It goes perfectly with the situation. And I love the cover! Epic!!!”
Jace H.'s review:
“The Last Kids on Earth is one of the most legendary books I have ever read. It’s about Jack Sullivan, an average thirteen-year-old who is living in his treehouse during the Monster Apocalypse. He recruits three kids: Quint Baker, June Del Toro, and Dirk Savage. Together they fight off zombies, Winged Wretches, Dozers, and Vine-Thingies. This book is awesome, cool, and epic in many ways. If you love any action/adventure books, you will LOVE The Last Kids On Earth.”
