Before I get to today’s review, I wanted to tell you to please check out the first stop on my book’s blog tour. Today I am over at Michelle Isenhoff’s blog – click HERE to go THERE! Mrs. Isenhoff was a big help to me when I wrote the book. She helped me with grammar and how to write conversations well. She is a great mentor to me and I am happy that she is reviewing my book! 😀
Tomorrow, be sure to visit Kid Lit Reviews for the next tour stop.

Choose Your Own Path: Quest for the Dragon’s Treasure
Author: Gerry Gaston
Illustrated by Laura Livi
Format: Children’s Picture Book
66 pages – ages 4-8 yrs
HERE YE, HERE YE! The king’s royal crown has been stolen by a terrible red dragon! Many have tried to get it back, but no one has succeeded! Calling all brave knights! You must choose your own path. Will it be the right one?
I have to admit I think the choose your own path type of story like this works better as an ebook than a paper book. Because it is an ebook the whole interactive part works a lot better (and I can’t flip back through the pages and kind of cheat to see where I am going 😉 ). I love the choose your own adventure idea for books. It makes me feel like I am the character in the story. I like the fantasy element in the book – dragons and stolen treasure. It is a good theme for kids. The creatures in the book are cool. The illustrations are great. They fill the page and have plenty to look at. Have a look –
The “choose your own” part of the book was easy to use. You could easily go back if you wanted to turn around. It worked really well.
This is the second Choose your own Path book I reviewed by Gerry Gaston. See the first HERE!
