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?
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.
Come along as Kratos teaches his son Atreus the ABC’s of the nine realms with God of War: B is For Boy. This new humorous take on @PlayStation’s God of War is written by @ASMRobinson and features original artwork by @RominaTempest.

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.
