Piggles Goes to School - A new e-book app

When a book-maker gets a book in a box on the porch it's always a thrill to open it up and see it 'for real'... finally.  This same rule applies to e-book apps... only more so.

I had the wonderful opportunity to finally download my 1st copy of 'Piggles Goes to School' onto my iPod touch.

To savor the experience I quietly stole away to my favorite cafe to plug in my headphones and push the 'Read to Me' button on my iPod.  On the scale of the quiet joys of book-making this first reading rates up near the top. It's the first time ever that you get to be 'the reader'.  I was not disappointed. 

This new book is an actual book, whereas Mousey the Explorer was sort of an improvised idea on a theme.  'Piggles Goes to School' has an actual storyline, plot, resolution and all that. 

On his first day of school Piggles worries about everything. But Piggles learns to think for himself as he outsmarts dinosaurs, a witch, a goblin, a UFO, a dragon and a pirate. Filled with puzzles and interactive fun, Piggles loves school once gets there.

'Piggles Goes to School' is available from, an iTunes store.

  1. Big congrats, John! Somehow I missed your August post about Mousey. Anyway, Piggles looks fun! Hope you're going to make a trailer for it. In case readers aren't familiar with ITB, it's a free app on iTunes with several free book apps you can download plus book apps for sale at very reasonable prices.

  2. Thanks! Yes, the trailer is underway. It's easy to make trailers of ebook apps since they already come with music, action and voice-overs. :0)
