Book Description

In this world, magic is real! It can be found everywhere, but only a few wizards have gained the power to use it or make enchanted items. You have been instructed to find and return a certain magical object, known as the Dragon Staff. It has the power to control dragons and your Master believes it was taken by the Red Wizard. He has likely hidden it in his mysteriously dark Tower. Begining your quest with a strong desire to prove yourself, you meet with your Master in his castle library. And so your Adventure begins …

This unique interactive format allows you to control the progress of the story, as it is being told! Will you dare to explore the secret passage, or play it safe and stay on the pathway?

And so you Epic Journey Begins ...

Once again author/gamer designer Gerry Gaston has collaborated with illustrator Laura Live to produce another very successful interactive book for youngsters - though that term `youngsters' can very easily be applied to adults who love to make chancy decisions. As in his other books you choose your storyline progression by selecting form alternative pathways - and that is why we can list Gaston as a gamer as well as an author.

Our task as an adventurer is to find and return the magical Dragon Staff that has power to control dragons (it apparently was taken from Master by the Red Wizard). With a click on the scroll we are off on an adventure. The Master gives us a potion to use to protect us and the choices begin - be teleported or use a hidden opening behind a bookcase, enter a forest or go towards a tower, take chances and encounter strange sites and obstacles or take the safe way. We ultimately reach the top of a mountain where the place reeks of magic and pursue the path that leads to the castle, face a dragon, enter the castle, and come into contact with the Red Wizard who guards his Dragon Staff - and with some correct choices and the use of the magic potion the Staff is ours and the Master rewards us back in his abode.

Now, whether that is what happens to YOU depends on the choices you make as the adventurer. It is fun to go back to the beginning of the book and purposefully take other choices to see how many ways there are to play this game.
The illustrations are absolutely top notch and the concept of the story/game is exceptionally well considered. This is a book that will continue to entertain long past the first experience. A very, very fine and challenging achievement once again form the mind and skills of Gerry Gaston. Very highly recommended. Grady Harp, October 14

5.0 out of 5 stars A fine introduction to interactive fiction for youngsters 13 Nov. 2013
By J. Chambers - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Interactive fiction has been popular for decades, but only in the computer age has it really blossomed. I remember reading interactive novels back in the 1970s, when they were text-based in paper books or magazines. For example, if you selected the "Enter the cave" choice, you were told to turn to a certain page number and continue reading. Later, with computers came text games like "Zork," where you gave simple commands, and the software responded with the outcome. Only more recently have the games added color graphics to make them more enjoyable to play.

"Quest for the Wizard's Tower" is a fine example of interactive fiction for kids. It's a simple story, where the player has been instructed to journey to the Red Wizard's castle and find a magical object known as the Dragon Staff. The colorful cartoon-like graphics are very well done, and the story has enough adventure and action to keep a youngster's attention for the time required to complete the story. Even if they don't make the best choices from multiple options, the storyline tends to return to the right track fairly quickly.

I've read several complex text-only interactive fiction novels, and I enjoyed them very much with their numerous possible outcomes, but younger kids would not enjoy these, and some of them have adult themes anyway. "Quest for the Wizard's Tower," however, is clearly aimed at kids, and it's perfect for introducing them in a fun way to graphical interactive stories.

I read "Quest for the Wizard's Tower" on a Kindle Fire HD, where it ran smoothly with no problems.

5.0 out of 5 stars My Nephew Loved This! 12 Jun. 2014
By Sandra Otten - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
While visiting our family last summer, our 5 yr old nephew was so interested in using my KINDLE. I was looking for something we could do together that would be fun and interesting for him. I found the "Choose Your Own Path" adventure books to be just what we needed! Reasonably priced, I downloaded them all and we had so much fun following the paths through the adventures. My nephew liked that he could make the choice of how the story went and we read this and the other like books over and over again!
Would definitely recommend this and the other like titles for hours of reading enjoyment!

3.0 out of 5 stars Decent book but questionable value at almost 3 dollars.... 7 July 2014
By Ben Lawrence - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
My daughter was excited to read this but the story was a bit on the short side both in terms of length and words per page. My criticism really has to do with the relative value of these books at 2.99 a piece. The production is decent enough there just should be more of it to justify the cost.

We read this book for bedtime and it was a big hit! My son had fun getting to choose what happened in the story. After finishing, he was ready for more stories like this.
