When I got assigned my interactive narrative project my first thought was that when I was a kid I wished that I could interact with the characters and make them do what I wanted. The images are already so personal that I wanted to interact with them, get to know them. For me a interactive website is a perfect way to grab children's attention. I can guide them to the story with illustrations and give leave them at a cliff-hanger to make their choices.
These illustration were a inspiration to me as they use simple colours to not over complicate the information for the children. It gets them more involved with the story. Also the children look like they are different ages so the target audience will be broader.
