The first official Minecraft novel now features a downloadable world and lesson plan!
Players enter the world through a beautiful library world hub, complete with books, spires, and a challenging ascent to the top. New mini-games will be released for each new fiction title. For Minecraft: The Island, find yourself transported to the eponymous island, re-created block by block. Several challenges await you in the caves below the island.
For lessons accompanying Minecraft: The Island, head here and grab a collection of learning activities for any classroom.

Love this! My students are using it to see the potential for building their own novels and make quests in Minecraft!

***BUGGED*** Please fix.
Stage 5 cannot be completed in it's current form. Once any button is pressed all buttons disappear as visible here https://i.imgur.com/qfQ5HsD.jpg and the reset button on side has no effect.
Everything up until this point is great, very immersive, job well done. I'm keen to show it off to the class in our lunchtime Minecraft Club but it would be unfair to throw them into an unsolvable situation.

I have the same trouble with how to use the code and buttons correctly. It does seem broken. Activating the redstone to create the portal takes you to -2107,52,103, so "/tp @p -2107 52 103" will take you there and "/spawnpoint" should make new players start there. There isn't much in the castle though. It would be nice to know if there is a way to complete the code entry properly.

I dug through the blocks and if you activate the redstone to "complete" the 5th mission, a portal opens by the cow island. I'm not sure how you'd fix that for students to keep going but am trying to work on it. The portal takes you to a castle where the library is located.

Sorry but where is this bit in the world download?
Looks great though and a fantastic opportunity to engage some readers, especially boys.

The library is in a castle at the end of challenge #5. But you have to break the code blocks to "beat" the challenge to get there. You don't start there. I am trying to find a way to set the castle as the "start" point.
