[prMac.com] Los Angeles, California - Kids' app development company Corky Portwine is pleased to announce the release of The Owl And The Pussycat 1.0, an interactive storybook app for young children. The app is a new illustrated version of Edward Lear's beloved Victorian-era poem. Featuring animated drawings, original music and full voice-over narration, The Owl And The Pussycat is a wonderful way to teach children the joys of poetry. It is available now for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Android, Kindle Fire and NOOK.
The Owl And The Pussycat makes it easy for young children to interact with the story by using glowing circles to highlight touchable elements. When touched, the hand-drawn illustrations animate and play distinctive musical sounds. In addition to the poem, The Owl And The Pussycat contains a For Parents page which offers suggested creative thinking questions and fun activities for children. The app also features a page of biographical information on Edward Lear.
"I'm so excited to bring a new interpretation of this poem to children," says Corky Portwine founder Sam Tannen. "Edward Lear has been my favorite poet since childhood. I'm sure he would be happy that his work continues to be enjoyed by readers!"
