really liked it

Clever and complex! I "read" this book by exploring it for a while, but I can't say that I "finished" or "solved" it yet. This is a delightful hybrid of choose-your-own-adventure and graphic-novel. You navigate through the book by following lines out of decision points. It starts with choosing between chocolate or vanilla ice cream and ends with avoiding the destruction of the world. Yowza!

I enjoyed the graphic element, the cleverly cut pages, and the sturdy glossiness of the pages (since there will be lots of flipping). On the down side, I found some of the pages very cluttered, the writing tiny and dense, and the lines difficult to follow; directionality or arrows would have helped with this. But overall, a fun read!
