There’s a special treat for readers using an iPad, iPhone or iPod touch that has a front-facing camera. Their faces will appear inside the “magic mirror” in some scenes of the story!
London, England (PRWEB) September 13, 2011
Independent publisher Nosy Crow is pleased to announce that its Cinderella App for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch is now available on the App Store. Cinderella, an interactive picture book app for children, is the second in Nosy Crow’s series of 3-D fairy tale apps, recommended for children ages 3 and up.
The Cinderella App is a fresh take on the favorite fairytale. It features beautiful and witty illustrations by Ed Bryan; sophisticated animation; an original score by BAFTA award-winner Robin Beanland; and lively narration by child actors.
But it’s the rich interactivity that brings this book app to life. In Cinderella, readers make the magic happen. By tapping, swiping, dragging and dropping, they can help Cinderella clean the kitchen and find things the fairy godmother can transform into the magical carriage. They can even choose Cinderella’s dress for the ball. These activities give children an active role in advancing the story.
There’s also a special treat for readers using an iPad, iPhone or iPod touch that has a front-facing camera. Their faces will appear inside the “magic mirror” in some scenes of the story!
“With Cinderella, we’ve taken advantage of the features of the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch to deepen children’s engagement with the plot and characters,” says Kate Wilson, Managing Director of Nosy Crow. “Our touch-triggered activities are a seamless part of the narrative. This makes the reading experience exciting and different every time.”
