Rounds: Franklin Frog has an extra spring in its step!

As followers of the @NosyCrow Twitter account may have noticed, Kate is currently in New York, attending the Digital Book World conference (where she spoke on a panel yesterday on the subject of “The Future of Children’s Publishing in the Digital Age”).

The conference will conclude with the announcement of the winners of the Publishing Innovation Awards – and Rounds: Franklin Frog is a finalist! Last year, our Cinderella app won in the same category – Best Juvenile App – and we’re thrilled that Franklin Frog is flying the Nosy Crow flag at the Conference. Here’s the app’s trailer:

And there’s more good news for the second app in the Rounds series, Rounds: Parker Penguin – the app has been recognised with a coveted Editor’s Choice Award from Children’s Technology Review! Parker Penguin has also been named by Mashable as one of the Top 5 Apps for Kids You Don’t Want to Miss. Mashable write “This innovative app stretches the definition of e-book, with a dash of Nosy Crow irreverence.”
