Coming soon: Who Stole The Moon? interactive book for iPad!

{15 Junio 2011}

I'd like to shed some light on the project that keeps me busy for several months. As you noticed, I do not draw new wallpapers as often as I used to, and that's not because I don't like drawing them any more!

After I completed the artwork for my first book, Who Stole The Moon?, I naturally started to think about the best way to publish it for tablets (iPad first of all, but Android as well). I knew for sure I did not want a boring book in ePub format (the one that you will usually find in iBooks, suitable for most books, but not for richly illustrated).

To keep a story short, I ultimately teamed up with my friends from Chicago, Russia and Ukraine, and we started a company with the ambitious goal of creating the most beautiful interactive e-books possible. We've created our own engine for simple animation and interactivity, and our first book to be published soon for iPad is - Who Stole The Moon?. But that's just the beginning - more books are on their way!

Here is the video preview of the book. I'll link to our publishing house website as soon as the book is available for download.



Please do let me know your opinion in the comments! Thanks!

Влад, это же просто здорово :) Вы собираетесь издавать только детские книги? Пожалуйста, рассказывайте побольше о новых проектах в этой области! И удачи :)

Vadim Dorofeev: we aim at iPad first, but we don't forget about the iPhone too. I'll need to redesign the pages to work good on small screen.

Wow! It's gorgeous Vlad! Now all I need is to convince my husband he needs the iPad2 so I can have his. ;)

Looks fabulous - I'm sure both parents and kids will be fascinated by this kind of interactive multimedia adventure. Brilliant design as always !! Congratulations! Like the others, might even be the final excuse I need to buy an iPad.

Vlad Gerasimov 20 Junio 2011
John. (UK): I know exactly what you mean! I seem to always take on more than I can handle. But I hope it'll be alright soon. Thanks :-)

Yohanna 21 Junio 2011
Hi! i just shared this info on my blog, i think your idea is great and the book is just perfect, I'd like to help as well as the portuguese friend, but with the translation into Spanish, so if you are interested please let me know! :)

Mark Shapiro 30 Junio 2011
Watched your demo, very cool. Few comments, though you probably know yourself, - amount of Android tablets on US market growing like crazy, so Android is a must. Have you thought about the Hebrew translation?

That iBook looks so wonderfull! Now I have three more things in life I want: - the iPad - kids - this iBook Thanks for creating dreams, and congratulations with this highly educational book! I'm sure it's a feast for every kids imagination worldwide! You are the best art-creator I know!

I cannot wait for the book to come out! It's simply gorgeous and I love all your work! Thank you so much! :)

I'm very interested in polish version. Vlad, are you interested in translation?

Vlad Gerasimov 19 Abril 2012
Виктор - спасибо, но конкретно эту книжку нарисовал я один :)

Martijn van Steenbergen 15 Junio 2011
Hi Vlad, Will there be a Dutch translation? :-) I might even be able to help out with that. Martijn.

Bast 15 Junio 2011
I can't wait!

Stefano 15 Junio 2011
Vlad, this looks superb. Yet, I'd rather leave a sturdy, almost indestructible hardcover book in my kid's hands (if I had one...) for him to play with and read whenever HE wants, take it everywhere, cuddle, hide below his pillow...

Vadim Dorofeev 15 Junio 2011
Vlad, it looks very promising! Will it be available for iPad only? I think most of things from trailer will be useable on iPhone / iPod Touch too.

Mehregan 16 Junio 2011
dear vlad!!!! your new disign is very beautiful...congratulation~~~

Margarida Porto 16 Junio 2011
Lindo, lindo. Sempre admirei seu trabalho.Parabéns pela arte.

Andrew ,Bristol, England 16 Junio 2011

Tiago Correia 17 Junio 2011
I like it very much. I also want to buy an Ipad. So soon I can help I'm interested in translating to portuguese. It is possible? Free of charge. I'll just want a copy later.

Vlad Gerasimov 17 Junio 2011
Tiago Correia: excellent! Please can you send me email to vladstudio@gmail.com. Thanks!

John. (UK) 20 Junio 2011
Great stuff Vlad..... but don't try to grow too big.... too fast. Take it steady you are doing great....Keep light on your feet and be happy....

Vlad Gerasimov 21 Junio 2011
Yohanna: thanks! we already have Spanish translation.

Bram Craig 28 Junio 2011
Amazing. You never fail to impress me, but his is a whole other level of awesome. Thank you!

Vlad Gerasimov 30 Junio 2011
Mark: the approach we use will allow us to port our books to many platforms very easily: Android, WebOS, desktop Macs, and more. So yes, Android support definitely coming soon!

Charsb 8 Julio 2011
That's awesome Vlad! I think this is gonna open a new door of opportunity for publishers, what's more fun than reading an interactive book! Cheers Charbs

Alessandro 22 Julio 2011
Since when I bought "Who Stole the Moon" I have to read it to my 3yo son almost every evening (real-time translation is needed...). Please please please do not forget those who cannot afford an iPad: this app is awesome!!

Stan, Canada 13 Noviembre 2011
Looks amazing. Would be nice to send out to my nieces for christmas.

Chris 16 Noviembre 2011
This is awesome! Love the Kiwi in it. I'll definitely be looking out for this for my two sons. I'll probably play with it more than them! Chris (New Zealand)

JONATHAN, OHIO, USA 16 Febrero 2012
