In the tradition of iconic stories like Robinson Crusoe and Treasure Island, Minecraft: The Island will tell the story of a new hero stranded in the world of Minecraft, who must survive the harsh, unfamiliar environment and unravel the secrets of the island.
Tyler is your everyday kid whose life is changed when his family has to move from the town he's always known. Thankfully, Tyler has a strong group of friends forever linked in the world of Minecraft! Tyler, along with his friends Evan, Candace, Tobi, and Grace have been going on countless adventures together across the expanses of the Overworld and are in need of a new challenge. They decide to go on the Ultimate Quest--to travel to the End and face off against the ender dragon!
Gerald Creeper Jr. is a self-proclaimed pacifist (which, by the way, has nothing to do with a pacifier), but he finds himself in the war zone when he starts his first year at Mob Middle School. At his new school, every monster in the Overworld is jockeying for power, and the skeletons seem to have it out for him. Armed with a 30-day plan (he can thank his mom’s self-help obsession for that), Gerald makes it his mission to use his brains—instead of his blasts—to survive the school year. It all starts with:
Day 1: Come up with a nickname. (Gerald is not gonna cut it.)
Day 2: Keep a low profile. (Not easy when your new best friend is a super bouncy slime!)
Day 3: Avoid being target practice for skeletons, and somehow get in with super-popular Eddy Enderman. (Easier said than done.) The first book in this laugh-out-loud funny, heavily illustrated, diary format series for Minecrafters follows the most misunderstood hostile mob in the Overworld. It’s not easy being green . . . or explosive!
Gerald made it through the first few weeks of Mob Middle School in one piece (give or take a limb), even if his quest for popularity hasn’t led to fame and glory yet. When he hears about the school’s upcoming talent show, Gerald sets his sights on a new plan: unveiling his hidden talents as a rapper. He can picture it already—kids will finally know his name. They'll beg for his autograph. Maybe he’ll even impress the super-popular Eddy Enderman! But Gerald’s got some rivals for that top spot, not the least of which is a band of spider jockeys determined to keep a sixth-grader from winning the show. His sister is determined to blow him out of the water with her cannonball trick. Even his best friend steps up the competition with his slime-block trampoline.
Gerald is thrilled when a new creeper starts up at Mob Middle School. Finally, there'll be a mob to hang out with that isn't a bouncy slime or a flesh-eating zombie! With Connor by his side, Gerald starts his thirty-day plan to make creepers the coolest mob at school. At first, Connor does seem cool. He seems to have endless amounts of emeralds for the vending machine. He figures out a way to get Gerald on the field trip bus, even though Gerald's parents didn't exactly give permission. And he plays pranks on Bones and his bony buddies that Gerald would have never tried alone. But when Gerald's journal goes missing and his private thoughts and secret rap songs start spreading around school, Gerald wonders if Connor is behind it. He needs help solving the mystery surrounding this new mob. The only problem? Gerald's old friends are suddenly nowhere to be found. Is this creeper on his own?
The Creeper family is planning a month-long summer vacation! But where will they go? On a road trip across the Overworld? Backpacking in the Extreme Hills? Camping out in caves? Gerald and his sisters can't agree! When Dad suggests they do all three, Gerald hops on board. But he quickly realizes that the only thing worse than being stuck with his sisters at home is being stuck with them in a minecart for hours on end. Cammy is so excited, she keeps blowing up. Cate is sulking because she couldn't pack all her wigs. And Chloe is determined to stir up trouble wherever they go--and she's dragging Gerald right along with her. Abandoned mineshafts? Let's check 'em out! Miners? Let's freak 'em out! Cave spiders? Let's blow them into oblivion! To get through this vacation, Gerald is going to have to get creative--and come up with a serious survival plan.
When Gerald's mom says he should get more "involved" at school, he joins the newspaper staff. But reporting on current events is a snooze, until he stumbles onto a few mysteries. Why is Room 117 always locked? What is the disgusting smell coming out of Mr. Zane's briefcase? And . . . why is Gerald's best friend, Sam the Slime, suddenly acting so strangely? Someone has to figure out what's really going on at Mob Middle School. But never fear -- Gerald Creeper Jr., super sleuth, is here!
Gerald Creeper Jr. needs a new plan to survive the holidays. Why? Because he "accidentally" spent the emeralds his parents gave him to buy gifts. Oops! But no worries. He's sure he can make it all back by helping Sam the Slime put on a holiday show for little mobs in the neighborhood. Gerald can picture it already: he'll perform his new song "Rapping through the Snow." Everyone at Mob Middle School will love it! Instead, he's humiliated when Sam wraps him in twinkly lights and dubs him a talking Christmas tree. Gerald is ready to explode, until he meets a baby zombie with a special holiday wish. With a Santa skin, a wolf-drawn sleigh, and a potion of fire-resistance (to help him safely down the chimney), can he make her wish come true?

Gameknight999 loved Minecraft. He reveled in building structures, playing on servers, creating custom maps, and more. But above all else, he loved to grief—to intentionally ruin the gaming experience for other users. As the self-proclaimed “King of the Griefers,” Gameknight played the game for himself at the expense of everyone else, keeping the list of his friends in the game short. But when one of his father’s inventions teleports him into the game, Gameknight is forced to live out a real-life adventure inside the digital world of Minecraft. What will happen if he’s killed in the game? Will he respawn? Disconnect? Die in real life? Unsure, Gameknight must play the game with all of his skill and knowledge. He has to stay one step ahead of the sharp claws of zombies and pointed fangs of spiders. Eventually, he discovers the best-kept secret about Minecraft, something not even the game’s programmers realize: the creatures within the game are alive! His emergence into the game triggers a war that threatens to consume all of Minecraft and possibly the physical world as well. With his new NPC friend, Crafter, and his only user friend, Shawny, Gameknight will need to fight epic battles against the mobs on the server who want to destroy everything. One thing is for certain: Gameknight is either the key to salvation for all the electronic lives in Minecraft and possibly in the physical world as well, or he’s the fuse to destruction.
Malacoda is the King of the Nether, a terrible ghast that has a vile, evil plan for the destruction of Minecraft. His massive army includes blazes, magma cubes, zombie pigmen, and wither skeletons, and his plans will take one of Gameknight’s closest friends from him. Gameknight999 will have to sift through the chaos and put his Minecraft-playing skills to the test to solve the mysterious disappearance of all the crafters. But the battles Gameknight fought on the previous server and the enemy he faced have left him doubting his strength and his knowledge, and he’ll need to reach deep inside himself to summon all the courage he has if he’s to have any shot at victory.
Harriet, Jack, and Toby are treasure hunters, searching the Minecraft world for its most valuable hidden secrets. In an abandoned mineshaft, they discover what they hope is an enchanted book. But what they’ve found turns out to be much more valuable. William is one of Minecraft’s most renowned explorers. He’s a legend in the world of Minecraft, but, under suspicious circumstances, he’s gone missing. The book they’ve discovered is a journal—a lost journal that once belonged to William the Explorer. Ignoring the ominous DO NOT OPEN THIS BOOK! warning scribbled across the journal, the treasure hunters delve into the book’s pages. Filled with the knowledge William has gathered during his adventures, the journal offers invaluable information for the treasure hunters. The promise of hidden strongholds filled with treasure is too good to resist, and the trio begins an epic journey in search of rare goods and possibly even the long-lost explorer himself.

Harriet, Jack, and Toby are treasure hunters, searching the Minecraft world for its most valuable hidden secrets. In an abandoned mineshaft, they discovered the first of three lost journals that once belonged to William, a legendary explorer who has gone missing. The journals have taken them on a daring adventure to a secret temple deep within a desert biome, then into the perilous depths of the Nether. Now the treasure hunters are facing their greatest challenge yet. This time, they’re certain they’re close to finding William. They find themselves traveling deep into the ocean and atop the highest mountains, but they just can’t find him anywhere. Is it possible the journals are a hoax? Is the explorer missing for good? In one last desperate attempt, the group ventures to the End. But will they survive this last-ditch effort, or have they finally gone too far?
Gameknight999’s true enemy has finally surfaced: Herobrine, an artificially intelligent virus that wants to escape Minecraft and destroy mankind with their own creation—the Internet. If he is able to escape the game and get online, Herobrine will infect millions of computer systems and turn machines and weapons on their masters, threatening all of humanity. After facing Herobrine in battle and nearly dying, Gameknight realizes he’s going to need much more help to defeat this seemingly invincible enemy. His NPC friends tell him of the ancient Oracle residing in the oldest jungle temple in Minecraft who knows the secret to defeating this terrible threat. The path to the temple is fraught with danger, with zombies, spiders, and creepers lying in wait behind every tree and bush. Gameknight will enlist the help of his friends on his quest, but will they reach the Oracle in time to stop Herobrine? Gameknight999 will be tested to his limits, and perhaps beyond, in this spine-tingling new adventure.
Steve is back and ready for more adventures! But this time the excitement lands closer to home. While walking home from the village, Steve is surprised to hear a loud BOOM! When he returns home, he finds his wheat farm destroyed and a huge crater where the wheat once grew. And his diamond sword is missing! Steve believes it’s the act of a griefer with a lot of TNT. Devastated, Steve wants to rebuild and find his sword, but with his wheat destroyed, he must call on old friends to help him. All together again, Lucy, Max, and Henry tell harrowing stories of their treasure hunts and conquests, and Steve discusses his strategy for rebuilding. They all go to sleep, excited to begin their plans; but when they wake up, Henry is missing! Looking for Henry in the village, two of Steve’s neighbors, Kyra and Adam, have been targeted as well: Kyra’s barn was flooded with lava, and Adam’s friend Thomas is missing too! Who is the griefer terrorizing Steve and the villagers? And how will Steve find the resources to rebuild his prosperous farm? With suspicion circulating and no answers to be found, Steve finds himself wrongly suspected of these crimes—and so he must discover who the mischievous griefer is before something even worse happens.
In this third installment of the Minecraft Gamer’s Adventure series, Steve is invited to participate in an elite building competition on Mushroom Island. His friends—Max, Lucy, and Henry—are impressed and want to join their friend on a journey to the island. Yet not everyone is happy: Steve’s neighbor Kyra is upset because she wasn’t chosen as a contestant. Steve asks Kyra to come to the competition and help the gang build boats to get to Mushroom Island. She agrees, and the group sets out on an adventure to the contest. Getting there is half the fun, and the group treks through the jungle, where they find a rare temple filled with treasure! But getting the treasure isn’t easy, and they have to fight fierce battles to continue their journey. After their exhilarating and rewarding journey to the contest, they finally make their way onto the island and meet the judges, as well as the other four contestants, whose egos are as big as the houses they are building. Steve builds his dream house to impress the judges, but just as they begin judging, the island is overrun with Endermen. Mushroom islands are known for not having hostile mobs, so everyone knows it’s the work of a griefer. Is it one of the contestants? Nobody knows, but they all have to work together to battle this invasion of the Endermen.
Steve and his friends are back at the wheat farm trying to find a way to secure their crops from hostile mobs when their old friend Georgia comes to them for help.

Steve and the gang agree to help, but the journey to Georgia’s village isn’t easy, especially with a new batch of rainbow griefers on their trail. After Steve and the gang get to the village and fight the skeletons, they think the battle is over. They are surprised to find out that it has just begun! Rumors circulate through Georgia’s village about a skeleton farm nearby in the dungeon of an old castle. The griefer running the farm spawns skeletons and destroys them for the bones the skeletons drop when destroyed. Is the skeleton invasion a part of the griefer’s larger plan? Or are the skeletons escaping in order to save themselves?
When Steve’s friends Max, Lucy, and Henry get their hands on a map with the location of the legendary Mine Mountain, Steve questions if the map is a fake. Going to this fabled mountain, rumored to contain an endless supply of diamonds, is every treasure hunter’s dream. Many believe the mountain doesn’t exist, and although Steve is doubtful about the map’s authenticity, the gang convinces Steve and Kyra to embark on a journey to find this magical mountain. On their trip, Steve and his friends stumble upon a town filled with friendly folk. While there, they meet other treasure hunters who are also searching for Mine Mountain. As the group joins forces with their new treasure hunter friends, creepers attack them. The closer they get to the famed mine, the more creepers appear. The group doesn’t know if this is the work of a griefer or if the creepers are trying to hide something.
