Value for Mobile Creativity™
[MobilePRwire] – The award-winning iPad children’s book app “The Wrong Side of the Bed in 3D!” is now available on the Nook and Amazon App Stores. This topsy-turvy tale has been selected as one of the Best Children’s Storybook Apps by Kirkus Reviews, Digital Storytime, iPhoneLife and Babble.com. It is a recipient of a Kirkus Star for books of remarkable merit by the impartial editors at Kirkus Reviews, and has been featured in the NY Times, CNET & The Huffington Post.
The book poses the question: What happens when you wake up on the wrong side of the bed? In little Mott Turner’s case, he sees the world in a different light, from the ceiling! Imagine how kids can identify with little Mott, who wakes confused and irritable one morning, only to find himself in one upside-down misadventure after another, until finally he is right side up and once again, level-headed. The moral of the story: It helps to be in the right frame of mind before you get out of bed!
- The book can be read in either standard 2D or stereoscopic 3D (with red/cyan 3D glasses).
- Animated touch spots: tickle Mott on each page to see and hear his reactions.
- Audio options for “read to me” (read by the author) or “read myself” when parents and children would like to read at their own pace.
- Animation, music and sound effects provide a rich multimedia reading experience.
- Includes an Auto-play feature for automatic page turning.
- Written for ages 4 and up.
- Red/cyan 3D glasses can be easily purchased via a link in the app, or at most local comic book stores. Red/cyan 3D glasses are needed for viewing the stereoscopic 3D version of the book.
Kirkus Reviews states, “For readers still unconvinced that the features of the iPad can translate printed children’s books into full-blown multimedia experiences, this one will change your point of view.”
Author/illustrator Wallace E. Keller has illustrated children’s books for Scholastic, Harcourt, Rizzoli International, McGraw-Hill and Houghton Mifflin. A graduate of Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California, his illustrations have appeared in The New York Times Book Review, Business Week, Ms. and Psychology Today.
