A Spooky Tale
This twelve-page interactive book app tells the story of four friends who accidentally hit a baseball into an old ramshackle house. As they enter the house to retrieve their ball, their imaginations run wild. A dusty old mirror showing their huddled reflection appears to be a 3-headed monster. A fluttering old drapery looks like a ghost. Creaking floorboards from above, followed by thumping, turns out to be their dog retrieving the missing ball. It's a rollicking fun tale about how we imagine things that aren't really there.
Two Modes for Reading
Harry and the Haunted House offers two different modes for reading -- Read to Me or Let Me Play -- both of which highlight the words when read and allow readers to touch words to hear them spoken again. In addition to a charming story, the pages of the book app are chock-full of interactive spots where touching things produces whimsical animations. Daisies sing, chairs dance, and ladybugs prance in a Conga line. On every page, readers can switch between English, Spanish, and French with just the touch of a button.
