The Wrong Book

One of my son’s favourite apps is The Wrong Book. It is written by his favourite Australian author – Nick Bland.

This is the story of Nicholas Ickle who is trying to tell a story but he is constantly interupted by characters from other stories.

This app features some excellent interactive features that really engage children as they contribute to the chaos that Nicholas Ickle faces as he continues his attempt to tell the story.

Another fantastic feature is the rich expression and emotion from the narrator.  It has really helped my son develop his reading prowess. (The narrator is Australian comedian Frank Woodley.)

It is also possible for children to record their own narration for each page.
