The Last Kids on Earth
The Last Kids on Earth is about four kids who survive the zombie apocalypse. Their names are Jack, Quint, Dirk and June Del Toro. Here is how it all started, 42 days ago, Jack and Quint were in a school bus. When they got on the bus, they heard screams. They looked out the window and saw zombies and monsters. Those four kids are the only ones who survived. June was still in the school, her dad was trying to save her but the guard wouldn’t let him. Later, Jack and Quint found each other and used walkie-talkies to communicate. Soon they found Dirk. Dirk didn’t want to go with them. Even though they had all the stuff that they needed. So Dirk said yes.
So they went to the tree house where they lived when the apocalypse had started. They had video games, food, drinks, and a car called Big Mama. It was equipped with an arrow turrent, bottle rocket launchers, etc, Quint, Jack and Dirk used it to defeat monsters.Quint’s #1 thing that he wants to do is save June Del Toro. When they found her, she said that she didn’t need saving. She was fine staying there. All of them tried to convince June to come with them. Then she said that they could sleep over for the night. Later, Quint found June on the roof. Quint found a trash bin full of tennis balls. She likes to throw them at the zombies. When Quint did it, he hit one of the teachers. Dirk and Jack were awake. The only reason why Jack was awake is because he has sensitive hearing. He needs earplugs so that way he can sleep.
Later that morning, June came back with them to the tree house. But first, they needed to defeat BLARG. Quint has light-up shoes, so he can drive BLARG away from Dirk, June and Jack. Then Quint got on to his monster dog. And they had to defeat BLARG at the tree house. It destroyed everything. When it was all over, they worked together to rebuild it. In the end, they had fun with a ping pong table.
I give The Last Kids on Earth 4.5 stars.
