Quest for the Lost Treasure
by Gerry Gaston, and Laura Livi
Ages 3-8 50 pages CreateSpace December 2012 Paperback    

With "Choose your own adventure" books making a comeback thanks to 30-something parents wanting to give their own children the experience they had as young readers, it feels like a good time for publishers to take advantage of the formula.

Written by Gerry Gaston and illustrated by Laura Livi, The Quest for the Lost Treasure is a prime example of the pleasures of a "choose your own adventure" presented with a new and improved design on the concept.

Simple and straightforward with illustrations fitting the action, Gaston and Livi make great use of a patented tab system for the reader to make their choices. Rather than hunt for page numbers, the reader simply uses the cut-in tabs. That simple touch allows the reader to choose from multiple choices on one page without having to hunt for page numbers.

As the adventurer, you are on a quest, naturally. A quest for lost treasure featuring all the pirate ships and hidden islands you would want.

The Quest for the Lost Treasure is a quick read these types of books usually are given the opportunity for new adventures. Its a fun romp for younger kids who might not be ready for the chapter-sized adventures.
