"Engrossing"
- Shelly, mother of Eloise, discerning 9 y/o reader.

StoryBook is more than just a collection of stories- it actually uses a "Story Engine" which allows you to place you (or your child, if you’re a carer) into the story, and will never tell that story exactly the same way twice. Think of it as a digital story book that you can read time and time again.

There are many uses for StoryBook- Have you ever needed to babysit and wondered how you could keep them entertained? Tap their names into the story and youre good to go!

Children will learn new words every time you read them a story. Genres range from simple "At Home" stories to exciting space adventures.

StoryBook is not a picture book; its designed to be read in the same way as a book of text is. But just like a real story book, it will entertain them at bedtime or on long trips in the car.

This lite version gives you three stories to try.

The full version has twelve stories built-in, and allows you to customize not only the hero of the story, but also any sidekick, enemy or henchman that might appear in that story.

Heres a sample of a few pages from the "Spy Adventure" story, demonstrating how each reading is different:

-------------------------------------
"How DARE you be so facetious when youre in such a serious predicament!" he barked.
Julie knew when Gus was giving her a signal, and this was one of those moments.
She reached into her suitcase and retrieved the Jam Jammer, flicking it into the on position as she did so.
The screen started to crackle and buzz, and in an instant, Sylars face was gone.
But the cars auto navigation was now also jammed, and as a result it swerved and screeched all over the road!
Julie tossed the Jam Jammer to Gus and desperately tried to regain control.
Julie wrestled with the wheel, almost hit a road safety billboard, then eventually brought the car to a halt, narrowly missing an old lady walking her tiny puppies.
-------------------------------------

- and the next time:

-------------------------------------
"How DARE you be so disrespectful when youre in such a frightful jam!" he barked.
Julie knew when Gus was giving her a signal, and this was one of those moments.
She reached into her suitcase and retrieved the Jam Jammer, flicking it into the on position as she did so.
The screen started to crackle and buzz, and in an instant, Sylars face was gone.
But the cars auto navigation was now also jammed, and as a result it swerved and screeched all over the road!
Julie tossed the Jam Jammer to Gus and frantically tried to regain control.
Julie wrestled with the wheel, almost hit an old lady pushing a pram, then eventually brought the car to a halt, narrowly missing a crowd of schoolchildren on their way to their graduation ceremony.
