Atreyu's Quest

This was my project for the 2013 ISTD brief Books Still? The brief asked you to look at how people read in the 21st Century and to explore the printed book versus the online book. I decided to focus on how children read in the 21st Century and through my research I discovered that children prefer reading online because at the end of a chapter there might be an interactive game or a website where you could tag your favourite part of the books for your friends to see. I wanted to bring these interactive and fun elements back into the printed book by making a book into a board game. I chose the Neverending Story as my case story because it talks about how children are losing interest in reading and the world of fantasy and I felt this was appropriate for the project.
