Julia Donaldson Vetoes Gruffalo App

from The Guardian:

The bestselling children's author Julia Donaldson, whose signature rhyming picture books dominate top 10 lists, has revealed that she vetoed an ebook version of her most famous title, The Gruffalo, because she thinks interactive book apps for children are a bad idea.

"I actually really don't like it for children's books," she said on the phone from her home in Glasgow. "I think there are lots of pros to ebooks but I don't feel we have to be controlled by technology and I don't feel we should say, 'Oh, that's the way things are going, that's the future, let's do it.'
