Adventure Time Encyclopedia
The Adventure Time Encyclopaedia (Encyclopedia): Inhabitants, Lore, Spells, and Ancient Crypt Warnings of the Land of Ooo Circa 19.56 B.G.E. - 501 A.G.E. Hardcover – July 22, 2013
Adventure Time Encyclopedia is a very nice product. Written from the perspective of Hudson Abadeer, a minor character on the show Adventure Time, this book is a fun look at the world of Adventure Time through his eyes.
The majority of the work centers around enumerating the major and minor characters of the Adventure Time show universe and giving general information about them as related through the episodes themselves. Further on in the book, there are a few additional chapters such as Ice King’s “zine” about “Fiona & Cake”, who will be familiar to most audiences of the show, and an Ooo Travel Guide by Princess Bubblegum.
As an adult fan of Adventure Time, I was very pleased with the book and found it suitable to give to a friend’s 10-year-old son, who really enjoyed the book as well (he is a fan of the show). Note that while I have marked this book as “No Sex/Violence” (which is true), overly-sensitive parents might wish to be aware that there is a reference to two of the (non-human) characters running around “naked”, and in one illustration, the male character Ice King is dressed up as a Sailor Moon knockoff (albeit very funnily within context).
There is also one page that features a “plea” to remove the character from the page in which he has been trapped. All in all, however, there is nothing particularly genuinely offensive in the book and as long as you stick with 10 and above, the content should be fine for most readers.Promised Review by Ada W.
