Developer's Description

The Waterhole by Graeme Base. Introductory price Featured on the Australian AppStore!Building on the great feedback weve received for our Animalia App for iPad and iPhone, we are excited to bring you the latest Graeme Base iPad App: The Waterhole.The original book is an ingenious fusion of counting book, puzzle book, storybook and art book an exhilarating journey of discovery from the plains of Africa and the jungles of the Amazon to the woodlands of North America and the desert of outback Australia. Our App brings Graemes wonderful art to digital life with an animated read through and an array of games to challenge and delight kids and adults alike. GRAEME READSAlthough it can be fun to just read through the book with Graeme, there is a lot more going on behind the scenes.After Graeme finishes reading each page, count up the animals on each page. Their silhouettes will appear in the border friezes.And when you get to the Grand Finale page the counting takes on a whole new dimension!Each illustration is set in a particular geographic location. Can you identify where we are in the world on each page? The original music soundtrack might give you a clue. HIDDEN ANIMALSIn each artwork there are ten hidden animals that live in that geographical region. Tap a silhouette animal in the border to highlight it then try to find the hidden version in the artwork. The hidden animal will glow and the border animal will transform into full colour. In the Grand Finale, the challenge is to find all the frogs that have gone missing! ANIMATCHChoose your favourite artwork then flip cards to match silhouette and colour animal pairs to reveal the art beneath. You can play solo, against the computer or against a friend. When you finish the puzzle watch the scene beneath bloom into full colour. The puzzles reset differently each time so you will never play the same game twice. LEAPFROGTry to get the red and green frogs from one side of the waterhole to the other. It looks easy but there is definitely a trick to it! Once youve mastered the technique with six frogs, try it with eight!GRAEME BASEGraeme Base is the internationally acclaimed author of twelve books which have collectively sold in excess of five million copies worldwide.
