We are thrilled to announce that the Indian folktale The Drum, written by Rob Cleveland, is now available as an interactive app with SmartyPal. In The Drum, a poor boy''s dream of having a drum takes him on an unlikely journey of discovery. He meets several people who guide him along the way. In time, he learns to make his own luck.
A SmartyPal executive pointed out that “Our strategic partnership with August House not only broadens the diversity of our growing library, it also gives their gifted group of storytellers another way to impact children with their retelling of timeless stories from the oral tradition.” More interactive apps of August House folktales are in production for the iPad, as this is the start of a happy August House and SmartyPal partnership.
