(Book read on May 1st, 2014,  from a review copy received from the publisher via NetGalley, in exchange of an honest review.)


A sea creature is on the loose at Wild-World Beach! Will the gang stick together or split up? Should Shaggy and Scooby tackle their fears or their hunger first? Does Scooby-Doo deserve a Scooby Snack? In this interactive story, YOU CHOOSE the path the gang should take. With your help, they'll solve this maritime mystery.

For ages 7-12. From the You Choose Stories: Scooby-Doo series. A new series of You Choose Books featuring Scooby-Doo and his friends Fred, Velma, Daphne, and Shaggy! These mysteries feature fun, action-packed stories (and illustrations!) that allow the reader to choose their own path. In each book, with the help of the reader, Scooby and the gang will solve spooky mysteries and expose common criminals in a truly dynamic reading experience.


My Thoughts on the Book:

The Secret of the Sea Creature is a fun & exciting choose your own ending story. There are 14 endings, and obviously I read them all. The only ones that I didn't have a blast with were Velma's, hers ended too quick, but the others were so much fun. I also loved that almost all of the endings were different a.k.a the reason for the sea creature & the one(s) responsible for it were different, so that made it even more fun.

The stories were funny (it's Scooby-Doo, of course they were funny), adventurous, interesting & fun. I loved the characters (of course), and the illustrations are quite beautiful, and totally loved them.

I highly recommend this book for every child, even adult (if you're Scooby-Doo fan like me). You wouldn't want to miss it!

  1. I always liked those Choose Your Own Adventure books from back in the day, so this sounds like fun. Glad they're still doing interactive books like this, I think kids would love being able to pick different endings. It's nice to see Scooby Doo still around too...
