Lula's Brew for iPad
By Jacob Rhodes
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
“Lula’s Brew” is an picture book written and illustrated by award-winning author Elizabeth O. Dulemba. “Paco and the Giant Chile Plant” and “Glitter Girl and the Crazy Cheese” are two of the picture books she illustrated. Her most recent book, as author and illustrator, is “Soap, Soap, Soap (Jabón, Jabón, Jabón).” Now, she’s brought her magic to the iPad!
As the reader swipes the pages, Elizabeth brings the story to life on the voice track.
ABOUT THE STORY:
Lula's Aunties want her to be a witch just like them. But Lula hates to fly on a broom and prefers to study cookbooks rather than spellbooks -- she wants to be a famous chef. In desperation, the Aunties insist she try to make one last potion. Lula secretly adds her cooking flair and in true witchy fashion ends up creating a brew that bewitches the entire town, and maybe her Aunties too!
This fun rhyming tale transcends the typical Halloween story to appeal to cooks and "foodies" throughout the year.
What's New in Version 1.1
Changed app from sliding image interface to Next/Prev page buttons and page curl.
It's a good story.
The story is good and illustrations are vibrant/good looking and I believe it's worth the download. Just for the story alone.
I just wish that all iPad children's books baked in a little more interactivity into their stories. Basically, it's just an electronic book but not an "experience". An iPad book app can take the story to a whole other level.
If you're only looking for a cute story to read at bedtime, this is it. My 6-yo liked it.
I love everything about this app
From the drawings to the voice over. Everything is done in such a dignifying way that I love reading it to my daughters whenever they ask me to - and they do -:)
Thank you for this book will sure buy more from you.
Love this story of the little witch who wants to cook yummy stuff! Colors are wonderful. Dulemba doesn't talk down to the littlest readers and gives them a main character to love that has a mind of her own and uses it.
I could use some of Lula's stew at my house.
Hope to see more from this talented author/illustrator!
