Parents need to know that Ben 10 Science Friction- Kids' Book is an interactive storybook that allows users to either read the story themselves or have a voice-over narrator read it for them. The story is about a surprise alien invasion and the exploits of main character Ben as he works to vanquish the other-worldly force quickly and quietly. While there is some conflict and brief violent imagery, the story is presented in an almost carefree way where readers never really feel anyone is in imminent mortal danger.
Is it any good?
BEN 10 SCIENCE FRICTION- KIDS' BOOK has a unique, fun plot. The main character, Ben, is at a local comic book convention when one of the props on display turns out to be a real alien vessel.

The story is an easy read and provides a creative, compelling narrative with only a minimal amount of violence or conflict. The optional voice-over reads through the book with an engaging tone, and the pictures that complement the story are very well drawn. Readers who have an interest in the Ben 10 cartoon series or science fiction in general will likely thoroughly enjoy this app.
