Demian's Thoughts:

This could have been a much more interesting book, but sadly it wasn't. It has some weird random stuff, a couple opportunities for wish fulfillment and little substance. I suppose it's fairly appropriate for the age group it's aimed at, but I still can't help feeling that Edward Packard is capable of doing better than this.

KenJenningsJeopardy74's Thoughts:

I actually really enjoyed this book. The feel is highly unique to this entry, and the odd circumstances of your adventures give the book an almost magic feel. I half expected new decisions to appear out of nowhere each time I opened the book.

Waluigi Freak 99's Thoughts:

Many random, weird adventures occur here. I liked the gimmick that allows you to just turn to any page in the book and follow the adventure there, as well as the other silly fourth wall references that abound. While this helps the book in some places, it brings it down in others, making it a barely memorable one. It's a nice break from more serious works, but I wouldn't be caught dead reading it in public, or anything.
