We had so much fun making the Frozen Storybook Deluxe app. Editor Vickie Saxon placed a special challenge before narrator Kari Wahlgren: tell the story from the perspectives of both sisters Elsa and Anna. Not only did she give a phenomenal performance, I grinned all session long as Kari wove nuance and subtext into this telling of the story. At various points during the narrative readers can choose to rotate the device for the other sister’s viewpoint, keeping the experience fresh and unique.
Kudos to producer Ashley (Kaye) Bravo for marshaling the efforts of our design, animation, and audio teams in coordination with the developer to make this beautiful app.
