A Living Book by Eli Noyes

In this offbeat adventure, we follow Ruff on a far-ranging hunt for his wayward bone. His search takes us down a deep, dark hole in the earth and high up into the clouds. Fearlessly, he travels to a faraway jungle, then below the seas to a sunken ship and off to other exotic locations. Along the way, we meet a pair of playful monkeys, stars that sing, tap-dancing jeans, a friendly robot and dozens of other wacky characters. Can he find his special bone and get home again?

Living Books are touched by magic. Characters talk and move, sing and dance. Sound effects, music, humor and lots of animations, create a whole new learning experience.

Children just point and click. So they can repeat a favorite part, go back or skip ahead, all at their own pace.

Reading skills grow through word recognition. As the computer reads them aloud, individual words, phrases and lines are highlighted.

Reviews:

ComputerLife, October 1994

"Soon, though, I was hooked and I wanted to coax her out of the chair so that I could play. When she went to bed (finally!), I leaped at the chance to experience Living Books first-hand. I wasn't alone, Before long, half the party was taking turns with Arthur's Teacher Trouble, Just Gandma and Me, and my favorite - Ruff's Bone. Each colorfully illustrated story is filled with charming, high-quality artwork and great narration. You can sit back and have the story read to you (couch-potato mode), but the adults at the party found that the real fun is clicking around on the screen.

"Almost every detail on every page came alive with a click of the mouse. Before long we had rabbits scampering, flowers singing, even fence posts goosing Grandma. It was like being inside a Saturday morning cartoon, only better. The imagination stuffed into these discs is amazing - and addictive to children of all ages."
