From book idea to iPad app. . . .

Our next Countdown Interview will feature the iPad app, “A Present for Milo,” produced by Ruckus Media.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

“A Present for Milo” started as a picture book idea. Then it was turned into an original iPad app, harnessing full use of its unique capabilities. The inspired combination of  Milo-the-cat’s perky characterization, plus many surprises for kids to tap and discover,  and dazzling color textures culminated in a 3-book contract with Blue Apple books.

We’ll chat with author/illustrator Mike Austin, meet his agent, Rubin Pfeffer, and go behind the scenes.
