Librojuegos

"And each path he takes, leading to twenty different endings, is a complete joy to read. Playfully written, full of word plays and humour, the book is not only enjoyable to kids, but even I was able to enjoy reading these stories enormously. And each and every one of these pages is illustrated beautifully by a lot of different artists (Including the author!). Every page of this book speaks of a work of love." [+] read more

Yaga's Valley

Do you know the first words that come to me if I try to explain how Nikola Raykov writes? A children’s Terry Pratchett. That says it all. The elder troll guffawed at certain passages, I did at others. Whatever I write here, it will sound too boring to do justice to the gigafun (I mean, terafun!) of holding this gem in your hands. Puzzles, riddles, adventures by the spate. Unique children’s humor. Pawsies, eyesies, tail disagreeing with one another. Ideas about important things from the world around us. Travels, meetings, partings. Insights into even more important things from the world inside us. And every time, something new and something different. Because it’s a game! [+] read more

Of course, the book will pique the interest of older readers, too.

Big Box Gamers

I don’t think it will be exaggerated to call this book a historical event for our “genre,” creating an entire new “sub-genre” (I use “genre” as the accepted term, even though gamebooks are rather a literary and game “form”). I believe The Big Adventure will make kids squeal with delight, because its writing is as brilliant as its design. Such books stimulate children’s imagination and creativity, so I heartily recommend it to you. [+] read more


Game Tale

Wordeater

The little gremlin’s main goal is to fill his unhappy rumbling tummy, but along his way he meets various characters and has amusing or even dangerous adventures, described in a pleasant style reminding me mostly of Lewis Carroll among all children’s writers I can think of. Like his late British colleague, Nikola Raykov mixes fantasy and nonsense for children. [+] read more
