Meet The Developer!

portraits headshotsWhat was the initial inspiration for  your app?

I met Julie Hedlund, the author, when I was presenting at an SCBWI conference (Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators). My topic was digital books, and Julie approached me with her manuscript for Troop, complete with a storyboard of suggested interactions and sounds. I was very impressed by her passion and professionalism, but also completely charmed by the app idea. I don’t think there are enough non-fiction interactive storybooks out there (that are cute). And so we did it.
What is your favorite aspect of your app?
Pamela Baron’s animated watercolors. Maybe it’s because I’m an illustrator myself, and I see ho hard she works behind the scenes—but honestly, to paint every animal separately, with moveable parts, and then scan them in and then digitally re-assemble them? It’s totally amazing. And the final layouts are so lovely.
Is there anything else you would like to share with our readers?
It’s not just one app! In May we will be releasing the sequel, “A Shiver of Sharks,” about ocean animals, so look out for that. Also, in Fall we will be releasing the book—as in, the printed, paper book. It will be available in wide release, and will feature animals from both apps, plus a few more to round out the selection. Fans of the songs should look out for those as downloadable treats for kids, too.
