ELO 2015: The End(s) of Electronic Literature

Mrs. Wobbles and the Tangerine House

Mark Marino and The Marino Family (USA)

Kid E-Lit Exhibition
Tuesday, August 4 • 17:30 - 19:00 (Bergen Public Library)

This anthology of interactive children’s stories is designed for middle grade readers. The stories grow out of a magical foster care home run by a woman who may or may not be a witch. These choice-based tales combine textual narrative with game-like options, and are digital descendents of the Choose-Your-Own-Adventure gamebooks that became popular in the 1980s. The progress points in the sidebar also encourage a playful style of reading. The stories are full of humorous situations and offer children the chance to make tough choices and help these foster children through their adventures and in the process heal old wounds.  The Mrs. Wobbles stories are written by Mark Marino in collaboration with his ten-year-old daughter and eight-year-old son. Illustrations are by Brian Gallagher.
