How do you make a great picture book even better?  Simple – you bring it to life!

Hugless Douglas, written and illustrated by one of my fellow Trapped By Monsters inmates, David Melling, is now an app for the iPad and iPhone.  You can read the book – now with animated illustrations – yourself, or listen to a reading by QI favourite and comedian, Alan Davies.  There are tons of  hidden surprises you can activate by touching different areas of the screen, a gallery of hug types, and even a hug-themed noughts and crosses game!

I spent a very happy hour with my 4 year old son exploring the app.  We both loved it, and I think you will, too.  To find out more, watch the trailer below, or check out Hugless Douglas at the App Store.
