It’s been a while, it’s been a busy summer what with camp, visiting abuelas, Toronto Bluejay games etc.
Today I learned something. I learned I am no fan of questions. Want to know why? TOO BAD. Moving on.
Ethan: 5 weeks ago me and my brother went to a sleep-over camp. At the camp we did lots of fun and exciting things including swimming, sports, getting bitten by mosquitoes and horse flies and other games.
We stayed in a cabin with 3 other kids and 2 counselors: Honey Badger and Lil’ Red. The most fun thing I did was on the last day: we had a triathlon. The worst part of it was having to partners with a girl. I would have preferred to be partners with my best friend cabin mate Kyle. But it was fun anyway. We had to shoot an arrow at a target, run about 250m and then canoe in a circle before heading to the finish line. We came in first!
Mr Chip: I am writing about Choose Your Own Adventure (CYOA) books but before I get to that: Ethan, at least I came in second! Moving on. They don’t make CYOA books anymore. CYOA books are based on one topic but there are questions in it that ask you what you want to do. These questions affect the story. Here’s an example of a question from Chinese Dragons:
You are being held hostage by an evil gang of people. The question is
If you would like to charge at the bad guy turn to page 102.
If you would like to stay still and figure out his plan, turn to page 7.
I rate the CYOA book “Chinese Dragons” (it has no dragons!) 1000004 out of 2. So that’s good.
