Galdo’s Gift: The Boovie, Children’s eBook Trailer from Tapocketa Studio on Vimeo.


Galdo’s Gift is a beautifully animated and engaging ebook for “children aged 5-10 years old, and the young at heart!”. It’s full of sumptuous illustration, charm, wit and narrative magic. We’ve been very fortunate to get our eyes, hands and minds round this new digital gem! The ebook experience is a new one in our household and it went down really well with our two boys, both of whom are looking forward to the upcoming release.

Created by authors and illustrators, Trevor Young and Eleanor Long and narrated by Brian Murphy, Galdo’s Gift is scheduled for an early February release. The book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on Mac or iOS device. We’ve pre-ordered our copy and I’d urge you to do the same. You can also download a sample which hints at the magic to come!

As an aside, most schools have access to iPads (if not Macs) and I can imagine KS1&2 teachers being able to use Galdo’s Gift during World Book Day or any other focus on literacy such as the BBC’s 500 Words story-writing competition which returns 15th January for its eighth year.

Galdo’s Gift is expected to be released on 8th February, 2018. Further details here
