Minecraft comes to the real world! Stevie is happily building his treehouse when night begins to settle. Oooopppsss! He’s suppose to be home by now. But he has to fight his way past a creeper then a mob of zombies! Things don’t go smoothly and he feels like the worst mob fighter ever. The next day he spots a portal and he takes his chances, popping out of a computer screen on the other end into Maison’s bedroom. The sixth grader and Stevie quickly become friends, which is a good thing because th ...more

I received a copy of this book for free in exchange for an honest and thoughtful review.

This was such a fun read! While my nephews are huge fans of Minecraft and I worked with teens as a young adult librarian, I really didn't have much understanding of world prior to picking up this book. When I received the invitation to join in on the blog tour, I thought it would be a perfect opportunity to explore what Minecraft was about con

Stevie tried to prove himself to his dad by building a treehouse.Stevie failed and got hurt by an explosion by a mob called a creeper. The next day Stevie stumbled upon a portal that lead him to this world. The portal Stevie found in the forest which was actually a computer and when Stevie went through he couldn't return to Minecraft because he was being chased by a spider. Stevie met a girl named Maison and went to school with her and Maison left the computer on so the zombie mobs came through ...more

This is the best Minecraft fiction I've read to date. The competition isn't tough, but this one had an interesting premise (what would happen if a portal opened up between Minecraft and the real world and people and mobs could pass between them?) and was written well enough to keep both my and my seven-year-old engaged.

Kohlton picked this up at his library at school. He was hooked the entire time which says something as he is not the type of kid to sit and listen to a book being read. He is gonna look for another one today. He is really excited.

A great integration of the world of Minecraft and the real world.

Talking as someone who works in a school, the author obviously doesn't know how schools work though, with the character being taken straight into the classroom without a visitor's pass haha.

I thought the book was a one of a kind because not many books have both our world and Minecraft people

It's great if you're a young Minecraft fan. I particularly liked the combination of the real world with the game.

3/17/2016 ** I used this during my Minecraft Camp (spring break intersession). There is a fabulous chapter early in the book of a description of a human from the perspective of a Minecraft character (fingers are little pink squid-like things; the moon is round, not square like it should be).

This is the best of the Skypony published books set in the Minecraft world.

The story is a bit light on necessary details in places, but that probably wouldn't bother the age-group this series is aimed at. I like a little more explanation of what's going on rather than the expectation that I'm going to just go with it. I didn't read it for me, however, but to see if it was a series worth bothering with for my Minecraft-loving son.

This is a fun twist on a portal fantasy where Stevie from Minecraft ends up in the human world and becomes friends with Maison. Together they deal with bullies and fight enemies.

A quick and fun read that's perfect for players of Minecraft. The only violence fits the world of Minecraft and the writing is fun and engaging. I picked up my copy from Skyhorse publishers at ALA Midwinter 2015.
