Children's Adventure Book Giveaway!

by Judy (follow)
Do you have reluctant readers at home? Does your child struggle to read?

ADVENTURE QUEST BOOKS BY MATT WHELAN are a series of interactive books (sometimes referred to as gamebooks) aimed at children aged 6 to 10.

Each quest in the series is standalone and so the books can be read in any order. For this reason, the books are very popular with reluctant readers, as well as keen bookworms.

In each book the reader takes control of a different character on an exciting quest, set in a land of magic, dragons, sword-fighting, pirates and more.

The reader will have to make frequent choices, all of which have an impact on how the story progresses. They will have to decide which route to take, which characters to help, and which monsters to fight.

Each book has multiple routes to success and, once finished, can be played again and completed via a different route.

They are also great for eliciting discussion between parent and child. Parents can establish the reasons behind the child's decisions (Is the choice ethical? Which is the riskier choice? Have there been any clues earlier in the book which have influenced that choice? Etc.)

No dice, pens or paper required.

Just the book and your imagination.

When I was a teenager, I used to read the amazing Fighting Fantasy books by Steve Jackson and Ian Livingstone. I wanted to create something better suited for a younger audience yet retained the same level of danger, excitement and adventure.
