Millie and Bombassa iBooks go live on iTunes!

I’ve been waiting weeks for Millie and Bombassa Dizzy DIY to be approved on the iTunes iBook Store and today it has gone live. And then, after just a few days, the second Millie and Bombassa book, Air Scare, has gone live to. My cup runneth over and I feel joy abounding!! Click the pictures to go to the iBooks store.

Bombassa is a lazy but loveable rhino. Millie is a sensible but sweet bird. Together they make a great pair!

These stories have consistently been at the top of my Library borrowing statistics as they are read again and again. I know they are much loved. I love Bombassa – He’s kind of my grumpy, don’t want to get out of bed side of me, while Millie is the side of me that sees me still working at quarter to 11 on a Friday night!

You Can see me reading the Dizzy DIY here.

Each story contains a drawing video and a quiz, and Dizzy DIY has a video showing you how to make an origami box.

If you like these books, please leave a comment on iTunes. It really does help.

Dizzy DIY – a Millie & Bombassa story

Now on iPad from the iTunes Store.
Watch Shoo Rayner tell one of his favourite stories about dozy, lazy Bombassa and bright sparky Millie. Auntie Daz is coming to tea and she thinks Bombassa has been in bed all day!

The Dizzy DIY iBook work continues

I’ve been so busy the last two weeks, visiting schools for World Book Day, that’ my progress on the Dizzy DIY iBook for iPad has been really held up. Held up so much and I find school visits so exhausting, that I’ve decided to give up school visits for the foreseeable future.

In the video I’m making another video to show how to make origami boxes, like the ones Millie and Bombassa make for Auntie Daz when she comes round for tea. I just need to make another video of how to draw Millie and make an intro sequence and I can start putting the iBook to bed.

I’ve also been working out how to get my ISBN numbers registered and seem to have that sorted. More in the next video.
