Santa Barbara, CA (PRWEB) January 23, 2012
zuuka, publishers of the iTalk and iStoryTime interactive storytelling apps and ebooks, today announced that The Smurfs Movie Storybook has been in the No. 1 spot for NOOK Kids Read to Me for the past month. Its Puss In Boots Movie Storybook title is sitting at No. 2 as well. Additionally, the company released How To Train Your Dragon for Barnes and Noble NOOK Color, NOOK Tablet and NOOK Kids for iPad. Available as a NOOK Kids Read to Me download with narration, How To Train Your Dragon is set in the mythical world of burly Vikings and wild dragons and is based on the Oscar nominated film. “How To Train Your Dragon is one of our most popular children’s books and rightly so as it’s a fun and entertaining book full of Vikings and dragons, two of kids‘ favorite characters,” said Graham Farrar, founder of zuuka. “One of the greatest aspects of developing it as a NOOK Kids Read to Me book is that parents can download it on their NOOK devices as well as sync with their NOOK Kids for iPad app.” The action comedy tells the story of Hiccup, a Viking teenager who doesn’t exactly fit in with his tribe’s longstanding tradition of heroic dragon slayers. Hiccup’s world is turned upside down when he encounters a dragon that challenges him and his fellow Vikings to see the world from an entirely different point of view.
Pricing and Availability:
How To Train Your Dragon is $2.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available through the Nook App Store, Apple App Store and Amazon App Store in the Books category.
