Wuwu & Co. – A magical picture book
Our first published step in book. In this award winning interactive picture book you follow the adventures of five odd creatures, who need your aid during the coldest winter in 2.000 years.
The story is written by Merete Pryds Helle, illustrated by children’s book illustrator Kamila Slocinska, with interaction design by Tim Garbos, translated into English by Paul Garrett, and narrated by the wonderful Alistair Findlay. Wuwu & Co. – A magical picture book is produced and developed by Step In Books.
You can read the story about Wuwu and her friends when your mobile device is lying down. When you pick it up, you are suddenly looking into the forest where the odd creatures live. Here you can experience Wuwu’s artful world, while you are using your device in various ways to help her friends. You could, for example, shake your device to get the snow off the tree, or shout into it to wake up the Everetts, or even use the camera to find colours in the real world in order to light up the darkness for Storm’s tango loving family.
Wuwu & Co. opens a magical window into the narrative. It’s a charming story with surprising physical interactions. Step in books will teach children about the interaction between the physical and the digital world and connect the actual with the virtual.
Wuwu & Co. – A magical picture book was released in Danish in November 2014 for iPads and launched globally in English for iPad and iPhone in august 2015. It has later been translated into Spanish, German and French. Special thanks to The Danish Arts Foundation for supporting the project.
