Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Innovative use of new technology has given rise to a truly original video adventure in which viewer choice determines both the characters' course of action and the very outcome of their journey. Based on the Choose Your Own Adventure book series, the new CGI animated Choose Your Own Adventure: The Abominable Snowman begins with the three North siblings, Benjamin (Frankie Muniz), Crista (Lacey Chabert), and Marco (Daryl Sabara), who are following their Uncle Rudy (William H. Macy) to the Himalayas in Nepal on a quest to find the elusive Yeti (Abominable Snowman). Before the kids even arrive in Nepal, viewers are called upon to decide with their remote control whether the group should parachute out of a malfunctioning plane or ride out a tough emergency landing. Once in Nepal, the group's path necessitates making a multitude of choices between opposing actions. Should they choose the conservative or adventuresome path? Follow a trusted guide or an apparently well-meaning stranger? Choose personal comfort or tenacious perseverance to the quest? Unlike most video games and interactive DVD features, there are no "wrong" decisions; each of the choices leads to a full length, yet distinct adventure with viewer's choices determining the very outcome of the adventure. In fact, viewers can potentially watch the movie eleven times and experience a different scenario with a varying outcome each viewing.

An excellent 28-minute bonus feature details life in Nepal and features real photography of Nepal's citizens going about their daily lives intermixed with interviews and footage of students from Seattle's Hamilton International Middle School and students in their sister school Kaveresthali in Katmandu, Nepal. The entire feature is accompanied by informative narration by Kate Fleming that touches upon Nepal's topography, customs, food, transportation, forms of employment, and primary religions. Other bonus features include a music video of the theme song and a behind the scenes featurette featuring actor and producer commentaries about the making of the show, individual characters, and the immense research that contributed to the authenticity of the program. (Ages 5 and older) --Tami Horiuchi

5.0 out of 5 stars From Adventure of You series to DVD what a journey. June 23, 2006
Format:DVD
I got 2 copies of the movie back in February and my kids just loved it. It's interactive like a video game and encourages you kids to enjoy the Choose Your Own Adventure Series. There were 184 CYOA book released e mail me for a list. Edward Packard started it all with *Sugarcane Island (The Adventure of You Series) published in 1976 by Vermont Crossroads Press. Sundance Publishing also offers a complete educational series that goes along with the DVDs, Computer Program that teaches you to write, books, and Website. As a homeschooler of 1 child and 3 that go to public schools this is a great teaching program. I hope you have as much enjoyment from this as I have.

Have a blessed day,

I absolutely loved these books when I was a child, and I just watched the DVD with my nephews who were completely absorbed by the interactive adventure. It's a lot of fun to be able to share a memory from my own childhood with my nephews and watch them become as engaged with the choices and outcomes as I used to be. What a great (and long overdue) idea! By design, these DVDs keep children involved for multiple viewings while the additional features provided are also educational. The fact that the makers were able to get William H. Macy and Frankie Muniz to voice the roles is just icing on the cake. On the whole, a fantastic product. Can't wait for the next one to come out!

5.0 out of 5 stars A great product for kids July 26, 2006
By Jessie
Format:DVD
I didn't read these books when I was younger, but a good friend recommended the DVD. My nieces loved it! They were so excited that they could actually make the decisions for the characters! They spent the entire time absorbed, laughing over the outcomes and wondering what the alternative options would produce. This DVD naturally lends itself to multiple viewings, and the storylines are clever and fun. Great product!

This DVD is incredible! Its fun, exciting, and best of all it puts you, as the viewer, in control. I had very high expectations because I grew up reading the Choose Your Own Adventure books. I was not disappointed. The DVD operates the same way that the books used to, except now you use the DVD remote control to choose what happens next.

You can literally choose and control the story line. There are over ten stories, and the movie has some big stars in it, like William H. Macy (he was in Seabiscuit and Fargo) and Frankie Muniz, who plays Malcolm from Malcolm in the Middle.

I showed it to my two kids (aged 4 and 7) and they couldn't stop watching it. They kept going back and making different choices and watching the different outcomes. This has got to be the coolest thing I've seen in a while, and the best use of DVD technology I can think of.

My only criticism is that they theme song is so catchy that its annoying, you can't get it out of your head.

Great for kids and great for parents, especially parents that used to read the books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hope you'll love it as much as we do! June 23, 2006
Format:DVD
We made this interactive movie hoping that all parents would love their kids to see this. We strive to entertain, engage and educate kids. Many parents remember these books fondly and we've made them as DVDs to stimulate curiosity in a new generation of kids.

But don't just take our word for it:

Recipient of 2006 iPARENTING MEDIA AWARD!, KIDSFIRST ALL STAR AWARD, Approved by THE DOVE FOUNDATION for family viewing,
Recipient of Film Advisory Board Award of Excellence

Testimonials:

"I love this program. It's smart and really reinforces good decision making. And, it's definitely worthy of repeat viewing since the outcome changes every time you change your options."

- Ranny Levy - Founder and President, Coalition for Quality Children's Media

"Extraordinary! Clever! Imaginative! The Abominable Snowman multifaceted interactive adventure gives you the opportunity to choose your direction on a journey into an exotic world of mystical characters and fabled creatures that will thrill all the family."

- Janet Stokes, Executive Director, Film Advisory Board

"The boys absolutely loved it! They are at a grade 4 and 5 level and were able to make their way through the menu with no difficulty. It was interesting to watch how they decided to rotate the converter so they each had an opportunity to select a choice of their own. I sat back and watched as the boys figured things out for themselves in an uncharacteristically co-operative manner."
-Carol Roy, Teacher, Mississauga, Ontario.

"I really enjoyed the 'CHOOSE YOUR OWN ADVENTURE®' movie, it was great! The best part was the airplane ride because it made Mrs. Roy seasick. Will you be making more CHOOSE YOUR OWN ADVENTURE®'s?

Our family has watched this DVD several times over and each time there is always a surprise. We take turns choosing which path to explore and we usually watch it a few times over. It is a great way to relax with the family and it really keeps them engaged and entertained.

5.0 out of 5 stars My son and his friends love this July 26, 2006
Format:DVD
I grew up reading all the "Choose Your Own Adventure" books - at least the first 30 in the series. I loved these as a child and when I saw they were coming out with a DVD, I had to get it (for my son, not for me...well, for me too).

My son loves watching this over and over trying out different paths and even replaying his favorite "stories". As a parent, I like the educational aspect and overall positive tone of the material.

The voices are from top Hollywood stars and the animation is high quality (not like some of those mass produced Saturday morning cartoons).

On a side note, we also bought the newly re-printed book version of The Abominable Snowman and my son is now getting hooked on the series. Anything that motivates my son to read more gets 5 stars in my book.
