GamesMaster Presents: Stay Alive in Minecraft!
Author: Future Publishing
This book is different from the other Minecraft books that I have, in particular the Mojang Guides.
The Mojang Guides give you more help, this is more of a fun book. I liked the pictures, it is as though you are looking at images from the game. My favourite part of the book are the ‘Survivors’ Diaries’, especially ‘Survive An Alien Invasion’. They are quite fun to read.

Mum: The text is very small in comparison to most books. The illustrations do dominate the pages.

How to Train Your Dragon: How to Betray a Dragon's Hero: Book 11
Author: Cressida Cowell
I really like How to Train Your Dragon Books. They are different to the films. This books is scarier, more dangerous than the first ones. The characters have become tougher. Not everything goes right all the time for the heroes. The books are still great adventure stories though. My favourite character in this book is Toothless: he is so funny and a bit naughty, even though everything is against him. I liked it when he keeps singing the '... green bottles hanging on a wall' song. It is an excellent story, I would recommend it.

Diggers: The Second Book of the Nomes
Author: Terry Pratchett
This is the second book in The Bromeliad Series - a trilogy about nomes, incredibly small, fast people, who think humans are somewhat stupid and slow. Following on from their exodus from the Arnold Bros. Store, they have settled in an uninhabited quarry. Unfortunately, humans come back and start causing problems for the nomes. My son found the story to be hilarious, especially when you see humans through the eyes of the nomes and how slow and almost nonsensical they sound. Whilst Masklin was the main character in the first book, Truckers, in this book, it is Grimma, a female nome, who similarly has to learn how to be a leader (unheard of for a female nome). The Nomekind views and established beliefs on science, humans, the female nomes' abilities, religious beliefs, social norms are constantly challenged and subtly altered. An incredibly clever and imaginative book, part adventure story, part satire, always very funny.

Max Einstein: The Genius Experiment
Author: James Patterson
Max, the main character, is very intelligent. smart and kind-hearted. I thought that it wasn't right that she was homeless, everyone deserves a home. I thought it was strange that Max doesn't have parents or a home, but still goes to University. I was interested in all the science bits in the book. I thought the energy plan that she had at the start of the book, where she was going to make electricity from horse manure, was clever. There is a lot about helping the environment and new ways to create power in the book. It is a very different adventure story. I would definitely recommend it.
