Check out this You Tube video of the new Shrek Forever After iPad kids book, currently available at a bargain introductory price of $1.99. As Mashable reports, the app, which is also available for iPhone and iPod touch, is produced by iStoryTime and DreamWorks and based on the last film in the Shrek series, Shrek Forever After, which is out today. The storyline revolves around Shrek trying to recapture his past glory days as an ogre, during the course of which he is tricked into striking a bargain with Rumplestiltskin, trading a day of his life with her. Consequently he ends up in an alternative universe, one where heís never met Donkey, Puss in Boots, or Gingy, or saved Fiona.
The book can either be read by the narrator, or by the child themselves or a parent. The app includes character audio from the movie, including Mike Myers as Shrek and Eddie Murphy as Donkey, automatic or manual page turning, and highlighted text to help young readers make associations between the words that they hear and the words that they see.
