With over 16 million copies in print, it is safe to say that Biscuit Visits the Pumpkin Patch is one of the most popular picture books of our time. And on October 11, iStoryTime, the largest library of mobile children’s books apps joined forces with HarperCollins Children’s Books to launch the beloved classic on Apple’s iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch. It is the first time that the tale of the retriever puppy who discovers the pumpkin patch with his friend and his little red wagon has been animated, and the publishers have high hopes that it will provide “a fun and interactive way to encourage reading among little readers.”

“We are big fans of Biscuit and his little adventures and believe by including animations and fun coloring and sticker book activities we provide an immersive reading experience that gets children excited about reading,” said Graham Farrar, Founder of zuuka and its publishing label iStoryTime. “HarperCollins Children’s books is a leader in the industry and we’re extremely proud to be working with such a knowledgeable and innovative team.”
