[prMac.com] Deerfield Beach, Florida - Yasmin Studios today is pleased to introduce Magic Goldfish - Children's Interactive Storybook HD 1.0 for iPad, their latest interactive eBook available on the App Store. This interactive version features expressive, life-like graphics, professional narration, optional symphonic musical accompaniment, characters that can be moved and respond to touch, advanced lighting and animation effects, and forward and backward page turns. Accompanied by an adult, other children, or alone, the young reader's attention will be captured by both the story and its immersive, interactive presentation.
The eBook takes full advantage of the outstanding iPad display, and colors are true and vibrant. The volume level achievable through the built-in speaker is sufficient, and headphones or earbuds are not required. Particularly effective is the music, a small ensemble of strings and woodwinds, which is beautifully performed and edited, and helps create a fairy tale atmosphere with contrasting elements of serious classical instrumentation and whimsical musical themes. During or after the narration the reader may move the on-screen characters as if they were puppets acting out the story. Every character makes a vocal sound, heard when they are touched or moved.
