The Last Kids on Earth and the Midnight Blade

Max Brailler, illus by Douglas Holgate


Now a major Netflix series!

'Terrifyingly fun! Max Brallier's The Last Kids on Earth delivers big thrills and even bigger laughs.' - Jeff Kinney, author of Diary of a Wimpy Kid.

Wimpy Kid meets The Walking Dead in this hilarious series packed with monsters and zombies.

Surviving their first winter after the Monster Apocalypse was no easy feat, yet Jack and his buddies waste no time springing to action against some of the nastiest, most evil monsters around. When Jack discovers his Louisville Slicer has new, otherworldly powers, he's thrown into epic training to find out what kind of destruction the blade can wield. But between fighting off zombies, fleeing from strange, glowy Vine-Thingies erupting from the ground, and squeezing in a video game session or two, there's barely time left to figure out what's wrong with their buddy, Dirk, who's been acting weird any time he's around the undead. When an unexpected villain appears, can Jack and his friends save themselves -- and the rest of the world -- from cosmic domination?

The fifth book in a hilarious monster adventure series. With fresh, funny illustrations on every page, this is perfect for fans of comics and graphic novels aged 8 and over.
