Lisa Hunt's new iPad book out now!

We are pleased to say that a fab new iPad book called 'The Hippo, The Rhino, The Elephant and Me' is available now on iTunes! Illustrated by the wonderful Lisa Hunt, and published by Ink Robin, it's a real treat.
Here's what Ink Robin say:

We're excited to announce that our newest book, The Hippo, the Rhino, the Elephant and Me is brand new in the iTunes store today, just in time for Christmas!

This whimsical, playful rhyme recounts the adventures of a little girl and her three mischievous best friends (you can probably guess who they are). It's an interactive, fun-filled kids' book in which you can play musical instruments, enjoy some mess-free colouring and generally enjoy the antics of these four cheeky characters.

Beautifully illustrated by British artist Lisa Hunt, and narrated by the wonderful Julie Hill (the voice of Will & Kate), this is a lovely read for parents and kids alike, and is perfect as a bedtime story.
