User Summary: Your aunt takes you and your dog to the 1904 St. Louis World's Fair. It doesn't take long for you to get lost and find yourself being pursued by dog-eating Igorot tribesmen.
Demian's Thoughts: This is a rather odd little book; it's full of lots of random facts about the 1904 St. Louis World's Fair, though it doesn't generally go into enough depth to be particularly educational. The line art throughout is for the most part fairly weak, and the writing is a bit annoying at times. Overall the book is like a slightly below-average Choose Your Own Adventure for Younger Readers. I can't imagine that this would be much more exciting in its computer format....
