    "Choose Your Own Adventure" meets quantum physics and philosophy...for kids!

    This is a fantastic, fascinating graphic novel. My seven-year-old has not been able to put it down, and frankly neither have I. It is a graphic novel in the style of "Choose Your Own Adventure," where the reader has to follow a pathway marked on each illustrated panel. Just the activity of following the thread of the story with your finger as it zig-zags across the page and across pages is itself fun and engaging.

    The story is also surprisingly interesting and thought-provoking, even mind-bending. What starts as an innocuous choice -- vanilla or chocolate ice cream? -- leads the reader through tricky questions of probability, free choice, and responsibility. Trying to make the right choices, so that you can keep the story going, is what will bring young readers back to the book again and again. The illustrations are colorful and amusing and the language is easy for kids to understand.

    The pages are not made of paper but of some thin, strong plastic so that the book will stand up to the constant page-turning that the story requires.

    Not appropriate for children

    This book is creative and beautifully presented with such a creative approach to story writing and comics, however the over riding them of death and killing machine is not appropriate in any way for children. I unfortunately bought this book for my daughter (10 year old) and did not skim the story as I usually do and found out after my daughter starting crying at one of the versions of the story that killing is a sub topic. The particular story strain that she followed had everyone killed by one of the characters choosing to push a button on the killing machine killing everyone and everything. I have been back in the book store and pointed out to our well informed children's section B&N associate the inappropriateness and showed her specifically but she did not seem to really care. So be careful when buying this book.

    Kyle's Review

    Helps you choose your own adventure so it is good for learning about yourself and your friends. Definitely funny. Interestingly plotted. I really enjoyed choosing my own adventure. It is funny because there are many silly choices to choose from such as deciding between chocolate and vanilla decides the whole way the story goes.

    A Masterpiece for Children

    This is bit more than a choose-your-own-adventure story. It's a comic book filled with adventure, humor and a couple puzzles to solve. Brilliantly put together- the author (a mathematician) is a genius!
    For ages 6-11
