A beautifully illustrated children's story written to amuse and challenge the young learner . There is a variety of challenging phonics to practice on ; a welcome feature for bilingual young learners . The storyline is amusing with twists and turns, even though it uses the more popular cahracters such as a knight,a princess,a witch, monsters and pirates! The interactivity in text and images is entertainning .The most sensational feature ,however, is the brilliant narration by Michael Maloney.
The app can be used as a reader or it can be read in class .For more creativity teachers can invite children to record their voices and playback the narration.There are colour-in pages and clips with accompanying music .The official website offers free downloadable activities for classroom or party activities.My class has had great fun reading the story and enacting parts for a play.
I look forward to seeing the whole series in hard copy becoming book apps .
Look out for the Wiggly Woos and Sir Charlie Stinky Socks!
