[prMac.com] Santa Barbara, California - iStoryTime and Fox Consumer Products, released the Ice Age Storybook App Collection for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch just in time to experience the paleolithic adventures of Manny, Sid, Diego and the beloved herd in the latest film installment of the successful animated franchise. The Collection will engage readers on a new level, immersing them in the world of Ice Age beyond the big screen. The Ice Age Storybook App Collection features character audio narration and vivid imagery from the motion picture franchise, offering parents and children an engaging reading experience through the series which includes:
Ice Age: Manny, a woolly mammoth, has been roped by Sid the Sloth into helping reunite an abandoned human baby named Roshan with his family. They are also joined by Diego, a saber-toothed tiger who befriends Sid and Manny.
Ice Age: The Meltdown: Manny, Sid and Diego embark on another incredible adventure. The Ice Age is coming to an end, and the animals are delighting in a melting paradise that is their new world. When disaster threatens, the sub-zero heroes embark on a mission across an ever-changing, increasingly dangerous landscape towards their salvation.
Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs: The sub-zero heroes return, this time beneath the ice, discovering a world of dinosaurs. This incredible and immense underground environment provides a sharp contrast to the wintry environments of the first Ice Age story settings, and dwarfs even the vastness of the above-ground Ice Age. It's a land of danger, massive creatures and mammal-eating plants.
Ice Age: Continental Drift: A continental cataclysm triggers the greatest adventure of all for Manny, Diego and Sid. In the wake of these upheavals, Sid reunites with his cantankerous Granny and the herd encounters a ragtag menagerie of seafaring pirates determined to stop them from returning home.
Features within each of the book apps include:
* Character audio from the motion picture series
* Real images from the movie offering an authentic experience
