Elfishki and The Unwelcome Guest – Magical iPad Story

Elfishki and the Unwelcome Guest (by Elka Palka Production) is an original kids’ interactive iPad storybook that presents a magical story filled with mythical Elfishki creatures and a storyline revolving around new friendships, all while developing conscious reading skills and encouraging a love for reading in elementary school-age children. One of the first things about this application that will grab your attention is the stunning graphics, interesting sounds, and quality animation — which exemplify an obvious attention to detail. The story is delivered in either Russian or English, with the option to have it narrated or read alone, with easy turn page icons in the lower right and left of the book, icons to turn on or off sounds, plenty of interactive opportunities, as well as a question icon (including 3 questions) for almost every page (in the lower middle on each page) for reinforcing your child’s imagination, comprehension, overall understanding, and logical sequence for what is happening or going to happen next in the story. Every other page within the book contains no text, just a stunning interactive picture along with the 3 question option (again) for kids to ponder and answer.

Aside from the engaging storyline about Vince, Brungildo, Maggie, and Jeanso, there is a sort of look and find bonus game featuring Jeanso and his backpack. In this bonus game an item is presented for you to find and place in Jeanso’s backpack. Speaking of Jeanso’s backpack, one playful and cool touch that I enjoyed was before playing the game; you are given a “Yes” or “No” option to play the game, if you select “No” Jeanso’s backpack blows up, which was an unexpected surprise. I think Elfishki and the Unwelcome Guest delivers an interesting story with stunning graphics, quality sound and animation creating a wonderful and culturally different reading experience for both children and their parents.

Brand new magical fairy tale from the makers of an acclaimed interactive animated book “Elfishki and The Giant Cake”:

Once upon a time, on the beautiful Rainbow Island in the middle of the Sparkling Sea lived magical little people called Elfishki.

Some of them could fly like butterflies and some could swim like mermaids. They shared the island with animals who could speak and trees who did not talk, but understood everything. All in all, this was a place where miracles happened every day.

One morning, an ice cream seller named Vince and his friend, a dragon named Brungildo, went to their garage for the freezer boxes. But they couldn’t get inside. Vince kept putting his key into the keyhole, but it would just fall out—as if somebody pushed it back. Vince peeked into the keyhole and was dumbfounded—inside the lock was a tiny blue person with a tail…
