More About R. A. Montgomery, Whittaker Chambers, Kevin Killian, Michelle Tea, 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 The Abominable Snowman (Choose Y Own Adventure #1)?
Choosing your own adventure= so fun! Jan 4, 2007
Wow! This book is great. I remember the Choose Your Own Adventure series were some of the only books I would actually borrow from our elementery school library. It's awesome that they have kept the same stories while giving them new updated covers and artwork. I would definitely reccomend this book for any kid 7 and up, or any adult who read the series as a child. These books really made me want to read as a kid because they let you choose your own story. The Abominable Snowman is probably one of the best ones, the endings are really creative.
RL 4 - 11, Excellent Book- Self Motivation for Reading Mar 29, 2006
The Choose Your Own Adventure series is excellent to motivate your children and students to read. The book lets you make your own choices and find out what happens to your character. Kind of like a video game in a book. This particular one The Abominable Snowman is one of RA Montgomery's best and will be lauched on DVD in August of 2006. Imagine being able to make your own choices on DVD and in a Book that effect the outcome of you as the main character.
If you choose to lauch you adventure in reading, go to page 5.
If you choose to miss the biggest thing since Harry Potter, go to page 36.
Good idea, bad execution Jul 7, 1999
Back in its heyday, the "Choose Your Own Adventure" series was one of the best, most exciting series for kids there was. Especially good were the ones by Edward Packard. His colleague R.A. Montgomery wrote less successful efforts. This one displays his fondness for negative and often arbitrary endings, as well as for a sort of new agey bizarreness. Ace illustrator Grainger is always good, though I wonder to think that anyone would ever pay for a hardcover of this light text, when a paperback would do.
