Short little CYOA-style by young authors, December 27, 2016
by streever (America)

The tables are turned on a notorious thief in this cute little CYOA piece by two young authors. This piece began as an exercise in grammar, and sentences are indeed rich with adjectives and adverbs.

The piece could use more: more rooms, more stolen items, more choices, more editing, but it is a fun, cute little romp, with some humorous asides revealing a sense of whimsy and fun at the heart of this work. An especially charming moment occurs in the first failure option, when we follow the sound of barking to the guard dog, something the authors describe as a natural impulse of anyone who likes dogs.

Although a parser work, this piece felt like the classic CYOA: vocabulary is limited and options are usually obvious in this fun, short work. I hope the authors are encouraged by their final work and return to the format in the future.
