"The room where you sleep is small and cramped. In one corner is stored the sacks of seeds needed for planting. There are not as many sacks as usual and your uncle and his wife are worried."

I can see a kid losing interest by the time they get to the fifth page where you just "go on to the next page."

Eventually after eleven pages, there is a choice, but after that, A
