Millie and the Lost Key
Digital books have become all the rage on
the iPhone/iPod Touch platform. Books for children have been popping up
at a regular frequency here at Family Friendly Gaming. This is neat
because companies are thinking about reaching children on this platform.
Millie and the Lost Key is the second book in the series. The first one
is out there for free.
The page for Millie and the Lost Key says it works on the iPad, iPhone 3, iPhone 4, iPod Touch 3, and iPod Touch 4. We were unable to get it working on the third generation iPod Touch. It did work on the fourth generation, and iPad just fine. We have been seeing more of this recently though.
Millie and the Lost Key does some interesting things visually. There are real life pictures and short video clips in this digital book. I have not seen that before. So that is a neat little touch. There are also interactive things in Millie and the Lost Key that remind me of a real children's book. I did not find any offensive images while reading Millie and the Lost Key.
The voice actor does a super job narrating Millie and the Lost Key. He accentuates words at just the right point. My children prefer to have one of us read the book to them. Which makes sense. They prefer to hear our voices over a strangers. Millie and the Lost Key allows for either option to be picked at the beginning.
Millie and the Lost Key has the reasonable price of $1.99. This is a great selling point for a digital book in my opinion. I can also see children reading Millie and the Lost Key over and over again. The interactive nature and mini games in Millie and the Lost Key are fun as well. Our children commented on enjoying them.
The moral to the story in Millie and the Lost Key is interesting. Seeking bacon as if it is some major treasure is the strangest quest I have ever gone on. But then this is a dog we are talking about. The cat element at the end of Millie and the Lost Key was an interesting plot twist. I hope this franchise continues with additional digital books in the future.
