Willie's Redneck Time Machine by John Luke Robertson
Willie finds a mysterious "outhouse" in the middle of the warehouse and thinks someone is playing a big joke on him. Little does he know, the "outhouse" is actually a time machine that can transport him to the past or future!
There are a myriad of different places Willie can visit because as the title of this book states, you can be your own Duck Commander! Once you reach the end of the chapter you have a choice. Whatever path you choose has a corresponding page number to go along with it. You go to that page number to find out what happens next. If you don't like the way the story ended, no problem! Go back and read it a different way!
I thought this book was pretty cute for a first try at writing. I wouldn't say that it is one of the best children's books I have read, but I am a fan of Duck Dynasty and I did enjoy it quite a bit. I would say it is aimed at children from second to third grade depending on their reading level. I think younger audiences would also enjoy it if they were being read to. It's not a terribly long book. My third grader could probably read through one of the stories in a half hour or so, but I imagine she would probably want to go back and read other versions of this story.
I have no complaints about this book, and I look forward to reading more books by John Luke Robertson in the future! I rate this book as 4 stars!
I received two copies of this book for free from Tyndale Publishers in exchange for my honest unbiased opinion.
