DAVE BENSON-PHILLIPS TO READ POP-OFF

by Book Frog

Dave Benson-Phillips joins us again to read the Iddly Widdly Piddly Pop-Off by Daniel Corcoran.

We’ve teamed up with Australian children’s book author and illustrator Daniel Corcoran and now Dave Benson Phillips to bring you the universally amusing print title, The Iddly Widdly Piddly Pop-off to the appbook world.

Dave Benson-Phillips, known for presenting, amongst others, TV series ‘Get your Own Back’ and ‘Playdays’ has been confirmed to narrate the book.

His enthusiasm and playfulness is a perfect fit for the Iddly Widdly Pop-Off which follows the story of a barn full of animals plagued with a pongy pop-off – they must discover and unveil the culprit!

(For those not familiar with the Australian terminology a pop-off is a bum parp, a fart, a bottom burp!) With some adorable mini-games, a whole feast of ridiculous sound effects and some hilarious animations, this book is sure to make you giggle all the way to bedtime.

Features include:

  • Narrated by Dave Benson-Phillips

  • Hand drawn illustrations

  • Hilarious animations

  • Find interactive moments hidden on each page

  • Mini-games

  • Read to Me and Read by Myself options with individual word highlights

Box Of Frogs Media have provided production management, art services (interpretation and animation), technical build and is the publisher on behalf of Daniel. This book is culmination of many months of work and Box Of Frogs Media is thrilled to be involved in such an exciting collaboration.

The Iddly Widdly Pop-Off has been converted into an interactive digital app book format and rebuilt using Box Of Tricks, BoF’s collection of appbook goodies.

About Daniel Corcoran

Originating from Perth in Western Australia but now based in Melbourne, Daniel continues a successful career as an author, designer and illustrator but his lifelong passion has always been cartooning and drawing.  Daniel started writing children’s books to raise money for the Melbourne Royal Children’s Hospital’s via the Elise Sneddon Foundation and he continues to support this valuable cause through sales proceeds from his books.  Daniel loves writing and illustrating stories that help us all ‘laugh at life often’.

‘The world is too serious; especially for our kids, and we all need more things to laugh at,’ says Daniel.  Through the watchful eyes of his wife and two kids, Daniel is bringing his hilarious stories to life with a unique style and colorful illustrations.   The feedback from author visits and book readings across Australia shows Daniel also has a natural talent for presenting.  He continues to entertain kids with interactive live sketching demonstrations and a recent review from a private school in Melbourne stated ‘Many staff believes that Daniel was the best author we have ever had.’

In more recent news, Daniel has started a YouTube channel showing his ’2 Minute Doodles’ really snappy doodle videos to show kids how doodling can be a doddle! Check it out here: http://bit.ly/2minsdoodles
