An app that lets kids choose the ingredients for their story

in Books (E)

[] Paris, France - What will happen if I stir a wizard, a skeleton and a mouse together in a cauldron? Little readers of Stories and Magic Dust for iPad toss three ingredients into the big white cauldron and a story is created, just for them. A skeleton, a wizard, a dragon, a mouse and the wind - these ingredients are turned into magic dust that transforms into a special bedtime story. The reader decides who stars! There's a story of a skeleton who's afraid of a mouse, a story about a wizard who makes a dragon turn colors, a story about a frozen castle where the wind blows and more. The cauldron gives life to ten stories in all. Some of the same characters and references appear in more than one story. In each tale, the child participates in the action by pushing, touching or shaking. There's an entire tiny, magical world living in the tablet! What will the story be tonight?

This app is perfect for bedtime stories, whether read by a favorite adult or by the app. It is presented in bilingual format and the stories can be played aloud in either English or French: use one or the other, or both! It's also a lot of fun to compare the differences between the two and learn some French in the process.

The stories are written by Marie-Florence Gros, illustrated by Bertrand Dubois, with music by Jean-Marie Leau. The English version was translated by Eve Lindemuth Bodeux. English narration : Bobbin Beam. French narration : Marina Carrere d'Encausse.
