Chicago, IL (PRWEB) September 15, 2010
Less than a year after its first printing, The Adventures of Harvey the Wonder Dog has gone electronic. Harvey the Hungry Dog, the first of the children’s book series, is now available for the iPad.
The whimsical tale of the cape-wearing, Mini Cooper-driving, rawhide-devouring, yellow Labrador retriever and his charming, highly spirited romp through the first year of his life translates beautifully to the iPad. Through Harvey’s somewhat misguided adventures, author Lisë Dominique shares valuable lessons for children ages 3 to 8 years old in a humorous and engaging way.
The Harvey story features colorful illustrations by artist Chrissie Vales. It comes with an audio track of the book read by the author that helps children learn to read. Harvey barks when it’s time to turn the page.
Readers can easily scroll back and forth through the book to read and listen at their own pace. There also is a mute button if no sound is desired.
Customers purchasing Harvey the Hungry Dog through their iPads receive an exclusive bonus: a special page that links the audio directly to Harvey’s own website, Twitter feed and Facebook page. iPad customers also can access an exclusive email address so kids and parents can write to Harvey.
Harvey the Hungry Dog is available for $2.99 through the App Store on iPad and through iTunes in the iTunes Store.
In just the first few days of availability, the e-book sold copies throughout the world, including to Harvey fans in Mexico, Canada, Australia and Turkey.
Harvey’s website is http://www.theadventuresofharveythewonderdog.com.
