I hope that this post finds you well.
What are some of the best stories for introducing parser-based IF to relatively young readers, those who are ten years old, or thereabouts? Of course, there are many good choices that have been around for a long time, such as “Six,” “Snack Time” and "Lost Pig.’
However, I’ve found two relatively recent titles that seem to work particularly well. These are stories by the same author, Mathbrush, and both were written as prizes for IF Comp contestants. The stories are “The Origin of Madame Time” and “The Magpie Takes the Train.”
Have others tried these stories with beginners? How well did they work?
Has anyone had success with other relatively recent stories for the very young?
