Choose Your Own Adventure has announced its first interactive children’s book for the iPod. “Unlike the typical ‘one way only’ story in a narrated audiobook, the CYOA download goes in countless directions as ‘you’ in the role of main character click on links to select the story’s direction,” explains the company. “The video screen allows the user to view full color illustrations, albeit in miniature. R. A. Montgomery, CYOA author and founder, narrates the story in which ‘you’ are a skilled mountain climber on an expedition through the Himalayas in search of the elusive Yeti. Sound effects like the whirl of a helicopter or howling winds enhance the sense of immersion.” Choose Your Own Adventure #1 – “The Abominable Snowman” audiobook is available as a free download until January 25, 2007.
