It’s certainly not angled for children, despite its guise as a children’s ABC book. God of War: B is for Boy features rhymes such as “Q is for Quiet boy! This has spiraled quick. Yes, you are a god but that’s no excuse to be a dick.” God of War: B is for Boy is written by Andrea Robinson, adapted from Kratos and Atreus’ journey in the 2018 Sony Santa Monica game. The illustrations are original artwork by Romina Tempest. It is available to preorder now for $16.99, with Amazon listing a release date of September 1, 2020.
God of War: B is for Boy is fully endorsed by Sony Santa Monica too, with the studio retweeting the announcement, a tweet that was also retweeted by director Cory Barlog.

While it might seem bizarre to adapt a mature video game into a children’s book, the 32-page hardcover ABC book featuring a video game isn’t the first of its kind. Bungie’s D is for Destiny gathers a bunch of art from various artists at the studio in a children’s ABC book that follows Destiny lore.
God of War: B is for Boy will be available on September 1, 2020 and can be preordered now.
