Bob18 und das Schwein namens Donnerstag

Bob18 and the Pig Called Thursday

The number one trend game entices kids away from the computer to books: learning to read with Minecraft!

Bob18 lands on a remote island, but he can’t remember how he got there. When he explores his surroundings, he has the feeling he's being watched. He finds an axe, cuts down some trees and builds himself a shelter. He’s hardly finished, when he receives a visit from a pig called Thursday who loves horror stories and wants to hunt zombies. So armed with a homemade wooden sword, the pair set out to protect a village from zombies, creepers and other unpleasant monsters – and a huge adventure begins!

An absolute must for Minecraft fans: The computer game is now available in book form for beginning readers and is packed with colourful comic-style illustrations that are sure to appeal to any book-shy child.
