The Lovereading4Kids comment

If you are new to the world of Minecraft gaming or know someone who is then these books are a terrific addition to this online gaming sensation but in book form. And, according to some of the gaming fans, the books are "as awesome as the game itself". In addition, these Minecraft books are a great way to get books into the hands of kids who are reluctant readers, many of whom are likely to be avid gamers.

Minecraft is a BAFTA award winning online gaming sensation with over 41 million registered users. This handbook will help the Minecraft novice - with tips from Minecraft experts, as well as creator Notch himself, this is the definitive guide to how to survive your first few days in Minecraft.
