The Last Kids on Earth was a series I did not think I would have any interest in reading. However, once I got going I found I could not stop because the series was so fun. Then the series got turned into a show on Netflix and things continued to take off, toys and more! I reached out to the author, Max Brallier through Twitter and we connected. I asked him if he would like to do an interview with me for the book, The Last Kids on Earth and the Skeleton Road. He agreed and we did the interview back in early August. You can check that out below.

I asked Max if he’d get word to his publicist to send me an advanced copy of the book. It arrived on Friday and I have been quickly reading through it. The book is a fun read and a great next chapter in the whole series. I love the illustrations by Douglas Holgate. I’ll be creating a video review of the book soon, hopefully in time for the September 15th release date of the book.

I missed my chance to meet Max at An Unlikely Story a while back but this week he’s doing a virtual event with Jeff Kinney, Author of Diary of a Wimpy Kid and owner of An Unlikely Story. I pre-ordered another copy of the book and will attend the virtual event on Thursday night. Still won’t be meeting Max in person but this will be cool.

Read to Me, Dad Review! An Interview with The Last Kids On Earth Author Max Brallier

I had the pleasure of interviewing Max Brallier this morning as part of my Read to Me, Dad Reviews! series on YouTube. This is a series where I talk to authors or review books that would be great for other dads to share with their kids. I’ve been wanting to chat with Max for a while now and we were finally able to nail down a date and time. We spoke this morning after work and then I went to bed, got up and edited the video.

Max Brallier is the author of the series, The Last Kids on Earth. This is a fun series about four kids in the Monster Apocalypse. The first two books have been turned into a series on Netflix with the first book as a longer full length special and the second book as a 10 episode season. I cannot wait for more seasons to drop and also for Max’s next book, The Last Kids on Earth and the Skeleton Road. I’ve read through the six books that have been published. We discussed how June’s Wild Flight, the most recent book started as a shorter book but ended up being full length but still counts as 5 1/2 or so, I am a bit confused about that as the book is not numbered as #6 in the series. You can learn all about that and more in the video below.

And if things went smoothly all the time I wouldn’t be me. Normally I record using Skype but for some reason Skype was not pulling in Max’s feed. So we used Zoom. I’ve never recorded an interview using Zoom before and so I forgot that I should pin Max’s video for that to be the only thing recorded. So there are lots of cuts and edits to the video above. I hope that it all looks smooth.
