Minecraft book! Journey To A Different Dimension by Stan Schatt and Demian Schatt

Am I the last person to hear of this? A little novel for kids aged eight to twelve about Minecraft? I'm not sure, but I do know that if its not in every classroom library by the end of the year, someones missed a trick.

Journey to a Different Dimension is written by Stan Schatt and Demian Schatt who are grandfather and grandson respectively. Its a clever idea and somewhat surprising it was possible legally(they don't have any affiliation with the game)but still, I'm glad it was. My eight year old begun it last night and is now approaching the last chapter. Its pretty short but that's not a bad thing as it makes it perfect for reluctant readers. I was going to say reluctant readers who love Minecraft but is there a child around who doesn't?
See the text, not to big, not too small. Characters are two male and one female, all early teens. And the best part - they get sucked into the game. Awesome! (or whatever they say these days..I think its "Beast!")


  1. The sequel, Return to a Different Dimension, should be available on Amazon around September lst.
