[prMac.com] Melbourne, Australia - It's time to take off and explore the wonders of the solar system, as MiBooks are proud to announce the release of their brand new kids adventure book, "Angus and Max Blast Off!". In Angus and Max Blast Off, a mysterious noise from the backyard wakes Angus from his sleep, and he soon finds himself taking off into the wonderous depths of the solar system with his eager dog Max. Angus and Max travel through the entire solar system, seeing planets, moons and asteroid fields on the way to the fascinating dwarf planet Pluto.
Angus and Max's interactive style engages children whilst they are reading, allowing them to touch and interact with objects and characters that provide rich visual and aural feedback to the reader, including story-driven animation. The illustration style of Angus and Max is also particularly appealing to young children.
In Angus and Max, the reader can get involved in the story by helping Angus complete a variety of tasks in order for the story to progress, such as handing Angus an item he needs or pressing a button to launch the rockets of a spaceship. This type of interaction allows the reader to feel more involved in the flow of the story.
Angus and Max also presents some interesting and odd facts about the planets that make up our solar system, both in the text of the book and hidden on various pages throughout the book.
Angus and Max, as with the other books in the MiBooks brand, allows the reader to read the book themselves, with a parent, or have it read to them with the aid of voiceover audio. This is perfect for some younger readers, who aren't yet ready to read the book themselves but still want to enjoy the adventure and fun of Angus and Max Blast Off.
