Minecat: A Feline Minecraft Adventure
I received an e-book copy of Minecat: A Feline Minecraft Adventure by P.T. Evans direct from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
Something a little different on my blog today, a children's book, so as it is a little different my review will be a little different too. The first half of the blog will be my review of the book and the second half will be the review from my 7 year old Nerdling.
Minecat was a quick easy read and was enjoyable enough. The story follows Spike the indoor cat who has his own "outdoor" adventure in the world of Minecraft. The language used is simple enough but with some longer words that caused Nerdling to ask about them, which is always a good way to teach new words. The illustrations were not to my taste, they felt very amateur against the back drop of the Minecreft screen shots. Not a bad children's book, but not one that I would enjoy reading to them more than once.
7 Year Old Nerdling Review
I really enjoyed the story and I think Spike is very funny. I liked the funny drawings, they made me laugh. I didn't think Jason was very nice as he ruined everything that Spike had done in Minecraft. I would like to read more stories about Spike.
Overall definitely a children's book that makes the child happy, but not necessarily the parent who might have to read it to them. I would still get the next in the series for my Nerdling as she enjoyed it and she can read them herself.
We read this book on the 19th of June 2016.
I gave this book 3 stars on Goodreads.
Nerdling gave this book 4 stars out of 5.
