Roxie Munro is a triple threat. Munro is an author, illustrator, and app developer. She’s written and illustrated more than thirty children’s books and created an interactive app series called Kids Interactive Walk-in Storybooks also known as K.I.W.i Storybooks. Roxie was the very first guest on KidLit TV’s StoryMakers. During Roxie’s visit we were able to preview the capabilities of the K.I.W.i. Storybooks. Beautifully detailed backdrops, great storytelling, and lesson plans make the interactive storybooks a welcome addition to any classroom. Children are literally encouraged to jump into learning.
The Horn Book has reviewed several of Roxie’s apps. This time, Katie Bircher — The Horn Book’s assistant editor — took a look at Roxie’s Puzzle Adventure.
Puzzle returns users to the lavishly detailed, frequently whimsical world of A-MAZE-ing Vacation. After creating a profile (the app saves up to five individual players’ games), you enter a main screen showing the entire intricate landscape, shrouded in mist.
