Two more Dr. Seuss eBook titles have hit the App Store over recent days – Yertle the Turtle and The Big Brag. I’m not familiar with either of these, but the descriptions for them look as enticing as ever. Here’s a slice on Yertle the Turtle:
Yertle the Turtle, the king of the pond, is unsatisfied with the small stone that serves as his throne. He commands the other turtles to stack themselves beneath him so that he can see further and expand his kingdom. As the stack of turtles get’s higher and higher, poor Mack, the turtle at the very bottom of the pile, is in great pain. Mack asks Yertle for a brief rest, but Yertle just tells him to be quiet. Finally fed up with Yertle’s abuse, the plain little turtle named Mack does something to upset the balance of power and free all the turtles.
‘Oh, the Places You’ll Go‘ is the latest Dr. Seuss title to be brought to the iPad (and iPhone) by Oceanhouse Media. Here’s part of the synopsis of this tale from its App Store page:
Full of good wishes and sage advice, this tale chronicles a cheerful little guy in a yellow jumpsuit as he makes his way in the world. He travels through a wide variety of colorful Seussian landscapes, cities, and sticky situations – some exhilarating, some depressing, some a little frightening.
The Lorax is the latest Dr. Seuss eBook title to come to the iPhone and the iPad. It has been released, along with two other Dr. Seuss titles from Oceanhouse Media, to coincide with Earth Day next week. It’s perfectly suited for the occasion, as the story has a strong eco message and theme.
My daughter and I got a chance to read The Lorax on the iPad last night. Both of us are big Dr. Seuss fans (who isn’t?). We’ve enjoyed the previous Dr. Seuss eBook titles on the iPhone from Oceanhouse; so we were looking forward to seeing this one. Hit the jump for some quick thoughts on The Lorax on the iPad and a few more screencaps ….
How good would Dr. Seuss books look on the iPad? If you said damn good, you’re right. And it’s not would, it’s will – as Oceanhouse Media plans to bring all of Dr. Seuss to the iPad. Yay!
Like so many people, I’ve been a huge fan of Dr. Seuss since childhood. As a parent of an almost seven year old, I’ve got the perfect excuse to continue enjoying his wonderful works as my daughter discovers them.
My daughter and I are also big fans of the Dr. Seuss books and apps that have come to the iPhone. So I was extremely happy to get a chance this week to talk to Michel Kripalani, President of Oceanhouse Media – who have the rights to bring all of the works of Dr. Seuss to the iPhone and iPad platform. Hit the jump for some details on when we can expect to see Dr. Seuss hit the iPad and another lovely screencap …
