If you enjoy literature, great art, and reading on your iPad, then The Alice App is right up your alley. I really like the tag line: The Alice App, Renaissance art meets the Alice world.
The Alice App is a beautifully done ebook of the classic story. This book is designed and illustrated by Emmanuel Paletz. I definitely recommend you head over to the official website for the app to learn about Emmanuel, the book, the art, and more. The app is designed for the iPad and comes with some simple instructions. You can adjust the volume and either read the book yourself or have the book read to you. I really enjoyed having the book read to me.
The book begins with a nice introduction to the story behind the story of Alice in Wonderland. Definitely worth the time; I learned quite a bit. The one thing I found though is that there is no way to pause the reading until he finishes the page. You will also notice a green bookmark in the center of the page. Here you can open up each chapter and quick choose a page to go to.
Overall the app is beautifully done and allows you to interact with the story. Many pages have pictures you can click on and watch what happens. This is not a boring book. This is a great book that parents can share with their kids. I really enjoyed exploring the book and playing with the interactive pictures.
So if you need some summer reading this year and want a different experience, give The Alice App a shot!
