App Mash-Up Volume 1: Minecraft and Angry Birds by PT Evans is the story of two kids who get sucked into the world of Minecraft and find themselves alongside their favorite characters, the Angry Birds. The story begins with Jackson and Suzie playing Minecraft while they are at the car wash with their mom. Things take a different turn when they try to charge the phone using a new charger. A freak accident occurs and Jackson and Suzie find themselves inside their favorite game of Minecraft. The zombies there are much more ferocious than the ones in their games back home. Will they be able to get back home?

The story is a fun and adventurous read and will definitely put a smile on the faces of young readers.
