Come aboard for a swashbuckling adventure with Jolly and Roger! This new app tells the tale of Roger, a young boy who wishes to be a pirate, and two real pirates – Jolly Jock Jenkins and Captain Eggbert. In their quest for a dragon’s tear Jolly and the Captain face many obstacles, eventually leaving Jolly trapped in a treasure chest. Of course, who better to save Jolly than Roger, the would-be pirate who stumbles upon the treasure chest with wooden sword in hand?
Throughout the storybook, there are objects to interact with on each page and the story unfolds with brilliant hand-drawn animations. The graphics stand out and are perfect for the type of story being told. Among the app’s features are the “Tell Me A Tale!” or “Aarg! I’ll Read!” modes, enabling you to choose for your child’s reading level.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book, and I feel that this app would be great for anyone with a little pirate of their own!
*A note from Heather – An “Aarg! I’ll Read!” mode? Awesome!
