WELL HELLO! My 9 year old begged me for this book! Seriously, begged, PLEASE PLEASE.
And if you remember, a year ago I had to beg him TO READ. haha
He excitedly said, “it took me TWO DAYS to read!”
So we ordered the Pixel Raiders: Dig World book by Stephanie Bendixsen & Steven O’Donnell
Recommended for grades 3rd-6th.
“Rip and Mei have been invited to play a beta release of the top secret new game from INREAL GAMES. Once they start playing, they’re amazed by how true to life everything feels, looks, and smells. They collect materials to build a house, find food, and craft weapons.
But soon they’re faced with real danger. If they don’t find a way out in three days, they’ll be stuck FOREVER.”
The first thing I like about this book is that the main characters are a girl and a boy. Hey, girls can game too!
It has great graphics through the whole book to help picture the story and make it more interesting.
The book starts out with a lava floor. Because who hasn’t jumped from couch to chair in their living room to stay out of the lava?!
Rip and Mei go with their class to check out how video games are made. All the kids played games and the ones with the most points get the secret game!! But Rip and Mei got LAST PLACE!!!
So why did they get called to the principles office when they got back to school?!
You’ll have to pick up the book below, to find out how they ended up playing the new secret game.. and what happened when they found out they might be stuck there forever!!!
They fought off attacks from things like goblins, fire lizards, huge spiders and even more!! They had to win the game so they could get out.
When they try to get out of the portal…. what happened?? Read to find out!
