Follow Jimmy into outer space in an action-packed storybook adventure. Jimmy has magical pajamas that have the power to turn him into an astronaut! What sort of things will he encounter when he flies past Saturn, Earth and Mars?
In this Demibooks™ book app written and illustrated by Stacey Williams-Ng, the fantastic tale of Jimmy and his magical jammies are brought to life in richly-textured paintings and rhyming verse.
Created exclusively in the Demibooks interactive format, this story includes a dreamlike original music score by Steve Dixon, professional narration and amazing special effects. Readers can launch a rocket, squish and poke a planet made entirely of goo, and help Jimmy escape the jaws of a hungry space baboon... all with the tap of a finger! These interactive features help advance the story and enhance reading comprehension.
Two ways to read this book:
* "Read-aloud" — listen to the narrated story with lines of poetry highlighted as they are read.
* "Read it myself" — voiceover can be turned off so young readers can follow the story at their own pace.
* Paintings by Stacey Williams-Ng, animated and layered in delightful page layouts.
* Musical score and whimsical sound effects bring the story to life.
* 360-degree rotation allows readers to spin Jimmy.
* Animations and interactions delight readers with surprising effects.
* Glittering stars and musical bouncy-ball moons encourage imaginative play.

2 1/2 year old APPROVED!
Astrojammies is one of the rare children's books for the iPad that is original and interactive without being overly done. It reminds me of something Eric Carle would writer...which is a very good thing!
My two children (a boy and girl, both under 3) have a great time following along. They also love the music and effects (you can't fake screams of approval at that age:-)
I can't wait till Demibooks comes out with a new title.
This is a fun interactive bedtime story. The fun features definitely make it come alive. Recommended.
My 5 1/2 year old loved exploring each page! The interaction really kept him engaged ... My 12 year old was looking over his shoulder the whole time ... I think he might sneak a try on his own when no one's looking!
Well worth the price ... New things to find each time you read it.
