Meanwhile by Jason Shiga
Rating: 5/5 Stars
Release Date: 2/3/2010
About the Book: It all starts with a simple question-what flavor of ice cream, chocolate or vanilla? From there Jimmy is sent on the adventure of the reader's choice. Follow the paths and see where they lead.
GreenBeanTeenQueen Says: I have been excited to read this one since I saw a starred review in Booklist. The premise intrigued me-a choose your own adventure comic? I had to check it out.
Meanwhile is the most inventive and creative book I have come across in a long time. I don't know how Jason Shiga put this book together-I'm amazed at his talent and creativity. The book doesn't read like your typical book. There are paths to follow and tabs to turn, so the reader is always moving around flipping pages and choosing new paths. Even though it's marketed as a children's book, this book is for all ages. This is one parents and children will have a blast reading together and letting each other choose which way to go.
Meanwhile is a twisty choose your own adventure comic fun. Even if you've never picked up comics before, give this book a try. It's too much fun and once you get the hang of how the book works, you won't want to stop reading. The cover says there are 3,856 story possibilities, so I'm sure Meanwhile will be keeping readers busy for a long time!
