Games
Finn and the Dragon
Finn’s in trouble again – whilst playing with water balloons, he accidentally hit his next-door neighbour! As he runs away, he finds himself in front of a castle…and facing a huge dragon! Can he and Sir Edward defend the castle and drive away the evil dragon?
Finn in the Jungle
Finn was only trying to defend his family from intruders – he didn’t mean to trip his sister Jenny into the flower bed. Sulking, he storms into the jungle, meeting wild cats, deadly snakes and hungry crocodiles. But someone is cutting down all the trees in the jungle. Can Finn and his new friend Joey the Orangutan stop them?
Finn and the Pirates
Finn’s mother has warned Finn not to splash around in the bath – but he just can’t resist! Suddenly an extra-large wave washes him out to sea, where he’s rescued by a fishing boat crewed by Captain Flint, Long John and Fat Pete. And when they’re attacked by pirates, Finn has the perfect plan…
I received copies of Finn and the Dragon, and Finn and the Pirates from the publicist JKSCommunications in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own and come from personally reading and experiencing the content.
Finn is an energetic, precocious, yet lovable little boy. Children all ages, and adults too, can relate to his adventurous nature. If there’s trouble to be made and friendship and love to be had, Finn is the one in charge!
The eBook has been developed as an interactive app. Each page of the book has textual dialogue for children to work through but those pages also have intriguing illustrations with interactive click points. Joyful noise of the Pirates’ Argh! and a Dragon’s fiery breathe.
These eBooks were a hit with both my 7 year old and 10 year old. I look forward to Finn in the Jungle and further Finn Adventures.
