The reader's decisions will determine what happens when a young American visitor to England enters the world of the Fair Folk from Elfland

Fun book!
Bought this for my wife who was reminiscing about the choose your own adventures when she was young. It is as it says it is. The story changes as you chose.
This was probably the most memorable Choose Your Own Adventure book I read as a kid, if I'm matching up the title and my memory correctly. And that is of course because I was then and am now predisposed to liking books that involve fairies, and this was the very first time I'd ever read a book in which the fair folk were hinted or shown to be NOT VERY NICE. I hadn't realized there was a dark side to the fae and hadn't read the British legends yet, and some of the endings scared the snot out of me. I was very disturbed by threats of being made to dance until I died, and really gobsmacked by an ending where I was treated super nicely and decorated with flowers and jewelry, only to wake up DEAD in my bed (no kidding; an illustration pictured a skeleton in bed, wearing all the decorations I'd worn in that plot line). I believe there was even a horrible ending in which the concept of time going faster in the fairy world manifested in me and a companion returning to our world only to see the companion crumble into dust and I became ancient within minutes.
This was my favorite choose your own adventure as a kid... And I bought it again to enjoy as an adult. I still like it a lot and plan on reading it to my daughter when she gets old enough.
Great condition. Great book from my childhood.
