Paul's Web Space: Transformers: Book Guide
There have been many books telling the tales of the
Transformers. Here is a guide to the Story-books,
read-along tapes, colouring books that tell more of the broad mythos of the Transformers outside of
the cartoon and comics! I have other Transformer books but those which don't feature an actual
story are not being covered by this guide (at this stage at least). I also don't count the collected comics or
UK Annuals because these really belong to a guide to the Transformer comics.
I've only been able to write about the books I have. Any
information of other titles would
be appreciated! A key is located at the bottom of this page.
Search for Treasure Under the Sea
Bumblebee to the Rescue!
The Deadly Fuel Shortage
Forest Rescue Mission
A Message From Outer Space
The Autobot Smasher!
Bumblebee's Dangerous Mission
Battle at Oil Valley
The Lost Treasure of Cybertron
The Invasion of the Decepticon Camp

|I have no information about the following books.
These links are to cover images featured on Rockman's
Robots in Disguise page.
The entries follow this pattern.
Following the title of the book:
Author: Who wrote the story
Artist: Who drew the pictures
The Heroic Autobots: the Autobots who appear in the story, whether in the text or just in the art.
The Evil Decepticons: as above but with the Decepticons
Then follows a brief summary of the plot
Say it again: Includes the dialogue that stands out for good or bad reasons.
Where in the World: Any references to towns or countries that locate the story somewhere in our world.
Puzzling: Gives a description of the puzzles that made the Colour and Activity books what they were.
Not evil enough: The evil plans of the Decepticons that have been toned down to make the books more kid-friendly.
Continuity: Focuses on elements in the books that seem to suggest whether they are part of one of the more common canon (comics/cartoon) or aren't. Also mentions any continuity between different books though this is rare.
Comments: Any other comments/opinions relating to the book and the story.
