Riddle me this, riddle me that.
How are YOU at riddles?  Puzzles?  Brainteasers?
Love them?  Like the challenge?
How about a cute...I mean, dastardly bad (but actually really good!) story?
Now how about we COMBINE the two?
The final results...a choose-your-own-adventure style read the likes of which you've probably never seen...unless you've been using LBB's time machine, and you've already been here, read this post, and are getting ready to read it again... 😉  Unless that is the case...and I suppose, even if it is...get ready for a BUZZ worthy title coming your way VERY SOON!

About the book...

Hey, you! Good thing you’re here! See, I need a reader who’s got some guts. And who’s brave and clever and cunning—plus also, ideally, super delicious. Uh, no, not delicious. Forget I said that. Brave and smart, I meant to say. Exactly. Are you brave and smart? And do you want to help me? I promise you this: if you read me, it’ll be the last thing you . . . uh, no, the best time you’ve ever had in your whole life!

So how about it? Do you dare read me? If so, here’s a hint . . . be sure to pack a Time Travel Emergency Kit. You might just need it!


As you can see, this is a BAD book.  Really bad.  Like needs his little booger face wiped sort of bad.  Like want so much to be a BIG bad book that he explores the contents of a mysterious spell book without reading the warnings fully or taking heed of the cautionary statements, travels through time making changes here, there, and everywhere, and awakens the dreaded Time Wo...I mean, hang on.  Stop the presses!  A deviously cute little bad book would never do a thing like that!  Nor would he endeavor to put some non-existing creature back to rest with an even MORE devious plan that you won't be privy to until it's too late!  I mean, that's absurd!
Right?  😮

All of that unnecessary worry aside because we KNOW the LBB would never do that to his readers...*ahem*...this is a FUN read!  Yes, you dodge pirates.  Yes, you're outrunning the police.  Yes, you go to the future and encounter a purer time where technology is now a part of you.  That's all a part of the allure!  HOWEVER, in order to get from point A to point B, it's not as straightforward as reading the book.  You have to participate in the book.  There are choices to be made, puzzles to solves, and riddles to be tackled, and some are easier than others.  No, really!  I was STUMPED at one point and kept getting circled back to the Time Vortex, and seriously thought I'd be stuck there forever with them (at least there was good company!), so pay attention!  Don't miss a trick, or you too might end up wasting unnecessary time and become besties with those pesky pirates!

A fun read that also makes you put those brain muscles to use, though my first time in the series, I can honestly see it being a favorite with readers of all ages, if not for the story alone, then the added challenges that await!
