You are on the Serengeti and get out to take a photo of a giraffe. The next thing you notice is the Land Rover containing the rest of your tour group racing off after a pride of lions leaving you in a rather precarious position. With the hyenas on your tail, your first decision is either to climb a tree or hide from view in a dry creek bed. Which will be your choice? How will it turn out? Will you ever make it back to the Lodge? What adventures/people/animals will you encounter before that? Will you meet the paleontologist?

This was a very enjoyable and informative read. Our 11 year old son made all the "right" choices the first time through so he was excited. We also learned a lot about the different animals and the Maasai etc.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED from our house to yours!

I first came to D.M. Potter's and Blair Polly's "Choose You Own Adventure" books by way of Potter's "In the Magician's House", which is one of the four books, (currently), in the series. That is a lushly written and deeply atmospheric book that puts the lie to any suspicion that you can't write an elegant magical fantasy book for kids. "Lost in Lion Country" is stylistically very different, but it is just as satisfying in different ways.

First off, I should say that while some "Choose Your Own Adventure" books can be gimmicky, with more attention paid to the novelty of multiple story options than the actual story, characters or writing, this book does not fall in to that trap. The option of making choices that lead you through the book adds some novelty, and helps to engage the reader in the overall reading experience, but it is the actual adventure that really sustains interest.

Here, our hero is never named. Our hero is "you". This is emphasized by the narrator's use of the second person singular throughout the book. "You" do this and then "you" do that. When used properly, as it is here, I think this adds a detached tone and yet an immediacy, to any narrative. "You" are there, right now. You must make decisions.

"You" have been left behind in the middle of the Serengeti by your tour bus, and you have to survive and find your way to safety. At the end of each chapter you are presented with a choice between two options. POSSIBLE MILD SPOILERS. As a general rule one choice is a bit more sensible than the other. You can take the apparently safest course at each decision point, (i.e. always turn left at the corner of the maze), or the the riskiest course, (turn right), or you can mix it up.

I hope that if I ever get 'Lost in Lion Country' I will have my kindle with me. Blair Polly and D.M. Potter's book is packed with useful information. Except about grubs. NOT THE GRUBS! I'd rather starve thank you.

My first adventure went along at an easy pace and I reached safety without any problems. Ha! I thought I'd got it all worked out. Only...much much worse things lay in store. The hyenas, the balloon ( not good with heights), the poachers and worst of all being actually chased by a lion. And I'm useless at climbing trees. Still, following the good advice contained in this book, I survived!

I had so much fun learning about the animals and about Tanzania. Plus I will always remember the advice of the young Maasai boy that when a predator approaches, stay in a group, stick together. Predators try to isolate one person. For dinner. EEEK!

This book is a really fun way for kids, who don't live in lion country, to find out what to expect and how to cope in wild outdoor situations. Especially urban kids. A vivid and entertaining series of adventures, all chosen by the reader, so truly interactive.

Having enjoyed 2 other interactive Potter stories, I was looking forward to heading off on yet another interactive adventure. It is not just the interactive choices that make these books so enjoyable, but the attention to detail and the vivid descriptions that really leave you feeling in far-flung destinations with a new World to discover at your feet. The addition of interesting relevant facts also adds to the educational element in these stories. This book in particular is sure to spark the imagination of youngsters, and to kindle ideas of adventurous career choices such as being a wildlife photographer or getting involved in archeological digs.
Yet another highly enjoyable adventure!

The text offers another exciting adventure in a situation you've probably fantasized about being in, but will probably never get the chance to experience in real life. The sharp prose keeps the pace of the work moving along quickly, making it an engaging read for those young and old.

The fun thing about the entire choose your own adventure genre is that you have multiple books inside one cover. These are all well done short stories, ensuring the pace of which ever path you choose is fast enough to maintain your interest, but not so fast you don't have time to absorb the rich detail and information provided along side the story. Though there are a few bad endings, I would guess it's 2 or 3 out of a possible 10 or so.

The design built into this book is nicely done to complement the story - each chapter represents a choice made after the first. So, you do not have to worry about being in the middle of the action and having to stop, think, choose, and then figure out where you were. (I've run across a few of those in the paper editions when I was younger - much less enjoyable!) This one, you choose, the action happens, and then you get to choose again from the results.

There is a limited amount of character building, since "you", the reader, are the main character. An intriguing way of bringing the story up close and personal. Along the way there is a large amount of information stuffed into each encounter, which gives the overall story the same depth and interesting texture you would expect from a heavily character driven book with well developed, complex characters.

For the world building - umm... where to start? Fantastic isn't strong enough, but I don't know anything stronger that doesn't get into hyperbole. Reading through this, I could almost smell the grass (which wasn't described - just the way it looked), feel the heat, taste the dust, hear the sounds, see the animals off in the distance, and know that what ever I decided could mean a grisly death if it wasn't the right one. Definitely an immersive experience for this vivid imaginer, and I'm sure it's not too much less for someone able to stay that one step removed.
