[prMac.com] Wiesbaden, Germany - Australia is far away from home, which is probably one of the main reasons why it holds such fascination for children. All the unfamiliar animals, which live on the continent, will make it exciting for the children to get to know Australia.
Explorers age 3 and up are going to have a lot of fun with the new iPad app "Puschel 2 - Adventure in the Eucalyptus Forest". The interactive multimedia children's book tells the story of animals from "Down Under". It is the brainchild of children's book author Marietta Wahl and was illustrated with beautiful watercolor paintings by Andreas Koridass.
Puschel, Cassandra and Tommy are on the move in Australia. The discovery app for little world travelers teaches the children about Australian animals. They are going to find out what koalas really like to eat, for example. Besides that, "Puschel 2" is also a very exciting adventure story. Authentic jungle noises immediately create the appropriate atmosphere.
The koala bear Puschel, and his friends, are on they way across the Australian outback. He is joined by the albino kangaroo Tommy and the snake Cassandra. During their journey through the eucalyptus forest the three friends encounter lots of animals - and come to realize that there are quite a few rivalries between the species, which are not exactly easy to overcome.
The children may read the story themselves in English, German or Spanish. Another option is to have it read to them page by page. The book features twelve chapters with interactive illustrations (animations and sounds), that offer plenty of interesting discoveries. If the children need to take a break from all the exciting discovery work, the app will keep track of how fare they have come in the book. They may continue exactly where they left off, before they put down the iPad. A Dingo tree climbing game and a quiz about Australia and koalas completes the app.
