More About R. A. Montgomery, Mariano Trod, Claudio Griglio, Andres Rossi, Timothy Liu, Kelly L. Cozza & Jocelyn Soffer
Raymond A. Montgomery is the founder of the Choose Your Own Adventure interactive children's book series. Montgomery synthesized all of his varied educational and game theory work in the Choose Your Own Adventure (CYOA) series, first published by Bantam Books in 1979. The series grew into a publishing phenomenon with over 180 titles and 250 million copies published worldwide in over 35 languages. The books were unique in that they appealed equally to girls and boys, to reluctant readers and avid ones. The CYOA series has been used in classrooms from early elementary school to college. At the advent of the Internet age, the series was used frequently in curricula focused on explaining the interactivity of the World Wide Web to young children. After a successful stint in the mid-to-late-90's designing games for CD-ROM, Montgomery decided to re-launch the CYOA series based on the interest he was getting from former fans. Montgomery and partners Shannon Gilligan and Gordon Troy, Esq. have turned their full attentions to Choose Your Own Adventure since Fall 2004. The series is being reissued through Chooseco LLC, in Waitsfield, Vermont. R.A. MONTGOMERY is an avid outdoorsman. He has hiked in the Himalayas, climbed mountains in Europe, scuba-dived in Central America, and sailed in Franco-phone Africa .He has lived in France, travels frequently to Asia, and calls Vermont home. His interests include macroeconomics, geo-politics, mythology, history, mystery novels, and music. He has two grown sons, a daughter-in-law, and two granddaughters.
R. A. Montgomery currently resides in Warren, in the state of Vermont.
Reviews - What do customers think about Silver Wings (Choose Your Own Adventure: Classic #23) (Choose Y Own Adventure)?
The page numbers are messed up! Jun 10, 2008
Yes, I understand that it does not go page 1, 2, 3, 4, etc. That was part of the fun. If you follow the original page directions, this one has you planning your trip, then crashing (no leaving the airport, and no flight), then somehow you are in the air flying again & worrying about your friends, and then you are in a 4x4 (without landing or getting into the 4x4) with a friend that you thought was possibly hurt on the previous page & looking for your copilot who had been with you the page before and suddenly is gone. With NO between plot. C'mon CYOA people, where's the proofreading? This book has the page numbers all wrong. For example, page 4 says "turn to page 58." Well, I'm pretty sure it should be "8" and I've been trying to figure it all out & correct the numbers, but I guess I'll give up and try another one.
I'm not sure if I have a special copy, but I checked this out from the library because I loved this series as a kid and I thought my boys would enjoy it too. If I had bought this I would have been really upset. It is the paperback version, from Chooseco publishing with revised text in 2006. The book felt brand new in 6/2008.
Big disappointment, please don't waste your money. Try another CYOA book, but you may want to give it a test run at your local library first.
