Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Veronica Bartles
Number six in the "Mega Mash-Up" series of "draw your own adventure" books, this story capitalizes on the imaginations of young readers. A group of trolls, caught in a blizzard in the Arctic, stumbles across a bit of gold while hiding from the storm in a cave. Dreaming of all the things they can do with the gold they're sure to find, they begin building a mining town. But before long, a group of cowboys rolls into town, determined to claim the gold for themselves. The race is on, as trolls and cowboys rush to be the first to strike gold, creating chaos and mayhem as their worlds collide. Readers are encouraged to add their own illustrations and dialogue to the story, filling in the blanks that Catlow and Wesson have left open for interpretation. Aspiring artists and authors will love this book. However, since readers are encouraged to draw in the pages of the book, this title is more appropriate for personal, home libraries than for school or classroom libraries. Reviewer: Veronica Bartles

Meet the Author

Nikalas Catlow and Tim Wesson write and draw together and laugh a lot. They met when Nikalas, who was working as a designer, thought Tim would be a good illustrator for some books he was working on . . . and then found out that they lived across the road from each other. One idea led to another, which led to a partnership. They live in London.
