Violet's The Night Before Christmas - Interactive Storybook

December 2, 2011

By: Carisa Kluver

The Digital Media Diet

Phantom Girl puts her own twist on a holiday classic ...

This is an adorable re-telling of The Night Before Christmas, starring Violet (aka Phantom Girl). Like other titles in the Violet series by Allison Keeme & My Black Dog Books, this title has unique interactivity that is almost more like a 'lift the flap' book. Tap the stockings or presents in Santa's bag to see what is inside. The detail & whimsy of these interactive 'discoveries' makes this book a hit with readers young and old alike. Hints for interactive elements are in the form of small yellow dotted lines around the images. There are also some 'hidden' elements that have sound effects to trigger with a tap. Overall a top notch title and our highest rated version of this classic tale!

This title is one of over two dozen titles briefly reviewed for a special post in our blog for the winter holidays, 2011.

All reviews are of the app, not the platform/device. Based originally on iPad versions. Minor technical details may vary.
