Arthur Christmas Movie Storybook

December 1, 2011

By: Carisa Kluver

The Digital Media Diet

Santa's son tries to deliver the one gift that got left behind.

This title is based on the holiday movie from Sony Pictures, just released last week. Like other movie-themed books from iStorytime, this app features crisp, high-definition images from the film. The story itself follows the plot of the film, a modern Christmas story where Santa has a high tech present-delivery operation and his son, Arthur, tries to help out when one present gets left behind. There isn't any real animation in this app, however there is a uniquely cool kind of interactivity. A sliding bar along the bottom of over a dozen pages moves the scene so you can animate it yourself. Otherwise this this a solidly made app, although it doesn't have highlighting with the narration or a page guide. An assortment of fun, but very short, mini-games is also included.

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.
