A Present for Milo: A Touch-and-Surprise Storybook

       iOS iPad

Who’s knocking on the mouse hole? When mouse peeks out, he sees Milo…and off they go! Down the hall…through the kitchen…up the stairs…across the piano…around and around and around and around—Milo and mouse turn the house upside down as they scamper, pounce, jump and bounce through every room. It’s a spirited chase right up to the exuberant surprise ending! Every screen invites the user right into Milo’s world of toys, music, and mayhem—including a rocket, a UFO, a piano with keys that bash, paintings that jump from their frames and a giggly pack of mischievous mice.

With more than 80 tap-interactive objects that initiate more than 125 animations just right for active young fingers and minds, this interactive exciting cat-chases-mouse story is ideal for pre-readers and young readers alike. With simple vocabulary and sound-out words, A PRESENT FOR MILO provides a fun, engaging read-to or read-aloud experience at a terrific value. It’s perfect for pre-readers and young readers—all animations, narration and sound effects are activated by a simple finger tap or swipe.

It’s hours of fun with a thoroughly engaging story, animations, tap-able surprises and silly sound effects—a perfect digital storybook.
