Living in a tree house with your three best friends after the monster apocalypse hits town is pretty awesome. That’s how thirteen-year-old Jack Sullivan feels. But when zombies start mysteriously disappearing, Jack and his friends suspect that an extremely evil force is at work. As they search for the missing undead, the kids also complete a Bestiary (that’s a fancy way of saying “monster notebook”), quest heroically (come on, is there any other way to quest?), go to the mall, encouter all sorts of insane new creatures, and pick up a zombie butler named Alfred while they’re at it. Now all they have to do is save the entire world and then they can call it a day.
t’s been forty-two days since the monster apocalypse hit town and pretty much everyone ran away or got zombified. Average thirteen-year-old Jack Sullivan is holed up 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 Dozers and Winged Wretches and Zombies, and especially not for the eerily intelligent gargantuan menace known only as Blarg. Jack needs to build a team of whatever kids he can find, and whichever monsters will show him loyalty. With their help, Jack is going to slay Blarg, prove himself the ultimate post-apocalyptic action hero, and be average no longer! Can he do it?
It’s the first winter after the Monster Apocalypse. For Jack and his buddies, that means sled catapults, epic snowball battles, and one monstrous Christmas celebration. But their winter wonderland turns dark when a villainess begins hunting them. And this villainess is different—she’s a human.
