To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I should mainly appreciate the books illustration and drawings. The story was good and it's the best graphic comic I have ever read. There are six different varieties of comics which have six different color combinations and beautiful colors.
My almost 10 y/o son got this in about 3 hours ago and he says he is already finished. He LOVES it. He insisted I get the hard copy for his collection. My son reads A LOT (up to 4 books a week if I let him) and he loves reading through it first to share with me and his dad in different voices later. He is on page 25 going through it with me. *Yes, I'm listening-ish*
Okay what he likes: all of the art styles of the comics. He loves comic books and wants to write comic books or create video games when he grows up. (I use to roll my eyes until I saw how old the ones who work for Disney are. Why be mad about something that has a kid reading and writing?) He loves the storyline and is breaking it down for me. He has every single book and goes to the old ones to explain other things to me. It's so cute.
What I love: I love the art styles! My son and husband both like Lorena Alvarez Gomez's artwork the best. I like them all. They're each unique, but the colors of Anoosha Syed caught my eye. It just makes my heart happy to see collaborations. We see women artists, artists of colors, names that some people would think are hard to pronounce. I just love it. My son looks up everything and will read books from the same author if he finds their work intriguing. Same with artists. I will forever buy the books from this series as long as they are made. Thank goodness for the stimulus, lol.
I recommend this for any child who likes video games, fantasy, world building, adventure, etc. stories and such.
Fun adventures full of the usual humor, action, and just enough feeling. It's great to see the kids in color and rendered by some different artists as well. Not to be missed for fans of The Last Kids on Earth!
I would love to give this book 5 stars but I was disappointed to realize that for book 7 of the series, they went away from the standard writing format and made this book in more of a comic book format. My eight year old son LOVES this series and even pre-ordered book 7 with his allowance. I’ve always preferred these books over many of the others because it was in a standard writing format with paragraphs, complete sentences and correct grammar....but they have decided to jump ship and the entire book is written in comic book format. My kid is happy with it so that is why I’m still giving it 4 stars.
My 4th grade son: “It’s got good stories, but it’s not the same. How the story is told is different because the main character, Jack, is the narrator on the other books. In this one, each character tells a story they made up to tell one another. He would still r read it again. Said there’s good action.
My son gave the book 4/5 stars. For reference, I asked him what a 5star book was and he said “Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.”
I would prefer my son read traditional novels rather than graphic novels. However, I read the first Last Kids on Earth with my son, and I was impressed with how creative the books are.
