Publisher Insight Editions has teamed up with Sony and author Andrea Robinson to create a humorous literary take on Kratos' journey through the nine realms of Norse mythology. God of War: B Is For Boy takes a skewed look at Kratos and Atreus' saga and will be available later this year.

What is God of War: B Is For Boy?

God of War: B Is For Boy is a fun jaunt through an alphabet-themed journey in the nine realms.

Insight Editions describes God of War: B Is For Boy as a "new humorous take on God of War". In the book, Kratos uses a series of scenarios from the game to teach his son the alphabet. The dialogue is much more fun and light-hearted than what's featured in the 2018 video game, but it's still shot through with Kratos and Atreus' unique personalities. That's all wrapped up in an art style that's reminiscent of Jon Klassen's classic I Want My Hat Back. It is worth noting, however, that this book contains some pretty spicy language and is not appropriate for children.

God of War: B Is For Boy is written by New York-based author Andrea Robinson. The author's previous works include Buffy the Vampire Slayer: The Official Grimoire and The Vampire Diaries: Unlocking the Secrets of Mystic Falls. The artwork is drawn by UK native Romina Tempest - currently residing in New Jersey - whose portfolio and previous work you can check out over at her official website. Insight Editions' publishing catalog includes books about Metallica singer James Hetfield and legendary musical icon David Bowie, as well as art collections for properties like Harry Potter and Game of Thrones.

According to God of War: B Is For Boy's Amazon listing, it'll be available for purchase on September 1st this year. It's not clear whether that's a placeholder date or the official release date. What is clear is that you can pre-order the book right now if you're so inclined. Want to check out the original saga? God of War is available to buy right now on PlayStation 4.
