Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Danielle Williams
"Choose Your Own Ending" stories have always been popular. The opportunity to choose what direction a story takes gives readers a feeling of power and participation traditional books do not have. With a slight twist on the choose-your-own-ending fiction books, Doeden presents an interactive survival guide. What would you do if you were stranded in the Amazon forest? Doeden begins with a simple scenario, a plane crash in the forest, and offers two options at each turning point. Written from the point of view of a young adult with a fair amount of knowledge about the rainforest, each scenario draws upon general knowledge of geography and zoology of the region in order to determine if the reader makes the correct decision. Full color photos draw the reader further into the story and present stunning views of the Amazon Rain Forest and the animals that live there. The text is part of the "You Choose Books" series.
