App DescriptionWhoâ€™s knocking on the mouse hole? When mouse peeks out, he sees Miloâ€¦and off they go! Down the hallâ€¦through the kitchenâ€¦up the stairsâ€¦across the pianoâ€¦around and around and around and aroundâ€”Milo and mouse turn the house upside down as they scamper, pounce, jump and bounce through every room. Itâ€™s a spirited chase right up to the exuberant surprise ending! Every screen invites the user right into Miloâ€™s world of toys, music, and mayhemâ€”including a rocket, a UFO, a piano with keys that bash, paintings that jump from their frames and a giggly pack of mischievous mice.
With more than 80 tap-interactive objects that initiate more than 125 animations just right for active young fingers and minds, this interactive exciting cat-chases-mouse story is ideal for pre-readers and young readers alike. With simple vocabulary and sound-out words, A PRESENT FOR MILO provides a fun, engaging read-to or read-aloud experience at a terrific value. Itâ€™s perfect for pre-readers and young readersâ€”all animations, narration and sound effects are activated by a simple finger tap or swipe.
Itâ€™s hours of fun with a thoroughly engaging story, animations, tap-able surprises and silly sound effectsâ€”a perfect digital storybook.
