I think the Minecraft label made this a disappointment as it wasn’t really anything like it, so says my Grandson who read this with me (Alfie age 9). He got bored about halfway but I did carry on until the end. I think maybe it would appeal to a younger reader as it was just one story line and what happened to them on their adventure. I loved the imagination and a child would be able to see the picture in their mind.
The descriptions were really good and it would keep a younger child reading especially if it made no reference to Minecraft.
