Celebrate Halloween with This Charlie Brown Classic for iPad

Halloween is not the same without this television classic, It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown, which aired every year when pumpkins are spooky and candy is a plenty. For iPad and eBook lovers, the comic can be a fun, interactive experience in the form of an eBook with pumpkin carving and costuming. I heard about this eBook around this time last year, and like the televised show, I think it’s worth a replay every year.

There are games for kids of all ages, of course, but this eBook is a great way to experience the written comic as a young reader. The app lets you tap each word for the spoken sound. My favorite part is the use of the original narration and soundtrack. It’s even got the voice of Peter Robbins, the original voice of Charlie Brown.

Here is a full list of features:

  • Choose from over 1 billion creative avatar and costume combinations to create your own Peanuts character
  • Go trick-or-treating with Charlie Brown and the gang
  • Carve your own pumpkin, bob for apples and play Schroeder’s piano
  • Objects magically pop out of the page to delight little and big kids
  • Touch and drag objects to make them “spring” to life or tilt to watch them slide and move
  • Objects magically pop out of the page to delight little and big kids
  • Jump to any page in the book with the handy table of contents bookmark
  • Educational features such as word and note highlighting to help improve reading and musical skills
  • Hear individual words spoken with the tap of a finger
  • Original dialog from the 1966 animated classic
  • Captivating narration by Peter Robbins, the original voice of Charlie Brown
  • Charming soundtrack featuring music and sound effects from the original holiday special
