Welcome back to Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers….the place to get a taste of your next read (potentially at least). It’s Friday, it’s Friday…woo-hoo! Congratulations! You’ve made it through another week and for your reward, I grant thee…a weekend and THREE chances to win! Just check out the right hand sidebar for all the details. You’re welcome! ^_^ (Hehe…) Anywho…there’s plenty more reasons to celebrate the day that is today another of which will present itself right now….in the form of a blog tour!
That’s right! Today we play host to day one of a two day stop over for a blog featuring a children’s author that is taking the classics we know and love to a whole new level. How so? Read on my friend…read on.; for today’s feature is a review of the title, while tomorrow…let’s just say there’s a little surprise in store, so stay tuned. Without further adieu, today’s book of choice is….
Jack London’s Call of the Wild:
A Choose Your Own Path Book
From the publisher…
Stolen. Shipped. Enslaved.Can You Survive?
You find yourself in Alaska, a dangerous world of greedy men and savage dogs. Every moment, your life is at risk. Do you have what it takes to survive as Buck, literature’s most famous sled dog? Or will the freezing temperatures and rugged wilderness lead to your doom? Step into this adventure, and choose your path. But choose wisely, or else…
Okay, so as you probably ascertained from the title, this is a “choose-your-own-adventure” book…you know, like the ones from days gone by where you controlled your characters destiny? Yep….they’re BBBAAAACCCKKKK…with a vengeance and a few tricks up their proverbial sleeves. No sirree…this is certainly not your average book.
In summary, a familiar title with a new twist to shake things up a bit. You’ll learn the Law of Club and Fang. Make friends with John Thornton and enemies with Spitz as you journey through this harsh terrain. The path you take is in your own hands, but remember there is only one true way out, one way to survive. Do you have what it takes? We shall see….but at the very least you’ll pick up a skill or two along the way as well as the opportunity to immerse yourself in the classic from a whole new angle. Challenge your memory as you dive into the timeless tale or discover it for the first time. Either way, you can’t go wrong.
