I just LOVE books that make you pick your own adventure, I have read many of them in various forms. Some hold a whole story and let you pick a branch to go to, others have tabs and let you pick a tab from a selection of options given by characters/story, and then there are books like this one which give you a two page picture and let you pick a person/an object/etc.. I am a big fan of all of these, but I have to say this one is the most fun. You can make so many more stories.
This one is about PIRATES! TREASURE! Sorry, you have to put both those words in bold capslock, because they are amazing. For my first story I went with the goat who is wearing a flower garland and is visiting a forgotten city and is taking a discoball, a hula-hoop, and a bottle of milkshake with her. Along on the journey she takes on a crew of two dancing rats, a bodyguard, and a ghost. Of course she has to travel in style so she decides to go in a bathtub and we travelled past an island made of chocolate (and ate a lot of chocolate, yum)). She is definitely not looking forward to our rat friends eating all the food (they are quite hungry). When she gets to the destination of the forgotten city there are many people to greet her (she is a famous goat!), like an iguana, her cousin the llama, and some cute pirate babies. But what is this? An enemy appeared. Arrr, it is the fearsome dino pirates duo that has been haunting the seas, they are going to spring a shark with legs on me (oh no). BUT, no worries some friendly dolphins came to the rescue. Yay! As a reward for our journey we get all the fries we can eat (which goes well with the milkshake we took with us). YUM! At the end of the day the goat decides to enter for the world record for longest beard and guess what, she wins!
As you can see, I had so so much fun doing this one and I could imagine tons of more adventures with the goat, but also with others that we can select at the beginning. You can make the story scary or funny or silly or dead-serious. Whatever you want, you can do it with this book. I think I will go back and make more stories, this is a book that will keep someone busy for some time, and kids will just LOVE it. I am sure of it. So many options, fun and bright illustrations. You can be anything and go everywhere.
I would highly recommend this one and I will be off for my next adventure, this time I am going to the jungle. Look forward to it!
