Draw Your Own Adventure!
Did you ever get in trouble for writing or drawing in your books as a child? For me, I found it hard when my teacher’s would tell me to keep notes or underline inside my copy of a book for class! But, there’s a new book out that let’s you draw your own adventure! It’s part of the Doodle Adventures: The Search for the Slimy Space Slugs!
Draw your way through the story!
Doodle Adventures: The Search for the Slimy Space Slugs! is a lighthearted fantasy where the reader first draws him- or herself into the story, and then continues by following prompts and adding more illustrations and doodles. Set in space, the book invites the reader to join Carl, a duck and member of a super-secret international group of explorers, on a journey in search of a very important grail-like object. The book is sturdy paper over board with beautiful cream paper—perfect for defacing! And by the end, the reader will have co-written a tale to return to again and again, and show off to family and friends.
If you have a kid who is starting to draw or even doodle, then this would make a great book for them! Plus they are reading a cute story, as they help develop the characters, setting, and more, about this awesome adventure into space.
The pages are heavy duty and should stand up nicely to pencils, crayons or even colored pencils, depending on how detailed your little artist wants to get.
Don’t worry, the drawings aren’t meant to be true to life, but more “doodle like” and lets the child use their imagination. A few suggestions are provided, but it’s okay if they do something differently! It’s their story after all, and one they can show off since it’s a hardbound book to keep for the future.
My kid wanted to read the book first, then went back and would fill in the drawing pages, sometimes going back and adding a little more after he thought about it. And he was absolutely tickled to think about Carl, the duck, being our guide through the adventure!
Now, if your child is young, you may have to help them remember that we can’t draw or write in all of our books, that this is a special exception.
