Review by Caleb, age 11
Bacca and the Riddle of the Diamond Dragon was an interesting book because it was about my favorite game, Minecraft, and a famous YouTuber named JeromeASF. In the book, Bacca, Jerome’s Minecraft character, was taken by a diamond dragon to help get back something called the dragon orb. Bacca was put through difficult tasks and mind puzzles to try and find the dragon orb. On the way, while solving the puzzles, he met some new friends in the Creeper Temple where the orb was thought to be located. Once Bacca finished all the puzzles, the creepers told him that this set of tasks only proved he could make them a new temple, but the creepers accidentally told him where the dragon orb was actually located. He gathered some of the friends he made during the tasks and brought them with him to get back the orb. He used his friends to help him get the orb because each person had a special need in Bacca’s plan. Once Bacca was finished getting back the orb, he thanked his friends and gave the orb back to the dragons. When he gave it back, the dragons brought him home and gave him a prize of his choice for his help.
I liked this book because it not only was about my favorite game and YouTuber, but it had lots of mystery because I always wanted to know what Bacca was going to do for his next task. Some of the ways he finished the riddles was very interesting. Each moment, I was waiting for more adventure. My favorite character besides Bacca was Gargantua, a giant skeleton, because he was funny and made me laugh. I hope that JeromeASF writes a Part 2 or a sequel to this amazing story.
For ages 9 and up.
