Out of the Question

April 19, 2013

The Digital Media Diet

Original and charming storybook ...

Written and illustrated by Marc Smith, this lovely book app reads more like a long poem than a typical storybook. Out of the Question features well-crafted rhyming verse and gorgeous, lightly animated artwork in a solidly made app. The narration is soothing, with piano music in the background, although the text does not highlight as read. There is no interactivity (beyond page turning) in this long (55 page) book, making it a great bedtime read. A lot of challenging vocabulary (5/6th grade reading level) makes this title ideal for ages 8 and up, although children and adults of all ages will enjoy listening to and watching the story about a girl who can fly.

Recommended.

The moment is here and can’t be undone.
The Featherly twins, alike in all ways but one.
One thing unusual separated this pair,
Angelika, the youngest, floated high in the air.

Join Angelika, a 10 year old girl who was born with the mysterious power to float in the air. Together with her twin sister Angelina, they soar into an adventure over the high seas. The twins cross paths with a sea captain, a pink whale and others, but worst of all, Angelika will have to confront her greatest fear.
