Genre: Fiction, Picture Books, Fantasy
Reading Level: Ages 6 to 12
This is a picture encyclopedia style book about most of the Disney characters that appear in the Disney Infinity video game. It provides some background on the characters/movies that have play sets (Pirates of the Caribbean, Monsters University, Toy Story, Cars, The Incredibles, and The Lone Ranger). There are also some pages that talk about how the characters make new friends with characters from other franchises, which refers to playing in Toy Box mode.
Familiarity with the game may make the book more enjoyable to read and flip through, but it is not necessary as it does not have much specific reference to actually playing the game. To some extent this is good, as it makes for a book that can appeal to fans of the game as well as general Disney fans. However, as it is called a guide, it can also be somewhat misleading in that beyond a little bit of inspiration for things to do in Toy Box mode and a look at some of the gadgets it does not help in playing the game.
Overall Disney Infinity: The Essential Guide can be a fun book to encourage fans of the game to take a break from screen time. Also, the images can provide some inspiration for ideas of things to create in Toy Box mode.
