A different kind of comic book

Meanwhile: Pick Any Path.
by Jason Shiga

The book begins with a choice: do you want chocolate or vanilla ice cream? The decision you make determines the book's possible outcome: doom or happiness. By following the different paths connecting each panel, you can move forward or back, up or down, or onto other pages, creating your own adventure. I've read the book 6 times so far, and it's always ended in destruction, but who knows? The outcome may be different next time. Meanwhile is definitely a book to get lost in!

This is my final post of 2010. Look for new entries in January 2011.

Sounds like you do quite a bit of reviewing. I'm not ready to have my books in Canada since they really are geared towards United States social studies curriculum - but keep up the good work. I found your link on the linkedin discussion for the SCBWI group - E :)
