HarperCollins Children's Books, Bean Creative and "Weird Al" Yankovic, America's leading satirist of popular music and culture, have created When I Grow Up, an interactive app based on Yankovic's best-selling children's book. The app is available on the iTunes App Store for iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch.
With virtuosic narration by Weird Al, fans of all ages can explore the story like never before as young Billy catalogs his wildly improbable career choices in an unbridled celebration of creativity and possibilities. With multiple interactions and animations on every screen, fun and challenging games based on the story, and the ability to personalize the app, users will eagerly consider what they want to be when they grow up.
"Ever since I was a small child, I dreamed of one day helping to produce a cross-platform app that would be sold in the iTunes Store. I was a very prescient kid," said the always amazing Yankovic. That has got to be the best quote ever. Love you, Al!
Along with exclusive new art, the When I Grow Up app contains all the dazzling wordplay, hilarious rhymes, and whimsical illustrations that readers have raved about since the book's publication in February.
Go here to nab the app. It's only $2.99.
