What do ghosts and spectres eat? Hot air with pebbles? Cauliflower
chocolate? No thanks! Little yellow socks, of course...
Poor Willy, trapped in the castle with nothing to eat, is only a ghost of
his former self and needs some yellow socks to restore his powers badly.
Help Max to find every spectres favorite food in a truly spooky
adventure: meet genies, poltergeists, jinxed pictures and - hooah - the most
ghastly of all ghosts: Cruella Gruesome - an apparition with an attitude!
This delightful title is the third in the series to feature this lovable
character. The charming animated interactive story leads children through the
secret passages and dungeons of the eerie Newswinestein castle in their quest
to help Max's friend.

"This is a sweet colorful little game that should keep younger children
happy for hours...Max is an adorable character and the castle's various rooms
are teeming with silly surprises. My favorites are the hippie ghost who plays
air guitar and a painting full of moving stampeding pigs."
School Library Journal by Kate Houston, March 2000
"Using this educational and fun program,
young children will learn counting, color recognition, and sequencing through
repetition. Throughout each step of Max's mission to find 12 yellow socks
hidden in the castle for Willie the ghost, sentences are read aloud and shown
to users onscreen. These sentences can be repeated or stopped with just a click
of the mouse...All the while, talking pcitures, animals, and ghosts praise and
encourage Max during his mission. Attractive watercolor illustrations provide
artistic diversity. Each room provides countless clicking opportunities leading
to secret passages, hidden rooms, and Willie the ghost. Children will enjoy
helping Max on his mission while learning basic skills."
