Brief | To produce a fully interactive iBook version of the novel

The author Sally Gardner, wanted to show a little of what it’s like to be dyslexic. To show that it is a gift, not something to be cured. The hero of her book is a dyslexic and she shows with great skill that his world is not so different to our own.

We were asked to take the hugely popular novel and turn it into a complete interactive iBook, bringing the story to life on a whole new level. We ensured we used a Dyslexic friendly font and background colour and incorporated videos and audio clips into the iBook. We also included animation of a dyslexic reading experience. Quizzes, writing prompts and dyslexia examples were all included in this multi touch iBook.
