Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Ginny Sautner
This reader-guided adventure story will undoubtedly engross kids of all backgrounds, as it places control of the plot into their very hands. Kids will not only love the fun and artistic images on the page, but will also enjoy the empowerment of choice. From the onset of the novel, the reader is spoken to directly in a second person fashion. As the main character, it is the reader who is spending the summer with good friend Jimmy, and the reader's choices lead to either a safe escape or death at the outreached hands of the zombies. With plenty of intriguing twists and turns, cheating and peaking ahead is made all but impossible. The adventure options and action-packed images make reading this novel more accessible to those kids who may have a natural aversion to reading. A great tool for teaching decision-making and cause and effect, this novel is visually and mentally entertaining. Reviewer: Ginny Sautner
School Library Journal

Gr 4-8 -There is a simple pleasure in reading a choose-your-own-adventure book. The option to reconsider every plot twist is perhaps one reason, and another may be the power of happenstance. These titles add to this engaging genre. Both feature fairly involved stories, with a page of text usually alternating with a full-color comic panel that illustrates the action. The artwork is in a good comic style, not mangalike and not trying to replicate a superhero style, either. In Time Travel Trap , a group of kids are hurtled through various time periods, and the imagined futures and known historical pasts are carefully imagined and chosen. In Zombie Island , a group of children are trying to escape from pirates and zombies after a shipwreck. Both of these titles have a comic sensibility, and even when readers choose a plot twist that leads to doom, the writing is still humorous and sarcastic. Young readers will devour every page and follow the chain of events leading to each scene of happy or horrible ending. Dona't miss out on these excellent titles-theya're great for getting children who "hate reading" to change their mind.-John Leighton, Brooklyn Public Library, NY
