Last Kids on Earth and the Zombie Parade by Max Brallier


Series: The Last Kids on Earth (Book 2)

Link to Review of Book 1:


 Title: The Last Kids on Earth and the Zombie Parade

Author: Max Brallier

Published: 2016

Genre: Dystopia

Grade Level: 3rd-5th

Warning: Gross monsters and zombies

Audiobook - Do not get an audiobook! It relies heavily on illustrations to help tell the story!

Blurb (from goodreads):

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?

My Scores:

Writing Style: Top Notch

Characters: Memorable

Plot: Enjoyable

Overall: Obsessed

Overall, I'm still obsessed with the series. The writing style is just as funny and engaging. The characters are just as memorable even though we don’t get quite as much development (the element of surprise being gone). I love the introduction of the new villains; they were duly mysterious and creepy. The plot is a classic sci-fyi arc, which is enjoyable. However, I would have preferred a slight continuation of the main plot arc from book one, so I’m hoping it will continue in book three. We shall see!

Goodreads Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
