Dig World: Pixel Raiders 1 by Bajo & Hex
Published by Scholastic Australia
This is first book in a series of four. Bajo and Hex the authors are the presenters for the ABC TV show ‘Good Game.’ When Rip and Mei become trapped inside a brand new virtual reality game they know this is going to be fun! They have to build a shelter, find food and work out what to do with fart flowers! Fun soon turns to reality if they don’t play the game they become stuck and maybe forever.
This is a great story for 8-12 year old kids and particularly those that love playing online games such as Minecraft. The chapters are a good length and the illustrations help create the feel of the game that Rip and Mei are stuck in. The reader will feel they are right there in the thick of the game and may want to even take over the next move. The story also highlights the importance of working together, helping each other and how team work will get you closer to results.
The story is set in Dig World Level 1. With three more stories to go you can only guess how this story ends…….
