My Little Adventurer Book Review and Competition

There’s nothing more enjoyable in the evening than sitting down with the children before bed and snuggling up together with a new story. We love reading in our house and without fail, we read two stories a night to the children. However, as much as I look forward to this special time together, sometimes the children pick the same books night after night. They seem to love the repetition of the story and anticipating what happens but from a parent’s perspective, reading the same story night after night can have you speed reading just to get to the end.

This is where My Little Adventurer come in! My Little Adventurer have two personalised stories for your children to choose from.However, far from being a simple book which includes their name,  My Little Adventurer have gone a step further and have created a wonderful book to engage your child and give them the power to choose how the story pans out.

At the bottom of selected pages throughout the book, your child will be able to choose which way they story should go. Should they take path a? (turn to page X) or should they take path b? (turn to page Y). This element of choice really excited my daughter – who at five absolutely loves getting lost in stories. She was so excited about the possibilities the story held that we had to read the book three times that night just so she could experiment and change the storyline.

Because of the variety within the plot, reading the same story doesn’t have to mean you read the same plot night after night. Although you will only end up with one of two outcomes, you can change the route to the end of the story and explore all the possibilities.

As well as having variety within the story itself, what we love as a family about this book is the ability it has to spark new ideas and creative thinking. By opening up the idea of a changing story, we are able to discuss other imaginative outcomes that we’d like to happen. Discussion is not only fun, but it’s also beneficial to helping your children learn and think about what they are reading and the world around them.

Two to choose from

When deciding on which quest-style adventure book we wanted, we firstly considered the stories we already had at home. We decided that Grandpa’s Old Watch, a story about time travel and adventure, was least like any of the stories we already own and eagerly anticipated its arrival. We haven’t been disappointed by it either. As well as being a magical story full of adventure and mystery, its beautiful illustrations add to its brilliance.

The books are made with a hardbound, matte finished cover. Inside, the pages are printed on glossy paper with a weight of 200 grams. There are 36 pages including front and back cover and the overall size is 29.7 x 21.0 cm. Not only do these books make for wonderful reading but they would make brilliant gifts too.

Isabella said that the best part of the book is “how you can change the story every time and you can make it do more exciting things if you want to”. Here’s what else she had to say!!

We have really enjoyed getting creative with My Little Adventurer and think it’s only fair to offer you the chance to see how brilliant these book are for yourself so we’re offering you the chance to win one for yourself – you will be sent a code so you can choose the perfect book for you.

For your chance to win one, fill in the Rafflecopter entry and be sure to leave a comment answering this question.

If you woke up on a desert island, how would you like to end your adventure?

    id get up and take a little walk around and find that im actually in paradise and that all the waiters are topless hunks!
    id spend 2 whole weeks there enjoying the peace and freedom and then by some miracle id wake up back at home with my 2 munchkins jumping on me saying yes mummys home!!!

  5. Margaret Gallagher says:

    Peace and quiet – a whole day to myself to sit relax and soak up the sun

  11. Rachel Craig says:

    Oh, Bliss! :- Peace and Quiet. Restful and Relaxing. Once Recuperated, I’d like the company of my fiancé. We would be thrilled to find a Wonderful Hotel, which is catered to meet our every need for Free.

    We would go to the Spa for a wonderfully relaxing massage. Thereafter going to our adjoining room to dress for a delicious dinner ( choosing our outfits from a well stocked walk-in wardrobe).

    There would be delightful entertainment following dinner. Possibly some songs from Jane McDonald, and Susan Boyle.

    Our family and friends would visit us from time to time (when invited).

    At some point I would grudgingly wake up from such a truly delightful Dream.

  12. The whole island would be an active volcano and it would explode causing everyone (me included) to flee on rafts made of coconut wood, obsessed with volcanoes at the mo cos of all the recent mesmerizing lava footage

  21. Jamie Millard says:

    most people try to build a boat to escape. But escaping to sea is dangerous and chances of success are slim. You might as well reach for the stars and try to build a rocket. There’s a volcano on the island that is ready to erupt that would launch your rocket. A new adventure awaits.

  30. Gill Mitchell says:

    I would see a helicopter flying overhead and light a fire so that they could see me and come and rescue me!

  31. rosemary wright says:

    Exploring the island I came across a palm tree that looked slightly out of place. The trunk was larger in diameter than the other trees and there was a hole at waist height. I gingerly put my hand inside and found there was a lever which I pulled and the trunk opened like a door. A lot of sandy steps going down and curiosity got the better of me and I went down the steps. Strangely it wasn’t dark, there were pictures on the wall, my Mum & Dad, my sister, my Nan & Grandad and more relatives every twist in the staircase. There were so many steps, should I go back? I kept going and was getting more and more tired until I slipped and bumped down lots and lots of steps. I stopped falling It was dark and the floor was hard and soft underneath me. Suddenly I looked around, there were curtains closed with sunlight coming through, I could feel sand under me, I had a sort of dress on, I banged my arm on something big behind me……… bed. I knew where I was ………… my bedroom, I must have fallen out of bed and landed on the floor, was it all a dream? but that didn’t explain why I was lying on top of a big pile of sand on the carpet.

  37. Adrian Bold says:

    I would find that it was a remote private island owned by a billionaire. He would not be there, but his huge high tech holiday home would be open to explore and live in.

  38. Hannah Scudder says:

    Find a handsome stranger on the island!

  39. Danielle Spencer says:

    I would love to find myself on bunny island in Japan – lay down and play with all the bunnies, leaving them some treats before I leave.
