Fabulous!, 29 Dec 2009
This is a fabulous product, the best of its kind I've seen. The cards cover a wide range of possible story subjects. While the subject of each card is clear and beautifully illustrated, the backgrounds are dense (never confusing) with secondary images that heighten the over all effect. You could create a compelling story just using one card alone. With several, the possibilities are near-infinite. One wonderful and brilliant design element is that each card has a secret image that relates it to another card in the deck, allowing the cards to be used in a game of discovering their hidden connections. The manual is clear and very well written, quite supportive and inviting in its own way. I can see this deck being used in any number of kinds of classes from art to creative writing, but one doesn't have to be an educator to enjoy and use these cards. They are a rich resource for any creative person or just for family fun while on a trip or on a bad weather day when outdoor play is not possible.
