This is the first choose-your-own-story gamebook for kids who can not read. Designed by Andrea Angiolino, it is illustrated by Valeria De Caterini.
With the Storymixer, you can make many stories about the Little Hare. Look for the tile with the yellow star, where the little hare wakes up and sees the hunters coming, and put it in front of you. In the lower right corner there is a red circle. Look for all the tiles with a red circle in the lower left corner: there are two of them, one where the little hare goes back to his den and thinks about what to do, another in which he leaves the wood and goes to the city. Choose one and put it besides the first tile: for example, choose the one in which the hare goes to town. Do you see a black circle in the lower right corner? Look for all the tiles with the black circle on the left: there are four of them, choose the one you like more… and so on, until you reach the end of the story: a tile with another star on the right.
Now you can show your story to everyone you like: your mum, a cousin, a friend… but showing it is not enough: you have to tell them your story. For example, why the hare goes to the city? Is he just scared of the hunters? Is he bored of his life in the wood? Is he curious about the city?
When you are finished, you can start again with a new story, choosing different tiles: there are so many possibilities! And when you are expert, you can decide to put together tiles without caring of the symbols, or even draw new tiles using the blank ones you found in the box.
Published in Italy. No text on the cards, so it can be easily used with kids of any nation.
