My daughter absolutely loves Minecraft and asked for this book for Christmas. Both were pleasantly surprised by the work of the artists and by the creative writing. Anyone who has an aspiring artist as a child and a passionate Minecraft fan should seriously consider purchasing this book.
   Fun Book For Kids
Young readers will find this book very useful for any child interested in the lore of Minecraft. Rather, it is a parody of the game of thrones. It's just a lore book with illustrations by Roy Cooper and Frank Brigante.
   Minecraft for the troubled reader
What if your kid has a crush on Minecraft but doesn't like to read? Buy them and they will give you free minecraft books. You will probably want to talk to your child for hours about what they read in the minecraft books. Enjoy it while you can, but it's all down hill, Tunick said.
   Great book
Really enjoyed going beyond the game of baseball. It was very entertaining to read, had a lot of diagrams, and a lot of jokes put here and there that actually had me laughing a bit, Mr. Dhaliwal said.
This book talks about vindicators and they came out in the village and pillage in 2019, but the book was made in 2017 also in the village and pillage there are pillagers, so why add vindicators?
   Minecraft, but missing phantom deets
It was a present, Mr. Dhaliwal said. It's just that the phantom is missing. Only a few people actually bought actual books for Minecraft. It will never be up to date and missing a lot of stuff eventually. It's better to stay digital and check website frequently. It's a nice book, though, and I like the graphics and details for the other mobs.
   Very thorough and enjoyable.
If you like lore and depth in your games, this is the guide for you. The entire game is well documented and illustrated. There are quite a few nuggets about each that many probably weren't aware of. I'm a huge Minecraft nerd, but I've learned quite a few new things. My only complaint is that there have been quite a few mobs added to the game since this was released, which wasn't included for obvious reasons. The blame is squarely on me for not verifying the publishing date. I would love to see them publish an updated version of this with the new mobs since 2017. Along with Drowned Hoglins Pandas, Strayagers, and the Warden will be added soon. Also breeding mechanics for Villagers and spawners have changed since the game was released.
   Thorough info...
My son absolutely loves the book. Like the way the game is played, he said, he likes the way there are so many details about the mobs and the different characters.
   Outdated but still enjoyable
Many of the mobs that existed in the book are no longer present. The enjoyment comes from the artist's great monochromatic sketches of Minecraft beasties. There are some useful information about the mobs that are present, though told from an in-world perspective, as if an inhabitant of the MC world was writing a field guide. It's a decent ride, said Gillian Kent, director of music for ITV.
Interesting nuggets of info interspersed with some nice concept art. Some seem directly off the Wikipedia page, with some identifying them as "unknowns" or "unknowns only." Mr. Bazzi's work is done well and adds to the feel of the space.
