The Intergalactic Bus Trip Reviews
This book had an error in one puzzle that had me tearing my hair out. I sat and retraced the instructions on the map over and over and could never end up at a planet. Because they mixed up east and west as drawn on the map. Grrr.Out of all the puzzle books in this collection, this was the most frustrating and least interesting.
Since working at the library for a few months, I started to get interested in the Usborne Puzzle Adventure books for older children, which I used to read as a child. Through some nostalgia, I picked up every copy my library had, with a mind to reserve from other libraries every other title I could get my hands on in the future.Apart from my nostalgic obsession, The Intergalactic Bus Trip is an interesting puzzle book. Each page has a continuation of the story and a puzzle to solve before being able to move on to the next page and part of the story. Sometimes you had to remember seeing something previously and go back to find the answer. I quite liked the story of the aliens and different planets, and actually decided to read it with my boyfriend (who also read them as a child). We put on funny voices and turned it into some fun. Some of the puzzles were a bit stupid, and not exactly easy for children, but I remember always looking at the answers anyway. Now that I'm older I seem to have more scruples about cheating!
