Little Nonsense app seeks child narrators
Children’s poet and illustrator Colin West is transferring his rhymes from book to screen – and children across the UK are being invited to take part. Little Nonsense is a new iPhone/iPad app based on “The Big Book of Nonsense” which features nonsense rhymes and tongue-twisters, as well as a selection of games.
The app is already available as a free test version with ten poems and two games (no narration at present). The final version will include narration by children. To be in with a chance of inclusion, just record an audio file of your child reading one of Colin’s poems and send it in by e-mail before the end of August. Full details of how to do this are on the website. The best recordings will win a book by Colin and will be featured in the final app, due for release by AppToonz in September 2012.
The preview app is available from http://itunes.apple.com/ie/app/little-nonsense-preview/id530946628?mt=8
