The Prisoner of Carrot Castle. I love the carrots to change each page. They also cannot be accidentaly pressed on you have to pull the carrot out of the wall to change pages. There is a little bit of interactivity throughout this book. It is something every child will relate to not wanting to eat their vegetables at dinner time. Aiden gets transported of with his imagination to a faraway land where he is trapped in prison inside a carrot. To escape he must do what he doesn't want to do. Once he escapes he hides up a tree (which isn't a tree at all) to find out its broccoli and again he has to do the unthinkable. When he gets captured he then gets in trouble for eating these vegetables. When he finally emerges from his imagination he has eaten all his vegetables on his plate. Maybe we should all get our children to imagine a story so they will eat their veges. A lovely story. Highly recommended.

The Prisoner of Carrot Castle is an interactive book about a boy who does NOT want to eat his vegetables. The story is cute and the narration and animations are good. I like that to turn a page you must "pull out" the carrot. It requires more effort than simply pushing an arrow key and hopefully helps children choose to go to the next page instead of flipping quickly from page to page without reading the story. (My son does this often!) At the end of the story there are some dress up games to play.
