I have always been a fan of books such as twist-a-plot, pick-a-path and choose-your-own-adventure. Having some control over the direction that the book takes, as a reader, is very empowering. So when George Ivanoff revealed that he was planning, and working on, his "You Choose" series, I was very excited. I'm already familiar with some of George's work and I knew that he would add something special to the genre. And deliver he did.
I purchased "Mayhem at Magic School" primarily for myself, lol, but also to share with my children. I devoured the book in a matter of hours; try as I might I couldn't slow myself down. George has a wonderful imagaination and a great way with words. This is not another hackneyed attempt at copying J.K Rowling, although there is a rather large nod to the "Harry Potter" series. George has produced something fesh that will appeal to most readers of all ages. Don't kid yourself that these books are just for kids. And there is at least one secene that will guarantee belly laughs from the reader, whilst grabbing for a sick bucket.
My children are enjoying the book too and theis series will find it's way into a few stockings this Xmas.
