An Unofficial Minecrafter's Adventure bk 4. Bloomsbury, 2015. ISBN: 9781408869673
(Age: 7-9)For Minecraft fans. Winter Morgan's Unofficial Minecrafter's Adventures are written purely for young Minecraft gamers. She writes in an easy to read style with her action adventure peopled with very simplistic characters who are involved in an episodic treasure hunt. True fans enjoy her Minecraft story lines, filled with familiar creatures, fighting battles, traversing underground and above ground landscapes - swamps, caves and farmlands. This pixelated 3D block-building game is a worldwide phenomenon and many junior novels and player guides have been published for the enthusiasts.
This is the fourth book of the series and Henry, Lucy, and Max have been captured. Kyra and Steve are joined by Alex and Will on their quest to save their friends. Unfortunately, they are sidetracked by the lure of treasure, battle slime balls, use Parkour to travel across the mountains, discover treasure in underground caves and battle the Ender Dragon.
The story ends with a promise of another book to come, with Steve investigating their journey home through the dangerous jungle.
