I'm hooked. I can't wait to watch/read more chapters. I am also curious to explore the ways that teachers use this in the classroom. The storytelling is quick and the animations are flashy, but this might be a preference for younger generations who are used to speedy media.

In a word, WOW!  This is an interactive digital story.  It has your interest in the first chapter and you want to read more to find out what happens next.  It would be an excellent and engaging tool to use in a reading classroom.

This is a wonderful example of digital storytelling.  Over time, new stories are added and each is enaging and an excellent reason for children to work on reading skills.  The stories take advantage of technology and the technology enhances the story rather than simply being an "add-on."

I teach adults about critical thinking.  The lesson plans along with the intriguing pictures and texts demonstrate how to delve into a subject beyond the written words.  Excellent.

A great introduction, and good students sample, of digital storytelling. Students can definitely see the creative opportunities available if given such an assignment. Very easy to use and apply in a classroom (both face=-to-face and online).
