Children who love stories about mysterious creatures such as the Loch Ness Monster and Bigfoot will enjoy this imaginative tale about two children who wander away from their parents’ remote campsite, uncover one the world’s most unlikely teenagers, and have a night they’ll never forget.
My son has always loved monsters. A few years ago, when he was eight, he showed me an Internet picture of Bigfoot riding the Loch Ness Monster. I joked that maybe they were on a date. Then we had a laugh thinking about what would happen if they got married and had a baby. What would that baby look like? What would his life be like?
Lochfoot was born.
This animated story was developed exclusively for tablets. Lochfoot is a multimedia reading experience with 26 pages of rich illustrations, music, sound effects, voices and narration. It’s geared toward readers ages 4-8 who will enjoy the simple story of discovery, friendship and adventure.
The settings panel allows for page jumping as well as voice and narration options for parent/child reading.
Lochfoot was designed and illustrated by W. Scott Matthews who is a Creative Director and Partner at The Tremendousness Collective in St. Louis, Missouri. Development by James Macanufo at Tintanker.com.
My Daughter Loves This!
We downloaded “Lochfoot” yesterday afternoon—it was the perfect way to fight off the snowy afternoon. We watched it together and she absolutely fell in love with the story. The unique Lochfoot is both Bigfoot and the Lochness Monster but has a great, friendly personality and a big heart. My daughter has watched and read this story at least half a dozen times—she even dreamed about it last night and was fielding recommendations for another book this morning at breakfast! Great work, great book, can’t wait for the next in the series!
Mysterious, fun, funny and sweet.
At book stores, I always gravitate toward the young adult or children’s sections. I love looking at the illustrations styles and especially like when a story is original, has a brand of humor that adults will get and ones you know kids will really be drawn into. The artwork in Lochfoot is really great, the story manages to be very mysterious, fun, funny and sweet. Kids are going to love it. And so will their parents.
Our whole family loved it!
So clever! So creative! My whole family thoroughly enjoyed this story- especially my son and daughter. My son loved the artistry and my daughter so enjoyed the adventure these two young people go on. We hope more follow on stories come!
