“Ahh! You’re a blockhead!”

Jack, Kate, their parents, and pet cat, Bruce Lee the Scar-Faced Ninja Attack Kitty from Japan (Who Smells Like Poop), went to bed one night like normal. But when they woke up, everything was NOT normal. They had been pulled into the kids’ favorite video game: Minecraft!

Mom and Dad don’t know anything about this strange new world they must learn to survive in. Luckily, Kate and Jack do! Here, the kids teach the parents! Follow the family in their hilarious adventures as they live, learn, and survive in Minecraft. They have to explore, craft, mine, make food, defend against monsters, and protect Bruce the cat from himself, who keeps trying to gobble everything up!


The Accidental Minecraft Family books were written for kids ages 7+ who love to laugh and love Minecraft! These easy-to-read books are ideal for those who read at a 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade reading level (and beyond!). As such, they are clean and age-appropriate, with plenty of family values, sibling rivalry, and fart jokes to keep both kids and parents entertained. Plus, there are plenty of dad jokes to go around! These books are great at keeping kids laughing and motivated to read.

★★★ NOTE FROM THE AUTHORS: Parents! If your kid loves Minecraft, but struggles to love reading, we’ve been there! That’s why we wrote these books! Our hope is The Accidental Minecraft series engages kids with silly, relatable characters and fosters a love of reading. They’re filled with the fun Minecraft world, solid family values, hilarious Dad jokes, and of course, lots of stinky cat farts. ★★★

About The Author

We are a mom and dad to five kids, who wrote these Minecraft books as a way to engage kids who have a hard time finding books they enjoy reading. Our son hated reading. He was good at it and did not struggle, but it was a chore. He didn’t get any pleasure from the books, no feelings from the stories. Nothing we could find resonated with him. He would read for his twenty minutes a day then slam the book shut to do something- anything- else. Until he found Minecraft chapter books. He couldn’t read them fast enough. He would burn through a book in a couple hours and beg for the next. He’d snuggle up in his bed and read all day. We’d have to force him to turn off his light at night and actually get some sleep. It was all he’d talk about around the dinner table. He constantly retold the story, relayed the jokes he couldn’t stop laughing about. He would finish one series and start another. Then another. And another.And from those books, his love of reading was born. We sat down with our Minecraft loving kids, and with their help started writing books that would resonate with them. We hope our books can do the same for other kids who are struggling to find something they love to read.
