Philadelphia, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/05/2014 -- Fireworks, a magic show, and giveaway of four Kindle Fire tablets will herald the debut of Ms. Susan Love’s animated eBook, Ms. Love’s Mystical Island Adventure, Saturday, September 13 at 8PM on the North Lawn of Sister Cities Park, 210 North 18th Street, Philadelphia. The hour long extravaganza is free and open to the public.
About the eBook
Ms. Love’s animated chapter eBook for children was inspired by fanciful island adventure stories written by her students. Many of the students included Ms. Love as one of the characters in their stories. “I developed my own Caribbean-themed curriculum in order to convey to my students that although our environment plays an important role in shaping our early years, it doesn’t have to limit or define us,” states Ms. Love. “Like our immigrant ancestors, each of us is on a personal journey to a better future.” ‘Ms. Love’s Mystical Island Adventure’ delivers to readers of all ages a compelling message about risk-taking and personal empowerment.
The eBook, developed and distributed by KiteReaders, who have developed eBooks for Walt Disney, is the number one platform for children’s eBooks. The book may be purchased at Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Apple iPad online stores early September.
Ms. Love will introduce the evening’s program with a sneak preview of the eBook’s full color illustrations, premiering to the world of digital books gifted artist Patrick Harrington’s exclusive cutting-edge eBook animation techniques.
Internationally acclaimed magician Anthony Salazar and his assistant, Ashley, will add laughter and fun to the presentation by cooking up a cauldron of superfragalistic magical illusions. During the show, four lucky children will be selected from the audience to receive free Kindle Fire tablets.
The event will conclude with a light show and animated fireworks.
Afterward guests are welcome to join Ms. Love, illustrator Patrick Harrington and magician Anthony Salazar for a meet and greet at the Logan Square Café located in the park.
Pre-release reviewers have received the book with critical acclaim. Former Walt Disney animation character designer, Stephen Silver, was impressed with the project. “Right on. Well done. It’s colorful, intriguing, and bizarre. Kids are going to love it!”
Former TV host, Joan Steffend, adds, “It is a wonderfully fun story! This fun ride invites its readers to recognize their own brilliance and to use it to make the world a better place. It tells a magical story of high adventure with young, can-do characters you'll want to hear more from."
