Creepers abound in Birchtown. So do mysteries! Like, who destroyed the village garden? What’s that strange music coming from the cobblestone well? And who—or what—keeps blowing up the blacksmith shop? Oliver and Audrey investigate in 5-Minute Mysteries for Minecrafters, an all-new series of stories for Minecrafters that can be read in five minutes!
In Deciphering the Code, the very first book in this mystery series, Oliver and Audrey learn there’s a reward for tracking creepers and cracking cases. From secrets in the swamp to bungles in the jungle, there are mysterious happenings in every block of the biome. But with Oliver’s eye for detail, Audrey’s courage, and their wolf-dog’s super-sniffing nose, no case is too tough for these twins to crack.
Follow twins Oliver and Audrey as they solve mini mysteries in Birchtown—and all around the Overworld in Deciphering the Code. In between mini mysteries are coded messages for you to decipher. You can solve each mystery, too—by searching for clues hidden in the stories and illustrations! Help decipher messages written in the “creeper code.” Hunt for clues and try to solve each mystery before Audrey and Oliver do!
