The Jungle Book for iPad

I'm thrilled to announce the release of The Jungle Book for iPad.
This has been in the works for a little more than a year and has just hit the app store in time for Christmas.
It was a collaboration with the makers of Alice for the iPad and the team at Smashing Ideas and is published by Random House Digital, inc.

There are lots of illustrations in the book, but here are a few for you to see. They are all interactive with sound-scapes and sound effects and there is a top notch voice recording of the abridged storybook version. The pages with blank areas are where story text appears in the book. It pretty fantastic, but I may be biased. You can also see concept art for it here.

I bought the app. Can't wait to show my kids tonight.

You probably don't have control over this, but I think its high price is going to limit it's success. (compare to the recent highly successful "The Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore" priced at $4.99). I bought the app because I have been following your work and am a fan who wants to support, but the high price tag might be too high a barrier to entry for others.

@Joseph

I agree, I was actually surprised to see it was 8.99 but like you said I had no control over it. It was probably a decision Random House made with whatever reasoning.

4.99 seems more reasonable, but I know very little about the app business

I appreciate the support though!
