This work presents a prototype of non-chronological open structure children narrative dedicated for tablets. How will young readers find themselves in this new environment and react to new kind of storytelling experience? Is the notion of “interactivity” just a marketing trick to sell more software and mobile apps or is it a tool that will really support a child’s development?
