Interactive fiction has been popular for decades, but only in the computer age has it really blossomed. I remember reading interactive novels back in the 1970s, when they were text-based. For example, if you selected the "Enter the cave" choice, you were told to turn to a certain page number and continue reading. Later, with computers came text games like "Zork," where you gave simple commands, and the software responded with the outcome. Only more recently have the games added color graphics to make them more enjoyable to play.

"Quest for the Lost Treasure" is a marvelous introduction to interactive fiction for kids. The colorful cartoon-like graphics are very well done, and the story is interesting, with just enough tension and suspense to keep a kid's attention for the relatively short time required to complete the story. There are no dead-ends to dampen a kid's enjoyment, and even if they don't make the best choice from multiple options, the storyline tends to loop back to the right track.

I've read several complex text-only interactive fiction novels, and I enjoyed them very much, with their numerous possible outcomes, but younger kids would not enjoy these, and some of them have adult themes anyway. "Quest for the Lost Treasure," however, is clearly aimed at kids, and it's perfect for introducing them in a fun way to graphical interactive stories.

I read "Quest for the Lost Treasure" on a Kindle Fire HD, where it ran smoothly with no problems.

Format: Kindle Edition
What a great way to get your kids involved in reading! This ebook has interactive features which allow a child (or adult) to click on a tab at the top, bottom or sides of each page to choose their route to finding a lost treasure. For example, you could choose "Look behind the door" or "Climb up the ladder" or "Go through the passage". It's quite clever and a great way to get a child involved and to get them reading, since they have to read what's on the page to decide what to do next. On some pages there is only one choice but on others, there are two or three. Clicking on the tab takes you to a new location with the situation described on that page. The path you decide on taking to the hidden treasure will determine how the story plays out. At the end, there is the option to start over and try again.

The graphics in this short story are really stunning with bright colors and a lush look to them. The characters are cute and the environments detailed. I would guess that the reading level is at least 2nd or 3rd grade but you can see some sample pictures of pages in the Customer Images section that would help you determine that. This ebook would be a great way to introduce your child to one of the new Kindle Fire HD 8.9", Dolby Audio, Dual-Band Wi-Fi, 16 GB and to discover how much fun it is to read on these devices.

This book is great for any child starting out to read. The graphics are colorful and detailed which makes it less boring than just a text book. The story itself is quite clever. The reader can actually imagine being part of the book with real choices and decisions to make for the story to progress.. There are a few dead-ends, that may get frustrating to a child if it causes them to end up going in circles. The story is not too long for a shorter attention span. Because there are choices to make, the book can be read more than once and not be the same. I think this book is well worth the money, because it will encourage young people to read in a unique and positive way. It isn't "dumbed down" and actually stimulates the imagination. I hope other stories will follow in this unique format. Well done!

I love the concept of this book, the illustrations are cute, and I really wish there were age appropriate choose your own adventure books for my 5 year old.... Unfortunately this just didn't live up to even low expectations. The story is just incoherent. Multiple pages lead you the same page, often one where you have already been. There is only one ending. It reminds me a lot of the old Kings Quest computer game where you walk of one edge of the world and end up on the other.

Format: Paperback
Gerry Gaston has devised a book that will keep the young ones (and older readers) occupied for hours. With Laura Livi creating vivid, cinema quality illustrations QUEST FOR THE LOST TREASURE is so entertaining and such a fine learning experience that it puts the video games to rest (hopefully!).

The story involves a young lad who spies a pirate ship in the bay and form page one on he is given options for exploring the possibility of discovering lost treasure. In an interactive manner the author presents choices - to row to the ship, once on board via window or rope ladder to enter the hatch, open doors or explore stairs or go ashore on an island or avoid pirates et cetera. If wrong choices are made - or at least, less helpful choices - then he readers can move on to the next choice without `hangin' from the yardarm'.

It is all about choices, clues, intuition and chances and it really works well. At the end of the journey the reader is asked if they wish to repeat, making different choices, and likely the answer will be an unqualified `YES!' This is a very successful idea, beautifully deigned and illustrated. Hopefully Gaston has further adventures for us. He spins a wild yarn. Grady Harp, December 12
