The Bird Stories

Meet Cadence the uncoordinated starling and her friends in my new ebook app for the iPad:

You do have an iPad, right? If you don’t you’d better buy one, so you can download this app. Do it now! The story is written and illustrated  (and narrated, but you should turn the narration off to spare me the humiliation of having people listen to the annoying sound of my voice) by me , and programmed by Famloop.

It’s an interactive storybook for young readers, with some simple games and such built in. But you can buy it even if you don’t know anyone under five!

Here’s some screenshots from the first story in the app. ‘Starling’:

The app itself is free to download on iTunes, then £1.49 if you like me the preview enough to download the whole story. It’s the first in a series of three stories about birds that I’ll be working on, all of which will be available soon on that app! Here’s a little preview of the main character in the next book:

So watch this space for more updates! Famloop have more apps available along the same lines for children that you should also buy when you buy your iPad (which you’re going to go and do now, right?), here: Look out for ‘The Animals you Don’t Know’ by Sonya Hallett especially, because it’s pretty awesome.
