I received this book in exchange for my honest review.
I remember when Carmen Sandiego first came out and I played it on the computer from a disk. Yup, from a disk… lol
Now, it’s online and played all over the world and in books. This is one of them.
I love that this particular book allows you to choose your own caper. You become part of the crime, mystery, and resolution. You are in the middle of it all and are able to pick which way you want the adventure to go. With all the different endings, you are sure to love playing along and get as hooked on Carmen Sandiego as I am.
The book is thin, and won’t take long, but the fun will last long after you’ve turned the last page.
Instead of dice, like in Dungeons and Dragons, you turn pages. It’s fun and quick and perfect for kids. Learn about animals and geography, countries and how good you are at solving crimes/mysteries.
