A Kid's Review on January 21, 2011
Format: Paperback
This book is a choose your own adventure. My favorite part is when I[or you] have to go in the well. It is very interesting because it has a ninja and I like ninjas. It looks like a chapter book, but it's not. The characters are you ,Nina,Gin, Nikkina, and the ninja. WARNIG!!! Do not read this book straight through. It will make no sense. I highly recommend that you read this book. I love this book so much I read it 2 times a week . This book can have up to 29 different endings. The adventure that I had to take was to go back in time and find the ninja and learn how to do karate. And it didn't go to well. I never ever got to learn how to do karate. I want to give this book at least 7 stars. It is a series, but I chose this book. My favorite character is the ninja because he looks cool. And there are pictures. I like the secret of the ninja.

Look closely, this is more like a pdf translation than a kindle book. No navigation built into it to jump from location to location.

I haven't read Choose Your Own Adventure since I was a kid back I think before the Internet (dating myself). It was great to see these have been reprinted and released.

Pic #1 = the cover. Oh yeah! Sets the mood and expectation of what's to come

Pic #2 & Pic #3 = great pencil drawing illustrations throughout. Wouldn't be the same without the artwork

These books are definitely for pre-high school age I think. The level of reading is easier than much of the YA stuff high schoolers read today.

Not much of a spoiler. . .
But the first choice you'll get every time is to do research or time travel. My first response was, "Why is my character not looking at the other characters with a dumbfounded look on his face and saying loudly, 'What do you mean time travel? Are you crazy?!?"

Whichever storyline you choose on that first choice makes sense. True, there are some minor details left out to make it ambiguous and apply to whoever is reading the book. For example you are never told how old you are, exactly, and it doesn't matter. Nor what's up with your own parents that you can be in Japan all by yourself traveling around. Not important to know, even though it's blatantly missing. It's all good.

Kids will have fun with this interactive story. Lots of variety of reading. Pages are all over the place, so you cannot accidentally peek to know what happens next because you'll be taken from page 4 to 17 to 9, etc., as an example.

It's a little game in a book.
There is plenty of adventure, martial arts, magic, time travel and taking down bad guys (and end of a storyline. . .if you choose wrong).

You can make your reading time as long or short as you want.

I was waxing nostalgic, one recent afternoon, when these books popped into mind. Ah, the halcyon days... I remembered being particularly fond of this one when I was a young tyke, and so I made a spontaneous purchase in a desperate bid to reclaim my lost childhood. The wait... twas maddening. I crack open the pages. That new book smell. I get screwed by a corpse in an urn 6 pages in. Infinite rage. The End.

My son and I love reading these books while he is in bed before he goes to sleep. I read to him, and he gets to pick the next step of the journey. He gets so excited when finding new paths or opening new doors to additional storie lines. With a quick back story, you step write into the action and off on making the story yours. Sometimes our story ends within 5 minutes other times it could take 20 minutes or longer. All of these books are written in a way to quickly grab a child's (or adult's) attention and keep them there. With so many variations, it is like reading a new book every night. These are great gifts to give someone over a long weekend or over a vacation.

This is not quite as interesting as the Choose Your Own Adventure books that I grew up with. My son and I have tried to read it a few times together, but there are some challenging 'Ninja" type words, and not a very interesting story. After a few minutes, we both lose interest and put the book down. I would recommend saving your money and getting a different one in the series to try.

I read this book to a 6 and 8 year old in the car (which I do with other similar type books) and this one was difficult to follow (even reading it) and seemed to jump all over the place. There are better books out there and the kindle version had you jumping pages even if it wasn't a decision. This became very tedious and tiresome quickly.

When I was a little girl we used to read these wide eyed until we reach the ending! Unsatisfied, I'd start all over again and do another story, and another story, until I've exhausted all possibilities. Sometimes, my sister would accuse me that I peek at the endings. Lol. That was 30 years ago. Now I bought it for my 6 year old son hoping he will catch the fervor I had for these books, I never wanted to put these books down!
