It’s the last day of our Penguin Awareness Day app sale

Today’s your final chance to get Rounds: Parker Penguin, our new life science storybook app, for less than half price in our Penguin Awareness Day promotion! The app will be just $1.99 (£1.49) until the end of today (if you’re in the US, check which timezone the App Store is set to), before rising to its full (and very reasonable!) price of $4.99 (£2.99).

Here’s some of the coverage Parker Penguin has received so far:

“Children with an interest in the world around them (and its wildlife) will love this delightful book-app from Nosy Crow. It follows a penguin called Parker through its life from birth to parenthood, with a mixture of storytelling and interactivity.”
The Guardian

“Presented with rich artwork full of round shapes and accompanied by music that varies when you touch the penguin, this is an intriguing way for kids to learn science.”

USA Today

“The graphics are first rate and I defy anyone not to feel a warm, seasonal glow as the chick hatches and stumbles about in the snow. Sniff.”
The Literary Platform

“This innovative app stretches the definition of e-book, with a dash of Nosy Crow irreverence.”
Mashable

“The latest pre-school learning app from Nosy Crow, this adventure follows Parker Penguin as he slides across the snow, dives into the water, finds a mate, guards an egg and raises a chick. When you get to the end, the circle of life continues with Parker’s next of kin.”
NBC News
