A Story About Becoming a Good Witch
This highly interactive book app tells the story of how a little girl goes to school to become a witch. A prequel to the equally charming The Witch with No Name
book app, this story focuses on friendship and being a good person.
Readers help the little witch with her final exam by playing educational games that are seamlessly incorporated into the story. The witch needs to color a spider web to make a beautiful picture, so players answer math question to match the color of paint needed. To retrieve necessary items from within an ogre's stomach, players must navigate a grid full of objects by following a specific sequence of items. These games can be played at three levels of difficulty.
Told across 24 pages, this fanciful tale is full of interactive hotspots and offers a graphical style that encourages exploration. As you move your idevice around, the graphics on the page also move, so it seems as if you can peer around the edges. And each page animates as if you were watching a video, so it is highly engaging. Each character you meet is voiced by talented actors; and the app is accompanied by a varied musical score.
The Witch with No Name is a delight to explore at any time of the year, but it's especially fun on or around Halloween.
