Kids’ Club Review by Kieran: Lost in the nether

Lost in the netherLost in the nether, Cube Kid ; illustrated by Vladimir

This book is about a kitten from minecraft. He disobeyed his mum and went in to the Nether.When Wolves were chasing him, he jumped through something purple. Soon he found out that it was a nether portal. he met a ghast named Clyde. They became friends and they helped each other out( like friends should do). When the” endermage” saw the kitten with Batwing( a wither skeleton) and the kitten’s name is Eeebs. There is also an enderman that got kicked out of the End. Eeeb’s friends came too. They have all got the Nether Mark, The Nether had chosen them to fight Herobrine and the bad enderman. The “endermage” enhanced them all. Eeebs has to go back to the over wold where he came from because he has to go back to warn the villagers in Villagetown. Because the prophecy is real and that means Herobrine is going to attack.

I like it because its a book for minecraft. I recommend this book to people who like minecraft.
