We created a chat based game for kids aged 8-10 last year and we were amazed how much stuff we got them to read just by putting it into bubbles. Normally kids won't read anything that's part of a ‘game’.

School librarian here - don't get me wrong, I think the idea is awesome, but I think some of the dialogue is a bit too high and the humor would be above some children's heads. For example, I chose age 7 and there was a lot of sarcasm. As an adult, I found it quite entertaining, I just think a lot of it would be missed unless an adult was reading it aloud with a sarcastic voice.
