To help bring awareness to the Chicago Anti-Cruelty Society's special event October 1 "It's Raining Cats And Dogs", local author Lise Dominique is lowering the price of her iPad app "Harvey The Hungry Dog" from $2.99 to 99 cents for one day only. The "Harvey" app (and associated book) explore the love between an owner and their dog in a format kids find compelling.

...the Harvey book translated wonderfully to iPad.

To help raise awareness of the Chicago Anti-Cruelty Society's special event "It's Raining Cats and Dogs", local children's author and radio personality Lise Dominique is having a special one day sale of her iPad eBook "Harvey The Hungry Dog" in the Apple App Store.

Harvey the Hungry Dog, the first of the children’s book series, tells the whimsical tale of Lisë's own yellow Labrador retriever and his charming, highly spirited romp through the first year of his life. It explores the special bond owners develop with their pets in a format that quickly immerses both pre-schoolers and kids of all ages.

The e-book features the same colorful illustrations by artist Chrissie Vales found in the printed paper version of the book and includes an integrated audio track of the book read by the author. The app was developed by Chicago Software Ventures specifically for the iPad. CSV founder Walter Szulczewski said, "The iPad is a magical platform and the Harvey book translated wonderfully from paper to iPad. By integrating the audio directly with the content and using a simple intuitive interface even pre-schoolers can immediately use the product. Harvey barks when it’s time to turn the page and this one-on-one interaction really draws the children in."

Customers purchasing Harvey the Hungry Dog through their iPads receive an exclusive bonus: a special page that links directly to Harvey’s own website and an exclusive email address so kids and parents can write to Harvey.

Harvey the Hungry Dog is normally available for $2.99 through the App Store on iPad and through iTunes in the iTunes Store, but will be discounted to 99 cents for this one day only.

"I'm a huge fan of the Anti-Cruelty Society and the work they do here in Chicago bringing people together with their future pets" said Lise Dominique " and I applaud them on the tenth anniversary of this wonderful event."
