With young kids spending more time alone on iPads, the world famous Peanuts brand and digital book publisher Storypanda have created a book app that connects the family together. Snoopy’s You Can Be Anything is now on the iPad using Storypanda’s unique read, create, share platform. This story is the first of many books from the Peanuts catalogue to be published by Storypanda. The Storypanda team has adapted Snoopy’s You Can Be Anything to include animations, interactivity, voice narration and best of all the ability to change elements to enable kids to create their own versions.
“Snoopy’s You Can Be Anything is the ideal story for the Storypanda’s interactive application,” said James Chutter, Co-founder and Chief Creative Director of Storypanda. “The story’s powerful message that kids can be whatever they want is reinforced with our unique storytelling and creating system. We all grew up on Peanuts. Snoopy and the gang are timeless and eminently relatable. What better way to spend time together as a family than creating stories with characters that both parents and kids love?”
Based on the comic strips of everyone’s favorite canine, this book reminds the kid in all of us that we can be anything! From an astronaut to a lawyer or a World War I Flying Ace to just plain cool, the many faces of Snoopy serve as inspiration.
- Read: A full interactive experience with animations, sounds and 3-D effects.
- Create: Add your own child’s name to show all the amazing things your kids can be. Change the text to create your own version of the story. Add funny costumes to Snoopy to give the book your own flair.
- Share: Share your creation through email, Facebook and Twitter so friends and family all around the world can see that children can be anything!
We’ve come to love all the Peanuts characters from Charlie Brown, to Linus, to Peppermint Patty and Lucy, but the lovable canine Snoopy is the star of this show. Charles M. Schulz’s You Can Be Anything story is a great way to talk to your kids about their future and what they want to be.
By using the Create feature, parents and kids can write their own future and by sharing you can tell friends about kids’ dreams. Voice-over narration guides kids through the reading experience or turn-off voice narration to read the book together as a family.
This agreement marks a milestone for Storypanda. Past publishing partners have included Anorak, Sleeping Bear Press, Hachette and over 100 authors and illustrators. Peanuts Worldwide LLC is the largest publisher they have collaborated with thus far and sets the standard for many more partnerships to come.
To read, create and share with Snoopy, you can purchase it for $2.99 by downloading Snoopy’s You Can Be Anything on the iPad. The app is rated 4+ by iTunes and requires iOS 5.0 or later. Compatible with iPad
