a first class idea that entertains all ages

My children and I love this book - its such a simple concept but I haven't seen any other book trying to do the same thing. There's no story as such - instead the reader picks from double page spreads packed with choices who they'd like to be, where they'd like to live and what they'd dress in, eat and do. There are endless possibilities. You can do the book quickly or really take your time as there are so many options to spot - and there's plenty of room for amusement when the two-year old terror chooses a sister that's a witch, Father Christmas for mummy and dresses daddy in a fairy costume to climb into bed with a wolf. Though of course the child can follow a more everyday route through the book. This is a book to grow with children inspiring them to make up their own stories in many different ways and settings. Fantastic!
