This book is different from other books. You and YOU ALONE are in charge of what happens in this story. There are dangers, choices, adventures and consequences. YOU must use all of your numerous talents and much of your enormous intelligence. The wrong decision could end in disaster-even death! But don’t despair. At anytime, YOU can go back and make another choice, alter the path of your story and change its result.
I am old enough to remember the days when Choose Your Own Adventure books were extremely popular. I only admit this to explain how I have loved these books for many, many years and still believe them to be one of the greatest leaps storytelling had ever taken. Books were made to escape into and journey off into distant lands and places beyond imagining; to be able to be the character and choose where to go in the story was extremely exciting! Long before video games, these interactive stories were cherished and to see them being promoted by such a wonderful company makes me happy. Frito Lay has partnered with Choose Your Own Adventure and during the promotion families can purchase Frito Lay Variety Packs that include a code to download one of 3 Choose Your Own Adventure books online. Yes! They’ve completely modernized and went into the e-book market!
Frito Lays Variety Packs are great. You can take them with you on a picnic, long car rides, trips to the park, stick them in lunches and pair them with sandwiches. Because everyone in your family can choose their favorite, it makes it less of a hassle. So you can choose your chips and choose your book. In my opinion, no two companies could have blended so well together to bring families food for fun and food for thought.
My family and I were given the chance to not only review the chips we already love, but The Abominable Snowman Choose Your Own Adventure Book by R.A. Montgomery. It is about me and my best friend Carlos (okay it says You, but this is my adventure!) and we’ve traveled to Nepal in search of a fabled Yeti. Carlos is now lost in the mountains and they will soon be impassable! I must do the right thing… unfortunately my choices led me to amnesia. So Carlos is still lost in the mountains until next time.
The Frito Lay Variety Packs come with three other great stories to choose from; Pirate, Time Travel or Safari!
Look for this super bus in your store the next time you are out shopping for some yummy snacks! Don’t forget to look for the code to download your free book! And remember… choose wisely…
