Before I get to today’s review, I wanted to tell you to please check out the first stop on my book’s blog tour. Today I am over at Michelle Isenhoff’s blog – click HERE to go THERE! Mrs. Isenhoff was a big help to me when I wrote the book. She helped me with grammar and how to write conversations well. She is a great mentor to me and I am happy that she is reviewing my book! 😀

Choose Your Own Path: Quest for the Dragon’s Treasure

Author: Gerry Gaston

Illustrated by Laura Livi

Format: Children’s Picture Book

66 pages – ages 4-8 yrs

HERE YE, HERE YE! The king’s royal crown has been stolen by a terrible red dragon! Many have tried to get it back, but no one has succeeded! Calling all brave knights! You must choose your own path. Will it be the right one?

I have to admit I think the choose your own path type of story like this works better as an ebook than a paper book. Because it is an ebook the whole interactive part works a lot better (and I can’t flip back through the pages and kind of cheat to see where I am going 😉 ). I love the choose your own adventure idea for books. It makes me feel like I am the character in the story. I like the fantasy element in the book – dragons and stolen treasure. It is a good theme for kids. The creatures in the book are cool. The illustrations are great. They fill the page and have plenty to look at. Have a look –

The “choose your own”  part of the book was easy to use. You could easily go back if you wanted to turn around. It worked really well.

Five out of five bookworms for this adventure! fivebooks

    The follow your own path books would work best on eBook since it has an interactive aspect to it. This one sounds like fun. I could see you writing an interactive book with your engineering interests. Enjoyed seeing the interactive pages. Nice review.

    When the Mom Person’s kids were wee tykes, long before I knew them, there was a series of Choose Your Own Adventure books that they loved!! We still have them on our bookshelf. This was way before ebooks and they had to turn the pages, but they evidently had no problem with that. I can see that it would be pretty cool in an ebook tho. Like a video game. And I agree with Ms Tilton, maybe Tomato and Pea’s next adventure should be an interactive one!!
