In 1969, a lawyer named Edward Packard ran out of ideas.
Each night he made up stories to tell his daughters at bedtime, but on one particular night he couldn’t think of a story to tell.
So, he asked his daughters what his main character should do.
They got excited, suggested a slew of scenarios, and changed the lives of millions of kids in the process.
Because they made Packard realize other kids might want to influence the stories they read.
And that’s how he came up with the idea to create the now legendary Choose Your Own Adventure book series.
