Top 10 Transformers Books:
First up on the list of the top 10 Transformers books 2017 is one from Hasbro – the Transformers Ultimate Storybook Collection.
This is a collection of 8 Transformers stories in one, and all of the stories place the Autobots in the positions of heroes. Of course, in every story, the Decepticon attempt to overthrow the famed Autobots in deceptive, horrible ways.
Transformers Legacy: The Art of Transformers Packaging by Jim Sorenson is one that my son would love – and it comes in second among the “best of” books this year.
There is something special about adding to your Transformers collection, but those collectibles become moreso special when you have extra information on their creation. This book showcases lesser-known facts about the Transformers concept artwork, original action figures, and design sketches.
Making it to third among the ten best Transformers books this year is Transformers Classics Volume 1 by Bob Budiansky.
The original Transformers began in the 80s. Since then, the collection has gotten bigger and better, collecting fanatics of all ages through the decades. This book is a collection of classic comics and stories, from the first-ever appearances of Transformers.
Next up on our list – Transformers Prime: Meet Team Prime by Kirsten Mayer.
It seems the one true mission of the Autobots is to stop the Decepticon from ruining the universe with their darkness. This book introduces Optimus Prime and his Transformers team to three youngsters, all trusted to keep the Autobots secret.
Also marking a spot among the best books about Transformers in 2017 – Transformers Prime: Optimus Prime and the Secret Mission by Ray Santos.
One of the lesser-known tales in the Transformers series. In a bid to steal MECH government technologies, the Decepticons derail a locomotive to snag Optimus Prime’s attention. While he is distracted, the evil Transformers make a grab for top-secret information.
At #6 on the list – Transformers Rescue Bots Reusable Sticker Book by Trey King.
Lovin’ the Transformers sticker book, but the best part is that all of them are reusable. Over and over again. From the Rescue Bots collection, this book features stickers of high-performance favorites, like Heatwave, Chase, Boulder, and Blades. Includes activities.
Ages: 6 – 17
One of my favorites among this lineup for kids this year – Transformers: The Ultimate Pop-Up Universe book by Matthew Reinhart.
I am diggin’ this pop-up book because the pages feature unique perspective of the Transformers universe. The Transformers pop-ups change from their vehicle form to their robot form with the slide of paper tabs. Includes iconic favorites, like Optimus Prime.
Ages: 4 – 8
Marking 8th place among the best Transformers books for 2017 – Transformers: Rescue Bots: Meet Optimus Primal by Jennifer Fox.
I looove these Passport to Reading books! They encourage kiddos to take an interest in reading for fun from a young age. In this level 1 book, Optimus Prime has tasked the Rescue Bots with protecting mankind. Great beginners read.
Ages: 3 – 6
Next up – Transformers Rescue Bots Reading Adventures by Hasbro.
Another Passport to Reading Level 1 favorite. This one is a collection of Rescue Bots adventures from the television series. There are 8 stories in a single book, featuring introductions to iconic Transformers, like Chase, Blades, Boulder, and Optimus Primal.
Ages: 3 – 6

And – the final pick of the top ten Transformers books in 2017 – Transformers: Rescue Bots Meet Chase the Police-Bot by Lisa Shea.
Dedicated to a specific Rescue Bot, this book is a must-have for kids who love the Transformers Rescue Bots television series. Optimus Prime, the head of the Transformers team (of course), sent Chase the Police-Bot to earth for mankind’s protection.
