Nosy Crow Launches WorldofPipandPosy.com based on Axel Scheffler’s New Picture Book Series for Toddlers
Interactive Website Features Games, Videos and Print Activities
London, October 28: Nosy Crow brings the world of lovable pre-school friends Pip and Posy online with a new website for children and their parents. The www.WorldofPipandPosy.com is based on the Pip and Posy picture book series by best-selling and award-winning illustrator, Axel Scheffler.
Pip and Posy are best friends and they have a lot of fun together, but sometimes, like all toddlers, they get cross and sad. The series of books explore the dramas of pre-school life, and show how friendship, sharing, understanding and sometimes a cuddle can make things better. Of course, every story ends happily, and children and parents will recognise their own emotional roller-coasters in these stories.
At www.WorldofPipandPosy.com children and parents can extend the book experience online. They can watch videos, do jigsaw puzzles, print colouring pages and play games like pair-matching and spot the difference challenges. They can also find information about where to see Scheffler and the characters Pip and Posy at events and festivals in the UK. Audio prompts and clickable images enable young children to navigate the website along with their parents
Earlier this month, Nosy Crow released Pip and Posy: The Scary Monster, the third book in the series. It follows launch titles Pip and Posy: The Little Puddle and Pip and Posy: The Super Scooter which came out in April this year. Two more books in the series are planned for 2012.
Deb Gaffin, Digital Product and Marketing Director of Nosy Crow, says:
“We’re generally wary about establishing mini-sites, but Axel Scheffler’s characters of Pip and Posy lend themselves particularly well to this kind of website which has a lot of play value. We hope young readers have fun with Pip and Posy online, and we look forward to developing the site further as part of our plan to increase awareness of the characters and their world.”
