"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 then grab the sequel, The Last Kids on Earth and the Zombie Parade, now a New York Times bestseller!

        I have watched the series, it is very funny and very cool. It is about a normal kid (whose name is Jack Sullivan) who is an orphan and keeps on moving from place to place and family to family, but then a portal from many dimensions and planets popped up in his school with zombies! After a few days, it became an apocalypse but one day when he was looking for a screwdriver to fix his walkie-talkie, he encountered a big monster that he called Blarg, he tried to defeat the monster then the monster was about to eat him, but that was the moment Jack hit Blarg in the eye with a broken baseball bat! That's all I can say for now. Read the book or watch the series if you want to see or read the whole story.

            I got this book for my birthday and I read it in 2 days because I love reading and this book was really good. There are also movies of these series of books and if you're interested in in "The Last Kids on Earth" but don't like reading then you should watch the movies. I have not gotten the second book " The Last Kids on Earth Monster Parade " but when I do I will write a review for it! Please follow me if you agree! Thank You!
