Charles Dickens: Ghost Stories. The immersive book

Age Level: Ages: 12 +

Enmesh yourself in some of Charles Dickens' ghost stories, as pages comes to life via interactive illustrations accompanied by captivating music. Tap pages to see what your fingers inspire!

Not necessarily for the too faint of heart, but those who seek a chilling “literary” experience will enjoy. The app includes 4 of his works: Christmas Ghost, The Ivy Green, The Lawyer and the Ghost and A Madman's Manuscript. With the Victorian tradition of telling stories of ghost and horror on Christmas Eve, most of Dickens' “darker” tales are published for this time of the year.

These literary works should be accompanied by a dictionary. Learning new words is an important part of expanding vocabulary and increasing knowledge.

The app includes a bio on Charles Dickens, giving you some insight into his Rags to Riches story. I found it very interesting and enlightening.
