Riassunto: Big Anthony's Mixed-Up Magic CD is an interactive book with two very clear educational objectives: (1) to develop a young reader's awareness of the key elements of a story (plot, characters, and setting); and (2) to develop awareness of matching and combination patterns. It also contains a nice introduction to magic, with six tricks demonstrated and explained with short video clips. The story is set in a magical town in southern Italy, Calabria. The lead character, Big Anthony, is the bumbling but well-meaning assistant to Strega Nona, a woman who has folk cures for all the townspeople's ailments. When a competing Strega appears in town, the scene is set for a series of adventures for Big Anthony. Big Anthony goes beyond the usual format of this class of software, by truly focusing on its educational objectives. Where most titles include just a single sentence with each screen, Big Anthony offers a 'read-to-me' option that presents the full text of the story. Words in this text can be individually clicked on for pronunciation, but not definitions. But where Big Anthony shines the most, is in its development of the story characters, plot, and setting. The user is given multiple opportunities to see the impact of the new Strega, and what happens when Big Anthony tries to help her. Users are also given the chance to explore Calabria. The second area that Big Anthony devotes significant resources to, is exposure to the world of combinations and matching. Beginning with the fairly common 'match paired objects behind hidden doors' type of game, Big Anthony includes activities which require the user to work through combinations of levers to fix a headache-curing machine, transfer mixed up voices, and produce the correct color of wart-removing cream!
