‘A Charlie Brown Christmas’ Gets Storybook App

When Charles Schultz‘s classic comic strip Peanuts was adapted into A Charlie Brown Christmas back in 1965, a legend was made. Digital publishing company Loud Crow Interactive is trying to do a 21st century update with an app version of the cartoon.

The app is a digitized storybook based on the cartoon. It is laid out like a storybook with a narration track that highlights the words as they are read. The story is narrated by Peter Robbins, the voice of the original Charlie Brown. The pages include animated features like dancing kids and snow falling.

eBookNewser has more: “There are also interactive elements such as a play-along piano. Readers can play along on Schroeder’s piano while learning how to read tablature by following notes that are highlighted on a black-and white piano keyboard. The above video shows how it works.”

To learn more about book apps, check out our Publishing App Summit next week in New York.
