Scholastic, 2016. ISBN 9780545850315
(Age: 8+) Highly recommended. Game On! 2016 is a book by gamers for gamers. This means it should be enjoyed by all gamers and is highly recommended for game fans aged 8+. Readers can find out the facts behind the most popular games, the top hoaxes and the coolest secrets. Read about MarioKart and how many were sold or how Al in Minecraft glitches sometimes (and why). Gamers can also read about the top 10 game bosses and the hardest achievements and trophies to win.
The book is bright and colourful, relying on the well-known game images and small segments of texts to engage its readers. Game On! can be read a few pages (or a topic) at a time and would be a great book for children to keep in their tray at school or to read in the car. Readers will need to be independent to read the text but they can also look at the images for enjoyment.
