In this four-book juvenile fiction series featuring the popular Robertson family of Duck Commander and written by Phil's grandson John Luke Robertson (with Travis Thrasher), readers are invited to participate in the zany fun of the Duck Commander world. After a few chapters, readers can choose to go down different paths--all filled with humor and life lessons.In this volume, Willie finds a mysterious wooden crate in the Duck Commander warehouse. Only John Luke is around, so the two of them open up the box and find a strange device. It turns out it's a time machine that looks a bit like an outhouse. Willie and John Luke test out the machine and find themselves journeying back and forth in time. They have crazy adventures but know they need to make it back to West Monroe. But will they make the right choices to get back at the right time?

My Impressions: 

I have never watched Duck Dynasty, but my kids do and when my daughter saw this book up for review she insisted I get it. We own pretty much every type of choose your own adventure book there is out there so this was one more to add to our growing collection. I adore books like this. They let your children lead, open their imagination, and learn about consequences through the decision the make for each character. They are always fun and enjoyable and can be read numerous times with different endings. So you basically feel like you get several books just by purchasing one.

This is the fourth book in this series and in it we are taken on a wonderful adventure with the use of a magic outhouse time machine! Yep, you read correctly-a outhouse time machine. My kids thought this was disgusting and hysterical at the same time which led to some ...... imaginative outhouse discussions before we ever began reading the book. This book takes us to places we would love to go, back into time during the days of Noah all the way through the 80's and even into future wars. 

I know the book is aimed at kids 8-12, but my 15 year old daughter and 19 year old son also both really enjoyed it as did not 8 year old. These are timeless books that people of all ages can get a laugh out of and escape to a different time and place and relieve some of your own fond memories. What I love most about books like this are the discussions they can open up with your family. Easy series to recommend to all ages.

Giveaway: Comment on this blog by November 1st and I will award one  randomly drawn person a copy of Willie's Redneck Time Machine
