[prMac.com] Vancouver, Canada - Loud Crow Interactive Inc. today is pleased to announce the release of PopOut! The Night Before Christmas, the second installment in the PopOut!(TM) series of interactive digital books. The book is available for download worldwide on the iTunes app store for the iPad, iPhone, and iPad touch devices.
PopOut! The Night Before Christmas is the sequel title to the widely popular PopOut! The Tale of Peter Rabbit which was selected as iPad and iPhone "App of the Week" and featured by several media sites including Mashable, TUAW, and FOX News. Based on the 1902 book by William Wallace Denslow, PopOut! The Night Before Christmas combines original text and illustrations with rich interactivity to create an authentic yet modern reading experience.
"Denslow's version of Night Before Christmas turned out to be a great choice for our holiday title," says Calvin Wang, Founder and President. "The artistic style and vibrant illustrations gave us a lot of creative freedom with which we could implement our diverse set of PopOut! elements."
The company also announces that 10 percent of all proceeds from PopOut! The Night Before Christmas, until Christmas, will be donated to local children's charities.
PopOut! The Night Before Christmas features uniquely interactive elements such as pull-tabs, spin-wheels, spring-mounted elements, and objects that literally pop out of the page. Some objects such as candies and leaves turn into the real thing when touched. Immersive sound effects and a classical piano soundtrack of "O Christmas Tree" accompany the professional voice narration. The book features both "read to me" and "read it myself" modes and provides educational value by allowing any word and page number in the book to be read aloud simply by tapping it.
