Amsterdam, The Netherlands 12th May 2011 - Tizio Publishing has released a new children’s book app, beautifully illustrated and written by author and illustrator Chantal Bourgonje. Fierce Grey Mouse is for children ages 2-8 and teaches the importance of not only being yourself but also being true to yourself.
Fierce Grey Mouse is a story about Little Grey Mouse who wants to be FIERCE for a day. He dreams of wild animals, does his exercises, eats all his porridge and drinks all his milk. He ferociously practises his roaring and pouncing skills. But what happens when his friends, Edie the duck and Kay the piglet want to play with Little Grey Mouse and all they find is Fierce Grey Mouse?
The app is beautifully presented on the iPad, but is also available for the iPhone and soon for the iPod Touch.
The book is written and read in English, Dutch and Spanish accompanied with many colourful animations and rich sounds. There are five separate English accents depending on where in the world you live or would like to hear.
Included is also a memory game and colouring pages so your child may bring their own interpretation of the book to life. It will surely captivate your youngster and remind us all of the value of being ourselves and that our friends like us as we are.
