Kickstarter - Olive the Woolly Bugger App

Do your kids love Olive the Woolly Bugger? Do you have an iPad? Wouldn't it be neat if there was an app for that?  Well author Kirk Werner is working to create an app for Olive the Woolly Bugger and is using the fund raising website Kickstarter to get this project off the ground.

From the Kickstarter page... "Electronic devices for reading books have become very popular with adults and kids, and while I myself hope print books never go out of style, there is an emerging market in the digital world. The app is already in development and will feature condensed versions of the first two books, shortened stories with younger readers in mind. In addition to the learning aspects of the app, there will also be some fun gameplay offered; Chuckin' Bugs will be a simple game in which a character named Lefty Crayfish tosses a variety of insects to hungry fish. While mostly for fun, the game will mimic some of the challenges we face when actually fishing–not all of the fish will be easy to catch!"

Check out the Kickstarter page for more information and make a pledge to support this project.
