Pulpo! the tiny squid is a picture book smartphone app and project by copyeditor Margit Knapp and her friends. A range of wonderful, painted images introduces kids to the world of Pulpo, the happy yellow squid. The application is available in 5 different languages: German, English, Portuguese, Spanish and Chinese.
Interactive elements enliven the vivacious picture book app: In the sea, Pulpo encounters many other animals and encourages them to join the fun and play. m box programmed the interactive app based on animated artworks by Claudia Rohrmoser. The lovingly crafted children’s app, which also works well as a bedtime story, is available for iPhone and iPad from the App Store via Bastei Lübbe.
