Goal! The Unlikely Substitute strikes its way onto the App Store

As you and your family head to the stadium on the day of the football cup final, could an injury to a star player lead to an odd and unlikely new player to take to the field, with a chance of becoming a hero? Choose your team, your colours and the direction the story takes as you try to help your team achieve fame and cup glory!

The Unlikely Substitute’s interactive style engages children whilst they are reading, allowing them to touch and interact with objects and characters that provide rich visual and aural feedback to the reader, including story-driven animation. The illustration style of The Unlikely Substitute is also particularly appealing to young children.

In The Unlikely Substitute, the reader can get involved in the story by making decisions about which direction the story should take. This type of interaction allows the reader to feel more involved in the flow of the story.

The Unlikely Substitute, as with the other books in the MiBooks brand, allows the reader to read the book themselves, with a parent, or have it read to them with the aid of voiceover audio. This is perfect for some younger readers, who aren’t yet ready to read the book themselves but still want to enjoy the adventure and fun of The Unlikely Substitute.
