“The Magnificent Travelling Palace," an animated book app for children, is an original, 26 page adventure story told through the eyes of four children from the splendid City of Lakes, Udaipur, India.

The captivating colorful 3-D illustration and animations created by the 2012 TASI Viewers Choice award winner, Rakesh Nanda, together with the unique music, authentic sounds, and rich interactivity, create an exciting Indian atmosphere through which the adventure comes to life.

In addition, the young readers can enjoy preparing a traditional sweet Indian dessert presented (with a recipe) in the story.

” I researched a great deal before creating each illustration, the result are the small details specific to India in each image which bring a sense of authenticity to each image,” said Rakesh Nanda.

“As parents and educators we often look for the best app to help educate our kids but tend to neglect an important educational message like cultural openness and tolerance. When I started PlanTree Family I made it my goal to change that. 'The Magnificent Travelling Palace' is the first statement made by us but certainly not the last," said Shoham Drori, the Founder of PlaneTree Family Productions.
