[prMac.com] Melbourne, Australia - Arrr! A treasure hunt is afoot, as MiBooks are proud to announce the release of their brand new kids adventure book, "Argus Pegleg and the Treasure of Eyepatch Island". In Argus Pegleg, you are first mate to the fearsome Captain Pegleg, sailing the seven seas on the pirate ship Blackstone in search of Eyepatch Island and the buried treasure it holds.
Argus Pegleg'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 Argus Pegleg is also particularly appealing to young children.
In Argus Pegleg, the reader can get involved in the story by entering their name at the beginning of the book, so that their name is included in the book whenever the First Mate character is mentioned, and to make decisions about which direction the story should take. This type of interaction allows the reader to feel more involved in the flow of the story.
Argus Pegleg, 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 Argus Pegleg.
