Escape This Book! Titanic by Billy Doyle - GIFT

Escape This Book: Titanic by Billy Doyle, illustrated by Sarah Sax.  183 pages.  Random House, 2019.  $11.  Content: G  



You are the main character in this trip on the Titanic.  At the beginning of the book you have a choice on whether or not you want to be a stowaway, crew member or passenger.  Depending on your choice, you follow a storyline and have to complete different tasks to get to the end of the story to find out if you survive.  The stories include a crew member who has to help a wealthy family, a stowaway who is chased throughout the ship and eventually works to shovel coal and a passenger who is along with his musician father.  

This book is a combination of Choose Your Own Adventure and Wreck this Journal.  There are different paths that the reader can take that lead to success or failure and there are certain activities that you must rip pages or complete puzzles.  For an activity book, this is fun, but for a story there is too much going on.  

Reviewer, C. Peterson.
