Selected as one of the 10 Best Children's Book Apps by Kirkus Reviews, iPhoneLife & Babble.com *** Featured in CNET, The New York Times & Huffington Post ***
"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." - Kirkus Reviews, recipient of a starred review for books of remarkable merit
"The illustrations in the book are a ton of fun and you can see them in either 2D or 3D. When you read the story in 3D the illustrations really come to life and pop right out at you." - The iPhone Mom
Written for ages 4 and up!
What happens when you wake up on the wrong side of the bed? You see the world in a different light or, in little Mott Turner's case, from the ceiling! Imagine how kids can identify with little Mott, who wakes confused and irritable one morning, only to find himself in one upside-down misadventure after another, until finally he is right side up and once again, level-headed.
The moral of the story: It helps to be in the right frame of mind before you get out of bed!
- Viewable in both 2D and 3D. The 2D book can be turned "upside down" for a funny new perspective. Kids love seeing little Mott on the ceiling!
- Interactive touch spots! Tickle Mott on each page to bring him to life.
- Includes audio options for "read to me" (read by the author) or "read myself" when parents and children would like to read at their own pace.
- Animated mini-movies, music and sound effects provide a rich multimedia reading experience.
- Includes Auto-play feature for automatic page turning.
- Easily order inexpensive 3D glasses from within the app.
Please note that red/cyan 3D glasses are needed for viewing the stereoscopic 3D version. 3D glasses from the movie theater will not work, since they use a different technology incompatible with the iPad's screen. Red/cyan 3D glasses can be easily purchased via a link in the app or at most comic book stores.
"There are several qualities that make this book remarkably special. To start, the illustrations, narration, and soundtrack are masterfully created for the iPad platform." - GiggleApps

Ratings and Reviews
Technology meets Literacy!
My first graders love imagining What If? scenarios. So they were very excited to read/listen to this story of what would happen if they woke up on the wrong side of the bed. Not only did they enjoy the story but many were even inspired to write what happened if they woke up on the wrong side of bed.
As a class, we loved the plot and the illustrations. One student felt it was a "cartoon and book all rolled up into one"! But we couldn't agree if we preferred it in 2-D or in 3-D using the 3-D glasses. (I preferred it ,along with the majority of the class, in 3-D using the 3-D glasses).
Overall, we recommend this app!
My kids all enjoyed this in 2-d, grat to talk with them after. This book worked for all 3 of my kids and they were interested in to see what was going to happen next. The 3-d glasses made it more fun. My daughter was giggling alot. My youngest 7 and the older two with special needs are 9 and 17. This app can be used as a way to teach basic directionaal words like up and down left and right. We did also discuss whats wrong in the picture. All around great app, multi purpose in my home!
A tranquil and alluring book for kids.
The art is quite unique engaging the kids to look around and explore. The story itself is intriguing and brings up a conversation about the directions of up side and down as well as left and right. Also the 3D feature is a nice bonus (when using 3D cyan-red glasses). The interactions are a bit limited and simple. More points to click on with reactions would have been very welcome. Overall a nice read.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
