New collection of interactive storybook apps launched

Wanderful launched today a new collection of multilingual interactive storybook apps for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch based on classic titles originally published as Living Books by Brøderbund Software. The three new apps –Mercer Mayer’s “Little Monster at School,” Marc Brown’s “Arthur’s Teacher Trouble” and Aesop’s “The Tortoise and the Hare,” – are available beginning today on the App Store.

Every app features custom music, extended animation and hundreds of interactive hot spots and antics. Each app also includes the classic “Read to Me” mode that lets young readers watch and listen to the story play automatically.

A dynamic language function allows readers to switch languages on-the-fly from anywhere in the story. Launching with English, Spanish and French, future versions of the products will be available in Japanese, German, Italian, U.K. English and Brazilian Portuguese.

The first three Wanderful interactive storybooks can be found on the App Store at:
