Christmas is coming to the iBook Store!

Just in time for Christmas, we’ve launched some beautiful, enhanced iBook editions of some of our most festive and wintery picture books. You can now find Pip and Posy: The Snowy Day, by Axel Scheffler, and Just Right for Christmas, by Birdie Black and Rosalind Beardshaw, on the iBook Store, complete with audio and text highlighting – and for only £2.99 ($4.99) each.

In The Snowy Day, Pip and Posy can’t wait to go out and play in the snow. They have all sorts of fun, until they decide to build a snowman… when things start to go a bit pear-shaped. Pip wants a snowRABBIT, but Posy wants a snowMOUSE. An argument erupts and very soon both friends are cold and wet – and very sad. Oh dear! Happily the friends resolve their differences over a cosy craft sessions indoors. Here’s the book on the iBook Store:

And in Just Right for Christmas, one snowy Christmas Eve the king buys some soft red cloth to make a cloak for the princess. Little does he know that the left-over cloth will be used to make presents for many more of the kingdom’s inhabitants, right down to the last teeny bit of cloth, which is just right to make a scarf that will protect the smallest mouse from the winter chill. Rhythmical writing and heartwarming, charming illustrations from renowned Rosalind Beardshaw make this lovely story with a perfect Christmas message a joy to give to your loved ones.

And that’s not all! We have some more seasonal iBooks on the way – and in the meantime, Merry Christmas from Nosy Crow!
