With the touch screen, users can easily navigate through the book using a table of contents and bookmark feature, allowing them to jump anywhere in the story or right where they left off. The app also includes a “Paint Me” feature which allows children to color the book by finger painting over the illustrations to create their own version of the book.

One day, Manda decides to go on a journey to the Chocolate River, and the reluctant Mr. Crowley goes along for the ride to guide Manda through the dangerous path.
