The Girl in the Spaceship - Interactive eBook

A journey through the stars to a distant land ...

This original book app features interactive and lightly animated elements that are fun, although not particularly related to the storyline. A planet, much like earth, receives a mysterious visitor who gives the creatures she finds color and names. This 'girl' from the spaceship is an interesting character but not one that is very well developed.

The app features graphic illustrations and futuristic sound effects that give the app an 'other-worldly' feel. The app, from the self-publishing platform Talespring, is well made with simple arrow page turning and an easy to read, generic font. Sound effects inlclude high-tech sounds and birds chirping. Graphic elements are entertaining but not especially well integrated with the story overall.

Interactive and animated touches make this app fun for kids, with birds that move across the page and spinning planets. Young readers will find the reading level relatively easy even if the short tale is a bit unsatisfying overall. This first story from FunkiFrog is promising with many elements still to be explored more deeply.

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