The Mystery of the Gorilla

Maurice, who was once human, has been living unhappily as a gorilla for three years after falling into a puddle of radioactive water while out for a walk one night. Three years later, he finally sees the opportunity to change his life for the better when he stumbles across a ghosticorn tormenting a mad scientist in the middle of the forest.

Written and illustrated by Isaac Kirkwood Smith, Divan Meissenheimer, Jaydee Richardson, Ethan Rogan, and Matt Vastre.

In June 2014, Kiwa in conjunction with the Ministry of Education brought the 48HR SLAM to Wainui School. Under the guidance of Greata Anderson, Munro Te Whata, Behnaz Farzami, Steven Renata and Rhonda Kite, five students undertook an intensive two days of Digital Storytelling, culminating in this digital story told through striking artwork and narrated in the students’ own voices.

The Kiwa team then took this amazing work and assembled it in the form of the Experiential Digital Book that is in front of you. Swipe through and immerse yourself in the story, and tap on the pictures to explore hidden elements.

Features include:

• Swipe-to-Read™ the words to hear and playback the story at your own pace. 

• Auto Play to enjoy the narration. 

• Use the My Narration function to read and record the story yourself and customise your book. 

• Touch the pictures to hear different sound effects. 

• See special animation effects bringing the picture to life.

• Use the Colour Palette to paint each page!
