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?
John Luke Robertson and Travis Thrasher have written a quirky, funny, and nutty new children’s book. Willie’s Redneck Time Machine is a make your own adventure book. But what is even more amazing is that I have one to give away to a lucky winner, but more of that at the end of this post.
If you love Duck Dynasty you will love this book. It is the type of book where you can change the story and pick you own ending. My boys now that they are older (6&8 yikes!!) already love the show, so the book was right up their alley. They had never read a make your own ending book before so this was a new experience.
The writing itself wasn’t difficult. The book say for ages 8-12 but my 8 year old handled most of it with no trouble. The quick chapters made it more likable for him because he felt as if he was reading more.
My only issue with the book was the constant use of the word “YOU.” It was suppose to be from Willie’s perspective but it kept saying “you this” and “you that.” Drove me a little bonkers. The readers is suppose to pretend to be Willie I guess.
Overall this book was cute. It is a fun read for anyone who loves watching the show. It incorporates all the character and their personalities. So if you want to WIN your very own copy, leave a comment and a winner will be picked at random on Friday October 24. GOOD LUCK!!
