Review:

Max's pup, Percival, has gone missing! Join Max and his friend, Meredith, as they explore Evergale in search of their wayward pal. Max and Meredith: The Search for Percival, is a choose-your-own-adventure style, interactive storybook for children aged five years and younger. It features two play modes: Storybook mode, in which parents and children read and explore the story together without narration, and Narrator mode, in which the story is presented to the users. In both of these modes, children are given various choices throughout the story; for example, should the friends go on a search for Percival? Or, should they try to lure him home with his favorite song? Each of these choices changes the story line and results in eight unique stories. Not only does this variety increase the long-term play and learning values of the app, but it puts a sense of control in the hands of children, which in turn promotes independence and engagement. The story is simple, the illustrations colorful, and the interactive features subtle and not distracting.
