B. Sora and the Cloud fly higher
Felicia Hoshino's (www.felishino.com) tale Sora and the Cloud continues to enchant readers of all ages.

Foreword magazine provided this glowing review:

"A little boy is displaced from his home when he climbs aboard a cloud that sets sail above his Japanese city. Sora is treated to a birds-eye view of a construction site, an amusement park, and a traditional kite festival. When he falls asleep on the cloud, his dreams are indistinguishable from the otherworldly reality of the journey. 'Like a mobile in the breeze, Sora's sky adventure spins all around him.' A delicate and enchanting bilingual story with exceptional watercolor scenes."

Meet Felicia in California next week in San Carlos at the Reading Bug (3/18). Her artwork is displayed at the Sun Gallery in San Leandro, CA.

C. Welcome to Monster Isle is now an Apple app!
Welcome to Monster Isle (www.monsterisle.net) is our third iOS app produced by Mobad Media (following Billie the Unicorn and The Year of the Dragon) and brings a rainbow of monsters to life!

This fan-favorite story is like Gilligan's Island meeting Godzilla.

Now the charismatic illustrations by Jeff Miracola (www.jeffmiracola.com) dynamically spring off the screen in 3D, with sound FX and interactivity. With engaging narration and "read-aloud" playback, this app features a lot of creatures and packs visual punch!

Have fun finding hidden pieces to the island's map (uncovering where each monster lives)and discovering other secrets.

Check it out on iTunes and watch the YouTube video:


Billie the Unicorn
- iTunes App

Editor's Choice:
"Children and parents alike are going to fall in love with Billie The Unicorn. Between the gorgeous artwork, 3D effects, and the charming story, Billie The Unicorn will become a favorite for every family who downloads it. The artwork alone in this book is worth adding to the library, but the story makes it that much better."
- AppTudes


The Year of the Dragon
- iTunes App

"A fun way for those strong and passionate Dragon-year babies (be they children, parents or grandparents) to share a story that embraces their Chinese zodiac characteristics through a beautiful series of illustrations and animations that breathe life into the story."
