Quest for the Lost Treasure - ebook review


This is a great chance for a child to try to find "Treasure" in a Choose Your Own Path adventure.

Quest for the Lost Treasure by Gerry Gaston is a great way to get kids involved in reading. My grand-kids are probably just like other kids - they just naturally want to try to figure things out and have a say in the way their world turns out.

I sat down with my 12 year old grandson to see what he thought of the book, even though it was listed for ages 3-8. He enjoyed the adventure and often made good choices, but sometimes he went a way he regretted.

Later, I also had my 5 year old granddaughter and 10 year old grandson try it out. They all enjoyed it and it kept them entertained as they made decisions wither to “Climb up ladder” or “Go through the passage”. They all felt that the best pages were the ones with several choices.

They enjoyed the interaction of an eBook and thought it was fun to click on the different tabs that would take them to find the hidden treasure (hopefully)! At the end if they didn’t like the way it turned out there is an option to start over and try again.

Graphics are great and colors are beautiful and the main character is cute (to a 5 year old granddaughter). Although it is a rather short story it kept my kids involved. The story was interesting and had just enough intrigue to keep their attention.

I recommend the "Quest for the Lost Treasure" as a great introduction to interactive fiction for kids.

I read "Quest for the Lost Treasure" on a Kindle Fire HD, where it ran smoothly with no problems.

This book is also available as a print book.

Special Note: I received a kindle edition of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Enjoy the book! Watch for pirates with this spyglass.
