[prMac.com] Elsternwick, Australia - Jelly Biscuits today is proud to announce the availability of their new children's interactive book "Slice of Bread goes to the Beach" for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Slice of Bread loves nothing more than hunting for treasure but his day on the beach does not turn out at all the way he'd planned. In a series of unfortunate mishaps, his day goes from bad to worse until he finds a treasure of a very different kind.
Slice of Bread goes to the Beach has been specially written, illustrated and voiced for the iPad and iPhone/iPod touch by Glenn Melenhorst, and combined with Jellybiscuits' technical excellence has once again created an interactive experience to delight both young and old.
From the author: "After the success of Food Fight, I thought it only natural to follow a sausage story with a bread story:) Actually, Slice of bread was a story I have wanted to tell for a number of years so I'm glad I finally found the time to create the illustrations. I was particularly focused on building interactive elements that were part of the story."
Jellybiscuits strives to bring a new, contemporary voice to the iPad, iPod and iPhone by publishing new works that speak to a new generation of children. The interactivity in Slice of Bread goes to the Beach is designed to enhance to story without getting in the way: to extend the exploration and entertainment of the story without obscuring the charm of the story itself:
* Studio recorded voice reading by the author of the book, Glenn Melenhorst, with word-by-word highlighting
