Wanderful Launches New Collection of Interactive Storybook Apps

Wanderful has launched 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 now available on the App Store.

Wanderful apps are highly intuitive and encourage children to explore each story and all its content. Each app features custom music, extended animation, and hundreds of interactive hot spots and antics, providing a deeper experience and more interactivity on one page than other story apps offer in total. While fully interactive at the page level, each app also includes the classic “Read to Me” mode that lets young readers watch and listen to the story play automatically.

Wanderful has created a language function that allows readers to switch languages on-the-fly from anywhere in the story. Launching in 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 are now available for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch at the App Store: “Arthur’s Teacher Trouble,” “Little Monster at School,” and “The Tortoise and the Hare.”
