SuperKids Educational Software Review

"And what an adventure it is. The game takes the player on a journey—a quest of sorts. Madeline must recover a magic lantern and its genie that was stolen from her at the outset of the story. To do so, she must travel from France to Switzerland, Italy, and finally to Turkey. In each of these countries she must accomplish certain tasks to advance."

"As a girls software contender, this is a real winner. Every aspect of the game from its animation and sound (the French accents are pleasingly euphonic) to the tale it weaves is delightful. Although it most appropriate for those on the older end of the age spectrum, parents will be surprised at how much they enjoy time spent with younger children on this endeavor."
