Living Books: Stories and poems you bring to life!

Harry and the Haunted House by mark Schlichting.

When Harry D. Rabbit hits one of Earl's famous curve balls right over Stinky's head, it lands in the spooky old house down the street. Harry and his friends cautiously explore the house, searching for their ball, and have a host of hair-raising experiences. Before they're done, they stumble across dozens of startling sights and sounds. A hat rack that tells knock-knock jokes. A skull that tells skeleton jokes. Dancing furniture and a phone that answers itself. Even the skeletons are scared!

As Harry and his friends search the scary mansion, they discover something about themselves as well as about "haunted" houses.

Living Books are stories touched by magic. They spring to life with characters that talk and move and sing and dance. Sound effects, music, humor and lots of animations create a whole new learning experience.

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

In English and Spanish. Change from English to Spanish and back again with just a click.

Play on home stereo. Audio tracks of nine original songs are included.

Mark Schlichting is a software designer, animator, children's book author and father of three who created the original concept of Living Books. Since then, he has become one of the country's leading multimedia designers. "I have always loved storytelling and animation," he says, "and I can't think of a better job than making starfish dance and mailboxes talk."
