Featuring expressive, museum quality watercolor paintings, interactive animation, professional narration, record your own narration, three built-in games, and four different languages for text and narration, the ebook was designed to be the most beautiful of all the Cinderella stories for iPad. Read in landscape orientation, each self-illuminated page contains so much detail that readers will find additional layers of graphical and emotional content with every reading.
Each page is part of an open book, and pages have small margins top and bottom to emphasize the depth of the book format. Great care has been taken in creating and reproducing these expressive paintings, whose depth heightens the feelings aroused by this classic story. There is a sense of dramatic reality that cannot be duplicated with computer graphics, gradients, and shadows. The painting style is highly realistic for a children's book, though facial expressions and points of view are exaggerated.
The quality of the voiceover is at the same high standard as the graphics. The male narrator reads the text without condescension or affectation. He reads at a slow pace, but the style is ideal for the narrator - believable, effective, and entertaining. As he reads, each word of text turns red for a moment. As children become increasingly familiar with the text, they may enjoy hearing it in another language. The ebook also allows the child or adult to record and save their own narration. The iPad book includes 18 different original compositions that serve as background music.
"Cinderella" is one of those rare storybooks that will be enjoyed equally by parent and child.
