Illustrator Elite Avni-Sharon adapted Karel Capek’s intriguing short story “The Man Who Knew How To Fly” and turned it into a captivating and vibrant children’s tale with its own unique style, bubbly colors and a truly compelling voiceover by Gabriella Lewis. Available in Hebrew already, zuuka presents the title now for the first time in English.
“The app blends its retro look with solid app design and a few well-integrated extras, like a coloring-book page, a dress-up game and the option of tilting the iPad to guide the little girl’s aerial movements. It is an adaptation that manages a tricky balance between heartfelt and hokey within an app that has a distinctive look and feel.” (Kirkus’ Review)
