No. 11 Downing St. is an interactive novel for pre-teens and teenagers. It narrates the adventures of Ninja Nanny, a mischievous cow in search of her heritage, and her companion Sherrlock Sheltie. The story leads to animated sequences that introduce a host of unusual fiends and foes as Baron Von Moribund trails Ninja Nanny through San Francisco, London, and the Cotswolds. “No. 11 Downing St. uses sidebars to emphasize clues to the overall mystery of Ninja Nanny’s heritage, give local color to a scene, or develop more richly the emerging relationship between the two main characters. The text contains hot-words and phrases that link to the DictioPedia which explains words, ideas, and settings. No. 11 Downing St. is full of double entendres and puns, as you would expect from a company that calls itself Silicon Alley. Graphics often resemble turn-of-the-century clip art. Clicking on various objects causes items to move and entertain the user. For example, clicking on the bumper stop of a loading dock in chapter three reveals that it reads ‘The truck stops here – H. Truman, Postmaster.’ Looking up Truman in the DictioPedia indicates that he once went bankrupt and served heroically in World War I. One can see footage of the war and then see one of Truman’s most trying moments, firing General Douglas MacArthur during the Korean War. The user can also see MacArthur make his famous ‘I shall return’ speech.
