About this Item

First Edition. First printing with full numberline. 3 titles listed opposite title page (published simultaneously.) Faint crease to bottom corner of front cover, owner's first name in ink to first page; spine printing offset about 1/8" inch, corrected in later printings. Frankly, this is in much better condition than many later printings of Choose-Your-Own-Adventure books that come in! Hard to overstate the importance of this book; it launched a genre, predated web-based interactive texts, brought the concept of role-playing out of geekdom (D & D) and into the mainstream, and has become a cultural icon beloved by a new generation of children. Sorry to disappoint any techno-geeks, but there is something very satisfying about the book format of choose-your-own which cannot be replicated by similar computer games.
