Meet AFK: Scholastic is taking gaming offline!

Scholastic is one of the most prominent publishers of video game-related books for children. With original fiction, guidebooks, and unique stories developed for the worlds of Assassin’s Creed, World of Warcraft, Five Nights at Freddy’s, Pokémon, and more, Scholastic keeps gamers engaged while they’re AFK— or “away from keyboard”—in the dynamic, virtual reality environments that they love.

These books are not only favorites among video gaming readers (Five Nights at Freddy’s: The Silver Eyes is a #1 New York Times bestseller!), but also have become a valuable tool for parents, librarians, and teachers, who find that these books provide two benefits to growing readers: they encourage time away from screens, while also supporting reading and literacy by keeping fans engaged in the worlds they love.

Below is a list of the books currently included in the Scholastic AFK line, with more properties to be added throughout 2018 and beyond. Visit for updates on new additions to Scholastic AFK.
