StorySmyth Ventures - the producer of the StorySmyth Tales range of digital mobile children's stories - has launched a new range of titles featuring children's books from Oxford University Press.
StorySmyth Tales is a collection of illustrated children's books for iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch. The tales are told by a 3D CGI storyteller - the StorySmyth - who lives in a fairytale cottage surrounded by his collection of story books.
The deal with OUP is on a range of illustrated book titles from authors including Caroline Jayne Church among others.
"It is a genuine privilege to be working with such great titles and with such a prestigious and internationally regarded publisher," said StorySmyth creator, Nick Underwood. "In many ways, what we're providing is a completely new window for the books we feature, and this will hopefully bring them and their creators to the attention of a whole new audience."
David Bowers, OUP VP of global business development, added: "We are on a mission to disseminate the highest quality educational content for kids. This collaboration reflects such dedication by embracing the very latest in digital distribution."
The StorySmyth Tales range is initially only available on the iTunes platform, although there are plans to bring the collection to other handheld devices such as the Nintendo DS, as well as make them available on the recently launched Mac App Store as the range expands.
