Close, but no cigar by Edward_Buckner
This book seems promising, as it features a lot of interactivity, but its plot is its weakness. The book strains to find reasons to feature "buttons," and the interactive elements are often at odds with the illustrations, leading to a disjointed look. Many of my students were frustrated with the fact that they must solve a cryptic "puzzle" on each page in order to progress in the story, and many quit, finding the reward of "more story" not worth the effort.
