I had not heard of Amy Lee before receiving this book and I now know that she is a Youtube hit and has her own channel, on which she uploads Minecraft videos daily. The book is aimed at girls and looks to be suitable for age 5+. Most of the other Minecraft books I have seen are not targeted at girls, although of course girls do not only look at pink and cute merchandise etc, but this is definitely aimed at girls. It is brightly coloured and the layout is great - easy to follow and dip into to find something to do.
The book is jam packed full of things for children to do - lots of creative oppurtunities, quizzzes to complete and things to read. Throughout the book, there are lots of warnings about staying safe online, not to share pictures online unless you have parental approval.
This would be a great book to give before a long journey. It will keep children occupied for ages and needs little parental involvement, for those children who are confident to read independently.
Thank you to the publishers, Scholastic, for sending me the book to review in return for an honest review.
