GameTale: A Magical Gamebook for Little Children

Once upon a time, maybe five hours ago, or three minutes from now, there lived a man. He and his family dwelled in a small house in a very small village, in a very small country, but he had BIG ideas. And so one night he began to write a book for his very small son. The book was unlike any other. Yes, it was funny and full of kindness and adventure, but most important of all, the book was magical! It was so magical that even had twenty different endings!

But this man, he was really kind of strange, so he decided to give away his magic for free. Many people told him that he is crazy and that magic costs money. But he said 'magic is not mine to sell' and uploaded his work on the internet.

And the book became famous. Everybody felt the magic and wanted to read it: children, parents and teachers. Everybody wanted to give it a prize or award. And so the man was no longer just “a man”, but a “children's book author”. And like such an author he had to write a second book, which was BIGGER and BETTER and it even received the BIGGEST award in his small country. So the “children's book author” became a “famous children's book author”, which was now way too long to spell or pronounce.

And that's how those books grew up to be TOO BIG for the small country and decided to go on a BIG adventure! So how does the story end? Well, this is a magical story and the ending is up to you!

Now over to me
