Today we are announcing a very special event, the publication of T. Man’s latest homeschool writing project, Tony the Phony and the Northern Woods. It’s the second book in the Tony the Phony series. This time, however, M. Man, co-author of the first book, Tony the Phony and Cursed Mansion, chose not to participate, so T. Man went solo (with a little guidance from Mom). Both books are available on Amazon for just .99.
However, T. Man wanted to share the new release with his blog audience in its entirety. It’s another choose-your-own story, so we’ve inlisted the help of some of the Emblazon authors, who have been kind enough to host the various segments on their personal blogs. (In addition, This Kid Erik hosted a short interview with T. Man.) Start reading below, and at the end of the page, YOU have to make a choice and decide how the next part of the story will go. Each choice will take you to a different blog where you’ll make another choice. There are four possible endings. When you’re done, come on back and choose a new story route!
Have fun…and choose wisely!
Tony the Phony and the Northern Woods
by T. Man
“I can’t wait to get to your Grandpa’s and go fishing,” said Ed.
“I’m glad we got away. My mom almost caught us,” said Tony.
“Remember how much trouble we got in last year when we sneaked out of your house to go to Cursed Mansion? Your mom was as mad as a wildcat!”
“My mom will never know we’re gone. She thinks we’re at your house, and she’ll be away all weekend.”
“But we’ll be in Canada having a great time!” Ed laughed.
They biked to the airport where they each gave the pilot all the money they’d saved from their allowances for months and climbed in the tiny plane.
When they were in the air for an hour, the plane suddenly dipped. The pilot was slumped over. Ed began to panic.
“Ed, calm down,” said Tony.
“I can’t calm down when the plane is going down,” said Ed. “We’re at five thousand feet….three thousand feet…”
Bam! The plane crashed in a forest.
“Where are we?” asked Tony.
Ed peeked out the window. “Well, we haven’t crossed Lake Superior yet. I think we’re in Michigan’s upper peninsula.”
“Can you see any houses?” asked Tony.
“No, what should we do now?”
“I don’t know. Should we stay with the pilot or go for help?” Tony asked.
