Alicewinks iBook Combines Fantasy and Imagery in a Multimedia Format
We are avid readers in this family. Everyone in my house reads and we read all types of books.
Alice in Wonderland is one of my daughters most favorite books. She loves all of the characters. In fact, one of the highlights of her young life was the day that she was chosen out of the audience on our Disney Cruise to be part of the Alice in Wonderland Tea Party. She got to be the rabbit and be on the stage the entire time. Here is a picture of her with her siblings:
We were so excited to get the Alicewinks multimedia iBook to read/see together as a family. The book touts itself as “19th century fantasy, 20th century imagery, and 21st century technology” and that could not be more true.
Alicewinks is a multimedia iBook that brings the timeless illustrations of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland to life for digital audiences. Alicewinks pairs a rich narration of Lewis Carroll’s unabridged text with 193 original illustrations by twelve early 20th century artists, all brought together for tablets in animated, portrait-oriented video. In May of 2013, Alicewinks was awarded the prestigious Kirkus Star, reserved for books of “exceptional merit.”
This multimedia treatment of the original Alice's Adventures holds a feature length animated, portrait oriented video based on the works of 12 early 20th century artists. This “audio/video book” includes the complete text and 193 full color illustrations. Hyperlinks abound from the full page illustrations to the text and allow you to view all the illustrations by each artist in story order. The video is divided into 12 chapters of about 15 minutes each, perfect for sharing with young and old alike.
WHAT WE LOVED ABOUT ALICEWINKS
Wow! I cannot say enough good things about this iBook. From the moment we started reading and watching until the end, my daughter was enthralled. She laughed. She giggled. She repeated things back and even read portions herself. She loved the pictures and named all of the characters as she saw them. She jumped up & down and clapped when the rabbit started jumping. She asked to see it again and again with the same reactions each time. She could not get enough and I cannot count the number of times we have seen it.
The 193 full color illustrations are stunning and the moving characters bring an all new life to this already amazing story. Alicewinks is beautiful and makes it un-put-down-able (yes I made that word up but it totally fits)!
The multimedia presentation along with the really cool narration makes it more than a book rather an experience that the entire family will love (mine already does).
In celebration of the 150th Anniversary of Alice’s Adventure’s in Wonderland, Alicewinks brings the story’s classic illustrations to life for digital audiences through animated video and rich narration. To download this one of a kind iBook, visit iTunes.com/alicewinks
