My Opinion:
What a fun book, and creative on so many levels.
You literally go through the book doing tasks to help "finish the book". At first I wondered where it would all lead, but all good things must come to an end. And it did.
It took a while to get there, and some serious work on my part, but it was worth it. I learned a lot about exploration and collecting and did some ponderous thinking throughout the book. I really love books that challenge you or your mind.
I don't think everyone will have the patience to actually go through the book and do every task, some do seem tedious, but they are there for a reason.


3/5


Recommend? To creative minds, yes.

  1. Oh I will have to check out this book the next time I am at chapters. I love Keri's other books.

    This would be something fun my son would love I am sure.

    Happy HOlidays

  2. Sounds odd. I'd probably give up.
