Look out for Pick a Story: A Dinosaur Unicorn Robot Adventure.
Sarah and Adam have created not one but three stories with multiple different endings in this playful book, Pick a Story: A Pirate Alien Jungle Adventure. The topics are ones which will draw children's imagination and keep them hooked and the changing endings will keep parents wanting to read it over and over again. The illustrations are colourful, bold and clear, adding to the fun of the wonderfully creative plot lines. Each child will feel like they have been chosen for an important mission. Vincent's dog, Trouble, has disappeared and he needs help. This book is filled with 'hilarious characters, super-silly scenarios' and the reader gets to choose what happens.
In class I would use this to encourage pupils to write their own ending by reading part way through and stopping. It could be used for language and vocabulary development and whould lead to a huge amount of discussion. If read in a group, you could link to British Values by voting for which page that you would turn to, discuss fairness and turn taking.
This is such a different style of story that it is a must have for every classroom and library. It is sure to be well loved.
