The Tortoise and the Hare: REMATCH!

What happens AFTER the Tortoise and the Hare’s famous race? Written and illustrated by Wallace E. Keller, the creator of the best-selling children’s book app “The Wrong Side of the Bed 3D,” REMATCH begins with a retelling of the classic fable and adds a hilarious new continuation to the story.
While the Tortoise has become quite famous after winning the race, the Hare is left with a badly bruised ego. Seeking advice from the wise old Owl – “If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again” – Hare realizes what he needs to do … he challenges Tortoise to – a rematch!

• 34 richly illustrated storybook pages
• A witty, comical and thought-provoking story
• Over 90 interactive touch spots – tickle the characters to see them react!
• Animated mini-movies, an original musical score and humorous sound effects provide a dynamic multimedia reading experience
• Audio options to “Read to Me” (narration read by the author) or “Read Myself”
• Includes Auto-play feature for automatic page turning
• Written for ages 4 and up!

The Tortoise and the Hare: REMATCH! incorporates the signature high-quality production elements that made Keller’s first children’s book app, The Wrong Side of the Bed, a top 10 ranking iPad paid book app and a standout digital book according to Kirkus Reviews: “For readers still unconvinced that the features of the iPad can translate printed children’s books into full-blown multimedia experiences, this one will change your point of view.”

While maintaining the high standards of story and illustration established by the print industry, The Tortoise and the Hare: REMATCH! storybook app goes far beyond a printed children’s book with animated movie introductions for key book pages, touch animations that show character reactions, a musical score supporting each page of the story and professional narration by the author.

These additional digital book elements are carefully selected and crafted to enhance rather than distract from the storytelling experience. They reflect the publisher’s recognition of the educational value of narrative storytelling in children’s books, as well as the company’s commitment to providing a reading-based alternative to games.

Author/illustrator Wallace E. Keller has illustrated children’s books for Scholastic, Harcourt, Rizzoli International, McGraw-Hill and Houghton Mifflin. A graduate of Art Center College of Design, his illustrations have appeared in The New York Times Book Review, Business Week, Ms. and Psychology Today. His first children’s book app, The Wrong Side of the Bed 3D, received a Kirkus Star and was voted a best children’s book app by Kirkus Reviews, iPhone Life and Babble.
The Tortoise and the Hare: REMATCH! is part of the Tickle Books® line of touchable animated children’s books from See Here Studios, combining the quality of traditional printed children’s books with the engaging features of digital media to nurture a life-long love of reading.

Little Stars Thought's

 2 out of 3! Will the Hare ever learn? ,  Slow and steady always wins the race!

This is a lovely illustrated interactive book that has a quirky and funny humour that my kids loved.
While staying with the same story line we have all know about from reading this story as children.
Tortoise and the Hare rematch goes beyond learning the moral of the story that slow and steady wins the race. It shows us not to give up and teaches us if we try trying again, focusing on what we are doing we will eventually succeed. 

The interface is bright and colourful, the illustrations are fantastic
I just love how the Tortoise does yoga and has his own exercise bike! And how the hare gets so infuriated with how calm and easy going the tortoise is.

This time the hare would not give up and I found myself cheering him on with my children. 1st time he lost, the second time we were laughing at the hare, will he win the 3rd time?

I highly recommend buying this book to read for story time with your kids
