‘Create Your Own Spy Mission’ by Andrew Judge and Chris Judge is a fantastic interactive doodle adventure where you, the reader chooses what to do next. I grew up loving choose your own adventure stories and I remember writing my own version at school so I was intrigued as to what excitement would lie between these covers. Ethan Doodle is a super spy and you are invited to join him on a Top Secret mission. Do you think you can keep a secret, if not you may be in for an explosive ending! Let the mission begin….
I set my daughter Freya off on this mission and she was immediately drawn into the adventure (no pun intended). It starts off with a top secret test where you have to write your name on a page rip it out and hide it somewhere safe to check how good your spy skills are in practice. You are then invited to doodle your way through the book and help Ethan Doodle on his mission to discover who has stolen the baker Mr. Dozen’s muffin recipe. All of your abilities will be put to the test as you have to assemble a spy kit, Freya chose a Private Spy Jet, spy goggles and false moustaches as essentials. Once you are ready to embark on the hunt for the missing recipe you are invited to select your suspect and follow them through the book.
This book is brilliantly entertaining and provides hours of fun for all would be spies. Hilariously funny it will have a really wide appeal and would be perfect for taking on long journeys. A truly interactive storytelling experience both of my girls were totally fascinated by this doodling adventure and enjoyed choosing their own different ways through the book. This book lets you draw, decide, fold and tear your way through this top secret mission.
