Do you love storytelling? Do you know what Inanimate Alice is? Do you like creativity and using technology to create stories as well as tell them? Do you want children and teens to become story tellers as well as story listeners? If you answered yes to any of these questions, run, don’t walk your way into this new book. Transmedia storytelling means the creation of stories in a wide variety of formats and genres from writing them on paper to inventing and creating them in many different kinds of virtual and real worlds using various forms of technology. Hovous has degrees both in library and information science and instructional design and has discovered and helps us all push storytelling into an entirely new world that will not just entertain kids and teens, but add a wide skill set to their literacy bucket. So many librarians are wondering what to do with the tug of traditional practices in story times in both school and public libraries and this new generation who grow up in the world of social media, games, and film. Trust me on this one: Hovius pushes the envelop and this envelop is worth opening. Now.
