Did you ever want to know about the secret life of a Minecraft Creeper?
Meet Jasper... he's a Creeper from Minecraft. He gives us a sneak peek into the daily life of a Creeper and all of the crazy adventures Creepers go through in order to NOT blow things up!
My 7 and 9 year old daughters are both fascinated with the computer game Minecraft so I thought this book would be perfect for them. When my 9 year old daughter first saw the book she exclaimed that it was a 'boys book' but after informing her that there was no such thing as 'boys books' and 'girls books', she sat down and read the back cover. The book cover is very attractive with a pixelated design and even with my limited knowledge, I instantly associated it with the game Minecraft.
When I turned to look at my daughter, her head was buried in the book and she would let out an occasional giggle. It took her exactly one hour to read the book and when she finished it she said it was very funny. She liked the toilet humour in the book and found it a very easy book to read, especially as the font is large with a nice amount of spacing between sentences. There are words on every page that are larger and in a bolder font that helps to make the pages more interesting, along with a pixelated edging on each page. There were pixelated images throughout the book and although my daughter quite liked them, they did look a bit boring to me as they were black, white and grey and a bit of colour would have been great!
My 7 year old daughter has started the book and is taking a little longer to read it. The Creeper is called Jasper and he has a lisp so he writes the words as if he is hissing. 'Admit' becomes 'admith' which is a little confusing for her (it didn't bother my eldest).
Overall, if you want to get your kids off the tablet and reading, this is a great book to give them! My eldest is already looking forward to reading Book 2!
