Reviewed by Rosie Malezer for Readers' Favorite

Minecraft Steve vs. The Burpinator is the fourth book in the Stinky Steve series, written by P.T. Evans and illustrated by Jake Tashjian. Fighting crime is all in a day’s work for Steve, who uses his lethal farts as a weapon against the undead, as well as taking out those unfortunate enough to be standing in the line of fire when one of Steve’s heavily baked stink bombs is unleashed. When Steve’s Burpinator alarm sounds, he quickly makes his way to the abandoned amusement park, which is home to many undeterred zombies and villains. Not only is Steve determined to defeat the Burpinator in a landslide victory, but he also plans to take the Burpinator out for good. After Steve loads up on some high-powered flatulence-inducing foods, in readiness for the great duel, his plans are thwarted and he is forced to rethink his whole strategy when he finds out the true identity of his burping nemesis.

I could not help but be amused not only at the title of the book, but also the content and illustrations, as this superhero-with-a-difference fights the forces of evil. P.T. Evans’ writing talent shines through, portraying a butt-shooting, flame-throwing powerhouse, who is not afraid to take on enemies of the people, whether those enemies are dead or undead. Not only was the story well-crafted and witty, but the illustrations left nothing to the imagination as the story unfolded. Minecraft Steve vs. The Burpinator is a hilarious must-read for all fans of the Minecraft games and books. The characters are strong, witty, and are as dedicated as the die-hard fans who follow their trails (from a distance, in Stinky Steve’s case). I thoroughly enjoyed Minecraft Steve vs. The Burpinator, and recommend it to Minecraft Novices and Experts alike.
