[prMac.com] San Francisco, California - Wanderful Interactive Storybooks, the award-winning developer of apps for today's digital kids, has released its latest interactive story, Ruff's Bone 1.0, Free for a limited time. Originally published by Living Books, Ruff's Bone has been updated with new interactive features and is the latest storybook app released by Wanderful.
Ruff's Bone is an offbeat adventure of Ruff's far-ranging hunt to find his bone. This determined dog's search leads into a cave, high up in the clouds, back to the bottom of the ocean and even up a ladder to another planet. It's an out-of-this-world reading experience with surprises on every page.
The storybook comes with both English and Spanish, and users can toggle between languages dynamically from any page, a powerful feature beyond anything found in other storybooks. Like other Wanderful storybooks, the Read To Me mode allows children to enjoy the story experience in a more traditional format.
"We are thrilled to launch Ruff's Bone for iOS devices," said Wanderful Founder and CEO Mickey W. Mantle, "Users of our other apps have been looking forward to this story."
Wanderful apps are highly intuitive and encourage children to explore each storybook page for all its hidden content. With pages of animation and hundreds of interactive antics, the apps provide a richer interactive experience on one page than many other story apps offer in a whole book.

Originally introduced in 1992 by Brderbund Software, Living Books were the industry's first highly interactive storybooks and embraced by educators, praised by parents and cherished by children. Twenty years later Mickey W. Mantle, the former Broderbund CTO who oversaw the technology development for the original interactive storybooks founded Wanderful and assembled key members of the original team, including Living Books creator Mark Schlichting, to re-invent the wildly popular interactive storybooks. The team has built an entirely new multi-platform engine to drive the story experience on the latest tablets, phones and computers, resulting in interactive storybook apps designed for today's generation of digital kids. Wanderful apps have already won Parents' Choice and Children's Technology Review Awards. Visit the Wanderful Storybooks website for more information or search "Wanderful storybooks" on the App Store.
