in Books (E)

[prMac.com] New York, New York - One Hundred Robots Corporation today is pleased to announce the release of "Hildegard Sings", a children's book app about an opera-singing hippo for iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch. Previous titles from One Hundred Robots have been highlighted in the New York Times Gadgetwise, iPhone4kids, and the Literary Platform as among the best children's book apps.

"Hildegard Sings" is about Hildegard Rhineheffer, a lovable hippo, who dreams of being an opera star. Her big break comes when the lead in the opera falls ill, but on the eve of her debut she suddenly loses her voice and possibly her dream. Interactive features include the ability to feed Hildegard a feast, help her try on whimsical hats, pop bubbles in her bath, and raise the curtain on opening night. Only you can help Hildegard overcome her stage fright and become the diva she is destined to be.

Illustrated in watercolor with 28 interactive, surprise-packed pages, this is an unforgettable story of a singer on the brink of stardom. The extras include Hildegard's Famous Roles, hilarious spoofs of Madame Butterfly, Hansel and Gretel and other opera classics. There is also a matching game based on the illustrations.

"Hildegard Rhineheffer has what it takes to become a star. She also has stage fright. The show must go on, but will Hildegard? Inspired silliness." - Publishers Weekly

"One Hundred Robots was born out of our passion for the ways that devices such as the iPad can share incredible stories and give families more quality time together." - Tom Wharton, One Hundred Robots
