Minecraft books for children to be published in UK this September

Four children's books about Minecraft, Mojang's incredibly successful sandbox title, will be released in the U.K. this September, publisher Egmont recently announced.

The four books are part of a publishing deal between Mojang and Egmont, which covers all territories outside of North America. The books will focus on increasingly in-depth components of Minecraft's gameplay, titled The Beginner's Handbook, The Combat Handbook, The Redstone Handbook, and The Construction Handbook. Egmont, which secured the Minecraft license last year, will also release a poster book, an All About Minecraft magazine and a Minecraft Annual with complex blueprints for in-game builds.

Each of the four handbooks will cost £5.99, the Minecraft Annual will cost £7.99 and the poster book will retail for £9.99.
