Book App Astrojammies Blasts into Hardcover

A children's book application that's led the charge in combining literature and technology gets a hardcover edition. Stacey Williams-Ng is the author and illustrator of the interactive children's book Astrojammies, which is now available as a hardcover print book. It was first published as a book app for the iPad by Chicago-based Demibooks – where Williams-Ng is now Creative Director. You can find the book in the iPad app store, as well as a free version called Astrojammies Lite. The music bumps we've heard are two versions of the Astrojammies theme written by Steve Dixon. Williams-Ng first spoke with Stephanie Lecci in February. She’ll be launching the hardcover Astrojammies and talking about publishing book apps at Boswell Book Company in Milwaukee this Thursday the 15th.
