Random House Children’s Books has released The Poky Little Puppy app, the first of a planned series of Little Golden Books apps, is now available at the iTunes store in the US.
The app is formatted for the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch and retails for US$4.99, but is being introduced with a US$3.99 price tag.
The Poky Little Puppy is a bestselling picture book of all time and is one of the 12 original Little Golden Books published in 1942. Written by Janette Sebring Lowrey and illustrated by Gustaf Tenggren, the book tells the story of a little puppy who has to go to bed without desert.
To develop the app, Random House Children’s Books collaborated with digital media agency Smashing Ideas, which Bertelsmann AG acquired in May 2011 for its Random House division.
