Book 1 of the international best-selling 8-Bit Warrior series that introduces the journal of Runt, a young Minecraft villager who dares to dream of becoming a Minecraft warrior!

The first volume of this international best-selling unofficial Minecraft adventure series begins with Runt, our 12-year-old hero, about to choose his future vocation at the Minecraftia school. His options are less than thrilling: farmer, crafter, miner. But what this noob really wants is to be a warrior like his hero, Steve. So when he learns that the five best students in school that year will get the chance to start warrior training, it’s ON. 

With fun text changes, full-color illustrations throughout, and shorter text blocks to reward readers balanced with longer text blocks to challenge readers, this book will get Minecraft fans off the screen and into reading!

About the Author

Cube Kid is the pen name of Erik Gunnar Taylor. A fan of video games—and particularly Minecraft—he started writing fan fiction at a very young age. His first novel, The Diary of a Minecraft Villager, was self-published as an ebook in February 2015 and quickly became tremendously successful in the Minecraft community. The novel was acquired by the French publisher Édi8, and was published for the first time in France in February 2016 under the title LE JOURNAL D'UN NOOB, with new illustrations by Saboten. The Diary of an 8-Bit Warrior series sparked worldwide interest and has evolved into several series including a graphic novel adaptation and a series for young readers that are published in 10 different languages. 
When he is not writing, Cube Kid loves travelling, fixing his car, voraciously reading fanfiction . . . and gaming!

Praise For…

“Runt’s narration is witty, and it hits the right balance of snarky and vulnerable…The density of the drawings and the short chapters will mean that readers will zip through this volume, groan at the cruelly open-ended cliffhanger, and eagerly await the next installation.” (The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books)
