The My Very Hungry Caterpillar App was recently awarded the prestigious BolognaRagazzi Digital Award for 2015. The educational app was created in collaboration with The World of Eric Carle and StoryToys, a leading publisher of entertaining, engaging and educational apps for children. The deal was brokered by The Joester Loria Group, exclusive licensing agent for the brand.
The My Very Hungry Caterpillar App was chosen from more than 190 entries. The prize is awarded by the Bologna Children’s Book Fair and aims to highlight innovation and excellence in the digital children’s publishing field. The BolognaRagazzi Digital Awards first began in 2012 and prizes are usually awarded in both fiction and nonfiction categories. However the judges only awarded one winner this year since they felt the My Very Hungry Caterpillar app crosses categories.
My Very Hungry Caterpillar is a virtual character app that lets children nurture, care for and play with their very own Very Hungry Caterpillar. The 3D animation captures the unique style of Eric Carle’s award-winning art, delivering a wonderful experience for the millions of fans of the best-selling classic children’s book, first published 46 years ago. My Very Hungry Caterpillar is available in the App Store, globally priced at $3.99.
The app is an exciting part of the extensive licensing program The Joester Loria Group has developed for The World of Eric Carle.
