"Did the double-crossing pirate make prisoners walk the plank, or turn people into toads? Was he sailing in a weather-beaten ship, or crouching in a big black cauldron?

"You decide how the story goes in this hilarious mix-and-match book. The sliced-up paes provide hundreds of silly story combinations to try - from the blundering detective who's been known to kiss frogs if he can remember how, to the wicked witch who makes prisoners walk the plank if you as her nicely.

"Everytime you change the story, the pop-up faces change, too - from two crazed bloodshot eyes glaring over a mouth full of yellowing fangs, to a pair of spangled spectacles perched above a foul warty chin."
