The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum is a classic. In the app store you will find more than one version of this classic book – and this one is wonderful.
The graphics are good and the narration is just lovely, but what makes this book special is the “magic ink”. Pages in the book are in sepia tones and color – on the sepia toned pages wait until the narration is finished and then uncover the next scene by painting with your finger. There are suprises in some of the scenes – Toto will appear and the Good Witch speaks – which is a nice touch too.
Like many eBook apps there are Read To Myself and Read to Me, in the preferences you can also choose from a male or female narrator.
I love what Magic Ink Books has acheived with this new take on an interactive books, and I really look forward to seeing how they develop their ideas into other apps.
