Grids Interactive, an independent digital publisher of original interactive storybook apps, today announced the launch of Surf Angel, their second digital book for the iPad. Surf Angel, adapted from the very successful print book, is an animated storybook app available for purchase on iTunes with beautiful moving images on every page.

In this endearing story, Surf Angel arrives to tuck her ocean friends into their beds for a safe night’s sleep. Using the same striking artwork as the original print version, this bedtime storybook app incorporates soothing ocean sounds into its soundtrack and allows the reader to record their own voice for playback as the book narration.

Sam Berman, Co-founder of Grids Interactive, differentiated this app from interactive e-books. “Surf Angel is a bedtime story and its purpose is not to excite the reader with multiple levels of interactivity. We removed the touch point interactivity from this app but left in high-level animations to still engage the reader. The artwork is exquisite and children will enjoy the variety of sea creatures they encounter in this story.”

Grids Interactive is changing the way young readers engage with stories by blending original content and animation with emerging technologies in tablet computing. Grids Interactive seeks to inspire children with a passion for reading and learning. The company has partnered with The Make-A-Wish Foundation, which will receive a portion of the profits from the app.

Surf Angel is available for purchase in the iTunes app store for $3.99.
