This is absolutely going to be a must-read for anyone who loves Minecraft, but especially middle grade and early YA readers! As someone who has loved Minecraft for a long time but hasn't played it very recently, reading this totally made me want to dive into a new game. It's such a fun story, and it adds in some great additional elements, like how hard moving to a new place is, the way distance can affect friendships (and what we can do to help our friends not feel alone or neglected), and how v ...more

I can’t rate this because I don’t know/care enough about Minecraft to determine its value. But my 3rd grader asked me to read it. Underneath the gaming stuff is a cute story about new and old friendships.

if you enjoy middle grade graphic novels and playing minecraft you need to read this!! it’s so quick to read and the art is soooo pretty.

So glad I was pressed into reading this by 9 and 10 year olds because wrapped up in the Minecraft package is a charming friendship story with queer characters!!

Graley’s art is always cute but the story and characters, their “adventures” and interactions? Dull and unimaginative. Wish I’d have waited to get his at the library instead of rushing out for it for our son as soon as it was published. MEH.

David is net verhuisd en voelt zich nog niet thuis op zijn nieuwe school. Gelukkig heeft hij weer internet en kan hij op avontuur met zijn oude vrienden in de wereld van Minecraft. Ze bouwen aan een prachtig fort, verslaan een paar flinke monsters, en besluiten op weg te gaan naar de End om de Enderdraak te verslaan. Maar spelen zijn vrienden nou verder zonder hem?

Een vrolijk en vooral avontuurlijk stripverhaal over David en zijn belevenissen in Minecraft. Met veel leuke herkenbare details vanu
Alright. For me personally this is a 3 at most. Mainly because I honestly have so many reservations about kids getting most of their social interaction via a video game. I also don't find the adventures within Minecraft particularly interesting. What did I expect though when this is a graphic novel literally about the game Minecraft?

What I do know though is that I know several kids that would greatly enjoy this book! And it had many positive aspects. The diverse cast of characters of every race

Chose to read this since graphic novels are popular and I was trying to pick out books for my brothers kids (think 5th grader). Minecraft is popular and the book had high ratings as well as being recommended as summer reading for kids that might not be that interested in reading.
This graphic novel literally about the game Minecraft. The graphics were nice. I really liked the page creation info after the story finished! The message about new and old friends was good ... "like how hard moving to

Read to my 5 year old who loves anything Minecraft. We're in a few novels right now, so it's nice having a book with pictures. Although I wouldn't say it's age appropriate, having the pictures is a nice addition, as the other chapter books we read are also not age appropriate and don't have photos. Side note... Why no Minecraft books for K-2? We read this in one sitting on my Kindle for tablet. Awesome drawings and a good story about relationships and a sweet group of friends. Interesting choice ...more

Pretty good, although I have very limited Minecraft knowledge (=PARENT) I was able to follow the hero's quest okay.

I liked that the girls were the adventurers and the boys were happier at the base, working on building things. It seemed to me that they were a bit too young to be asking each other on "a date." On a closer inspection of the text, the kids' ages aren't ever specifically mentioned. I just assumed they were 3rd-5th grades. What do I know?

I read this for my library's first online kids

My 7 year old son loved this, and I enjoyed reading it to him even though I have no interest in Minecraft. I didn't know anything about the controversy surrounding it, but it wasn't a big deal to me or my son. He said, "Dad, I didn't know girls could go on a date with each other," and I said, "Yep, they can" and we kept reading. I was all ready for some great conversations or questions, but he didn't bring it up again. I wish I could say the same about Minecraft. :(

Quick and Easy read—probably easier if you play Minecraft and know all the terms they are talking about. It’s clear this was meant for someone who is well versed in the game. As someone who doesn’t play Minecraft, it was difficult for me to care about anything they were talking about. I’ll have to see what my sister thinks and give a rating based on her opinions.

No rating because it wouldn't be fair. I wasn't very interested in their journey, and I thought Tyler was being a bit unreasonable (but thankfully not a brat). There are some fun cartoony moments, but I think if I had played Minecraft, I would have enjoyed this more.

Cute book about how a boy is able to spend time with old friends online playing Minecraft after he moves away.

I actually thought the information about drawing and selecting panels was extremely interesting and valuable. It provides an opportunity for a lot of discussion.

Super cute graphic novel. I think this would be good for most kids who are into gaming and are trying to get into reading (or if you're trying to get them into reading). Anyone who plays Minecraft should enjoy this. I loved it just based on Minecraft memories. :)

I thought this was a cute story. I can't imagine enjoying this if you're not familiar with Minecraft. There is a brief subplot that felt forced and extraneous to me, but young readers might enjoy this book.

Two girls dating in a graphic novel aimed at children. Ridiculous. No more of these.

A fun read that focuses more on the relationships between the characters than the world of Minecraft.

A cute comic about friendship, teamwork, video games and kicking dragon butt.

My son said this book rushed through the exciting bits and I think that's a fair assessment. The whole thing was over too quickly as the book is a bit too short.
A cute comic set in the Minecraft world for kids. A good example of team work.

Great Comic style book about kids who play Minecraft and want to kill the ender dragon! There is a lot more to this book than just killing the ender dragon, but it's a lot more fun to read yourself!

This graphic novel is partly set in the real world but mostly set during a game of Minecraft. Tyler has moved house but keeps in touch with his old school friends when they play Minecraft online together. They go on quests in game and occasionally chat about their everyday lives. It was great fun and full of adventures. I would recommend it whether or not you've played Minecraft before (I haven't). The art is excellent too!
