Description

You are about to embark on a dangerous adventure...

You become lost in the mountains after an emergency landing. Among the snowy peaks, you are at risk from falling victim to hypothermia, being buried by an avalanche, or stumbling into a deep crevasse. In your backpack, you have a sleeping bag, a snow shovel, a water bottle, a bag of nuts and an old survival journal belonging to your grandfather. You must decide which route to take and which dangers to face. One bad decision could lead to disaster…

This adventure-filled game-book features multiple options so readers can choose which path to take, as well as a pop-out probability spinner for extra drama. Throughout, young adventurers will learn about real-life survival techniques, from building a snow cave and signaling for help to avoiding avalanches and confronting bears. You can choose how much you want to risk in the game. Some options are more dangerous than others... Take care youngster. 

Have you got what it takes to survive?

The author

Emily Hawkins is a writer and editor of children’s books for all ages. She wrote the New York Times bestseller Oceanology, as well as several other titles in the Ology series, which has sold over 16 million copies worldwide. She holds a first-class English degree from Nottingham University, and now lives in Winchester with her young family.

R. Fresson makes illustrations that nod to the past. She hand-draws in pen and ink, then colours digitally, inspired by the print processes of early 20th century comics and magazines. Her line-work is lodged in the ligne-claire style, made famous by Hergé, Joost Swarte, Bob de Moor and Theo van den Boogaard among many others. Humour is an important aspect to R. Fresson’s work and she continues to develop a witty practice with a dextrous vintage aesthetic, working with clients including the New York Times, Monocle, The Guardian, GQ and The New Yorker.
