1. Book board games and my failure as a parent

This summer we’ve been lucky enough to chance upon some children’s book inspired board games as we’ve trawled our way through charity shops.

Now I have a confession to make: I’m not a fan of board games.

I play them because I know as an engaged parent I’m meant to play them with my kids but I’ll be honest, it’s always a struggle for me when the kids ask to play such a game.

However, if anything will get me willing to give a board game a go, having a link to children’s books is a good start.

First we found this Peter Rabbit game. We hadn’t looked out our Beatrix Potter books in ages (even though we have teeny-tiny 5cm ones which I just adore) so it was a perfect opportunity to revisit Jeremy Fisher and Hunca Munca (in the Tale of Two Bad Mice) – both favourites from when the girls were little.

bookboardgame3

Next we found a Princess and the Pea game, which has been a huge hit because the game pieces are so very lovely – real little pillows, mattresses and blankets.

bookboardgame2

Our two favourite traditional re-tellings of The Princess and the Pea are both published by Floris books: The Princess and the Pea, illustrated by Maja Dusíková (here’s our review, plus an activity which my girls still rave about to this day), and their forthcoming An Illustrated Treasury of Hans Christian Andersen’s Fairy Tales, illustrated by Anastasiya Archipova. Both books have classical, romantic watercolour illustrations, with a vintage feel, and the anthology in particular would make a great present.

Our star find this summer, however, has been an Asterix board game, complete with menhirs and rotten fish.

bookboardgame1

This game not only has really fun pieces, I’ve even (moderately) enjoyed playing it, at it requires more than just rolling the dice, combining memory with luck and plenty of opportunities for mental arithmetic.

This flavourwire article has 10 more literary themed board games, including ones inspired by Animal Farm, The Little Prince, Moby Dick and Beowulf!

I’ve also come across…

  • Tales of the Arabian Nights board game:
  • Robinson Crusoe board game:
  • Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective board game:
  • Lord of the Rings board game
  • Vintage Wizard of Oz board game
  • Diary of a Wimpy Kid Cheese Touch board game
  • Room on the Broom Dragon Chase Board Game
  • We’re Going on a Bear Hunt board game
  • Monopoly: The Marvel Comics version
  • Do you have a favourite board game inspired by a children’s book? Have you any tips for turning me into someone who will willingly play board games ;-) ?

    2. Interview at Bartography: Video Games & Me

    Image source: Wikimedia Commons

    Image source: Wikimedia Commons

    Chris Barton, author of many excellent children’s books including that Peterson family favorite, Shark vs. Train, is celebrating the impending launch of his newest book, Attack! Boss! Cheat Code!, by interviewing other authors about their relationship with video games. Today it’s my turn. I had a blast (Asteroids reference, get it?) answering his questions. You know how I love me my games. :)

    Excerpt:

    CB: What games did you play the most when you were a kid? What did you love about them?

    MW: We got an Atari 2600 when I was around 8th or 9th grade. I. LOVED. THAT. THING. Fave game: Adventure. The way the dragons curled up when you stabbed them! I went through a whole blissful nostalgia-binge not long ago, revisiting Adventure on a desktop version. It’s amazing the wave of feelings it conjures up. That exhilaration of discovery; the happy state of tension I love in a game.

    Naturally I had to give a big shoutout to Glitch, the best game of all time (sniff).

    Here's a fun thing we did at the pub.
    Close your eyes, then someone tells you what to draw: an animal that's doing one specific thing.
    Here are mine:

    Hey! Guess what!
    I am running Treasure Maze again, this time in Den Bosch, the Netherlands - not at all far away from Amsterdam. It will be part of the absolutely wonderful Playful Arts Festival. Tell everyone who can get to it, it will be the best thing ever! 19th to 22nd of this month - that's this week!!


    My game will be built out of one hundred and fifty meters of cardboard. I think that's all I really need to say. Just take a moment to imagine that. - Yep, it's even better than that.

    8. Weeds into Toys

    Arrowhead Weed toy

    Hi again folks. What have you been up to? I hope it’s getting warm and green wherever you are.

    Here in Charlotte it’s very warm now, too warm, but it’s been exciting to see all the flowers make an appearance, and inevitably, there are lots of weeds popping up, too. Lately I’ve been thinking about the things my friends and I used to do with various weeds when we were kids.

    • There was the weeds-into-pop-guns trick, pictured above (arrowhead weeds, I just learned they’re called).
    • Clover chains
    • Trying to make a grass blade whistle (okay, not weeds, but still counts)
    • Of course making a wish on dandelion heads

    Know any others?

    I’ve been so focused on my writing goals that I haven’t been doing a lot of crafts and (interesting) cooking, though I do have a few things l’d like to share in the coming weeks. Our last day of school is today, which means my schedule will be quite a bit different from here until the end of August.

    I’ll try to be here as much as I can, but you may find me more frequently on Twitter and Instagram, since those are easy for quick snippets. My Twitter handle is @emilysmithpearc and I’m on Instagram as Emily Smith Pearce.

    Good news! I reached the goals I set for myself with both my nonfiction and YA novel manuscripts. This is big. So much writing done this year, though it’s easy to wish I had gotten even more done.

    Currently reading: The Divorce Papers by Susan Rieger and The Great Green Heist by Varian Johnson (both purchased at Park Road Books). Currently watching: Game of Thrones and Orange is the New Black.

    9. New ‘Cuphead’ Trailer Released at E3

    Studio MDHR has delayed their Fleischer-esque videogame Cuphead until 2015, but they just released a new trailer for the gaming show E3 with new footage that is even more impressive (and more Fleischer-y) than the earlier preview.

    10. App of the Week: Two Dots

    Title: Two Dots
    Platform: iOS 6.1 or later
    Cost: Free (with in-app purchases)

    Just about a year ago I reviewed the addictive and fun game, Dots. Now there’s a sequel, Two Dots, and it’s just as addictive and just as fun. But, you don’t have to take my word for it.


    There’s a lot of strategy and critical thinking that has to go into successful playing of Two Dots. That’s what makes it so much fun. Teens, or you, playing the game have to figure out what moves are required in order to get to the objective presented by the game. If objectives aren’t reached lives are lost. If all five lives are lost game play halts for a number of minutes. Who wants to stop when ensconced in the fun? And, if you don’t want to stop then you have to figure out how to meet the objectives. It’s a vicious fun cycle.

    Check-out the screencast below to learn more and then try it out yourself and with the teens with whom you work. But, be prepared, all schedules should be clear so that you and the teens are free to play for quite awhile.

    For more app recommendations, visit the YALSA App of the Week Archive. If you have an app you’d like us to review, let us know!
