You Choose - Night of the Creepy Carnival by George Ivanoff
Published by Random House Australia
What Fun! George Ivanoff's You Choose- Night of the Creepy Carnival is a twist a minute adventure of a read.
From the shadowy cover illustration with 'the horror movie opening credits' style text, to the numerous 'THE END' pennants, my eyes sprinted eagerly through this intriguing novel.
After I had read it through making my own 'brave' choices, being the hero of my own adventure (and what kid wouldn't love that?) I found that I had to go back and read it again. And read it again I did, repeatedly. Taking new paths, meeting strange and creepy characters like the Wonder Llama, the Acrobatic Ninja Defenders of the Earth and the tiny gypsy fortune teller, Madame Mags, not to mention the horribly creepy alien clowns. Children, naturally curious, will also want to know what all the possibilities are. What if I had done this or that? How deliciously tantalizing?
The large print format makes this book easy to read and the full page detailed black and white illustrations enhance the reading experience. I also enjoyed the fast pace of this You Choose story and look forward to reading the other books in this series. There are five of these to choose from including Mayhem at Magic School, The Haunting of Spook House and Maze of Doom.
I highly recommend this book for children and children at heart, 8 years and above.
