    Taken from the back cover - ¿This book¿s alternative storyline

    Taken from the back cover -

    “This book’s alternative storyline pathways concept allows you to actually choose where you want the adventure to go! The choices you make on each page determine what happens in the story, and you control every step of the way!”

    Pirates have stolen the riches of your town. You need to find the treasure and stop the pirates before it is too late!

    This is a very good choose your own adventure book . It is written very well for younger kids and the “chose your own” part of the book works really well and it’s fun to do. The main character in the book is you (illustrated as a young boy) and that’s kind of cool. The illustrations are great, very colorful and detailed. Overall the story is very fun and I think younger kids will love it!

    **NOTE I got a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    more from this reviewer

    If I were to tell you that I read this cover to cover, eight tim

    If I were to tell you that I read this cover to cover, eight times, making choices each time,  and was thoroughly entertained and still had more options to read again, would that influence your choice? This book can work for parents reading to or with their children, and while we all love the fact that our child can recite the story of their favorite books as you are reading – there isn’t much amusement there for the parent.  This choose your own adventure is just perfectly designed with kids and their parents in mind; no one has a chance to get bored.  




    The illustrations are beautiful and detailed, without cluttering up the frame with ‘too much information and illustration.  I read the eBook format , where simple buttons are clearly displayed with the options for the next move: the book did read in landscape format, and while I didn’t have difficulty reading it on my Fire, I would be curious to see it on a larger display screen or in paper format. This book really does lend itself to a larger 11X8 format for the true beauty of the illustrations to shine through.  




    At just 50 pages total, with a multitude of permutations for the adventure, the entire story start to finish took about 20 minutes for me to read for myself: so a perfect bedtime share-story for parent and child, with suspense and hide and seek that is less scary than entertaining, and should keep interest for 40 or so minutes as you read aloud.   It truly was never the same book twice, and each time it was entertaining and cleverly constructed.  I truly did wish that this Choose Your Own Adventure books were common and popular when I was a young reader, as an adult it had me entertained for quite some time.




    I received an eBook copy from the author for purpose of honest review as part of the Indie Authors Rock promotion at I am, Indeed.  I was not compensated for this review, and all conclusions are my own responsibility.

    Rune

    Rune walked around the marketplace, buying some honey and bread, along with a long rope. She stopped at the fruits and bought some apples and honeydew. Rune walked back to her house. ((Honeydew is the best! My house is on page 16, the book with the guy riding the horse. It is like 'Cameron's Quest' or something.))

    To the person being quite rude in their post at my Pride

    Now, the real question is, what kind of **smarty** would post a two-page adverstisement at a human RP? Why the change of question? Well, you made a mistake in your complaint, so I told you your error. You're welcome. Now to the answer. I actually didn't mean for it to be two pages long; it just happened that way. However, some people have their eyes caught to a little backstory, and I had to also mention where to join and the info about hybrids. As anyone should know, it would be a pain for a bunch of hybrids showing up and you having to say stuff like 'Sorry you have to have only big cat blood,' or 'Sorry there is enough hybrids already;' that just wouldn't do. So I actually SAVE time by telling people first-hand! I posted in a human RP because that is one of the RPs that don't compete a smidge inside RP. Also, I knew that there would be several people who would RP here, so I made the obvious advertiser's move and posted an ad here. So, in reality, I was quite clever by posting an ad in this particular RP. I'm sorry if this turns out to be multiple pages long, but I just won't delete anything in the post, so please excuse the length. Although, I do respect others' boundaries, so I will also delete this with a blank post if and when you **politely** post at res three of my Pride's territory that you got the message. Thank you for your time.<p>
