Demian's Thoughts:

Of all the ways to honor Martin Luther King, Jr., a gamebook doesn't seem the best. While it's certainly a nice idea to educate young children about the civil rights movement in a book like this, it really doesn't work too well since half of this book is basically a biography and the other half is a series of dreamed events unlikely to make sense to a child who doesn't already know about segregation.
