I remember borrowing these books from the library near me as a kid so i wanted to get something from mine and my fiance childhood. These books were never really intended to be collected and held onto the paper is yellowing and rips easily but that was a typical paper for promotional books (mine advertised Pringle chips on the cover).
Overall the story line is nothing super but the neat things at the time was being able to choose your adventure; to choose your characters paths most will end in death so you have to keep your finger in the choice page, and its fun to dare others to read it with less deaths.
This book covers the Mario brothers adventure as they are on vacation on dinosaur island which has not been much of a vacation, A sudden disappearance of the dinosaurs has Mario and his brother Luigi out looking for the dinosaurs. As a reader you follow Mario's path and choose to swim over a lake with possible untold dangers or wander into the jungle to be possible kidnapped or eaten, or venture into the desert for no more reason than you haven't gone there yet. there are picture you have to pay attention to for clues on which path you should take with loosing the least amount of coins or having to backtrack your steps. A real treat for those who grew up with the choose your adventure books.
