Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sylvia Firth
The new series called "You Choose" is an innovative way of bringing history to children. Those familiar with the always popular "Choose Your own Adventure" series will recognize how these books work. There are three main story lines leading to thirty-eight different choices and fourteen endings. This title is concerned with the Age of Pirates during the late sixteen hundreds to the seventeen twenties. The reader chooses to be part of the Royal English Navy, a sailor on a merchant ship, or a pirate. Historical facts and conditions are accurately described and give children a true impression of life as a sailor. Several additions at the end of the book provide a time line, glossary, bibliography, and an index. Directions are also provided for the use of the Internet site "Fact-Hound" to gather additional information. This series is sure to be a hit, especially with boys who are reluctant readers. If the six other available titles are as well done as this one, they are a welcome addition to collections for middle readers. However, the steep price may be a deterring factor.
