Graphic Universe, a Lerner imprint, has begun putting out the “Twisted Journeys” series, which is part text, part graphic novel, and still puts the reader in control of the story. Just like the old books that I enjoyed so much, every couple of pages, a question is posed to the reader and where he or she chooses to go ultimately decides what other pages they read.
Not only are these books fun and interactive, they also get kids (ahem, young boys) reading, which is a big challenge sometimes. With “Twisted Journeys” they get the control they like, the graphic novel they love, and a pretty decent story, all mixed into one book. These are bound to be successful books with both boys and girls and even those adults that loved the Choose Your Own Adventure books as much as I did.
