Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Logan and the Upside-Down Sea is a quick and cute interactive storybook with puzzles appropriate for preschoolers. The story surrounds a young brother and sister who are engaging in make-believe play in their yard when the sister is suddenly snatched up into the sky by a fishing hook. The brother (and his pet dragon) must then find a way to fly up to the Upside-Down Sea to rescue her. It is never stated whether the adventure is supposed to be real or just happens within the imagination of the children. There are several hot-spots to tap in the illustrations and a few puzzles to be solved along the way.
Is it any good?
LOGAN AND THE UPSIDE-DOWN SEA may not be packed with tons of interactive elements, but the puzzles (all of which are nicely integrated into the storyline) are well-designed for toddlers and preschoolers. Some require tapping and sliding onscreen elements, while some use the motion-sensing accelerometer of mobile devices. And there are some neat just-for-fun elements that kids will enjoy, like swishing around fallen leaves. The story is a quick and simple one, but has a good sense of imagination and wonder.
