What is the story about?
It’s the year 2050; the Earth has become a dreadful, unkind place full of angry, lonely people and animals wandering the streets with no homes. Raja, a very special warrior from another world, has been sent on a Warrior Mission… But his fate takes a sudden turn when he becomes compelled to help a lonely Earth boy. The only problem? Once Raja arrives on Earth, he discovers that he’s been transformed from a brave warrior into a domestic — and fearful — Earth cat!
How do I use the app?
When you readThe Restricted Adventures of Raja on a tablet device, two icons appear: a Warrior Practice icon and a Warrior Knowledge icon. The icons pop up when Raja is about to enter the portal to Earth to start his warrior mission. You can touch these icons and use the questions and information provided to help kids think critically about the characters’ emotions, behaviors and actions.
