"If You Give A Liberal A Latte" storybook app for iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch was released today by Trajan Books. Written and illustrated by Stephen Cody, the creator of the children’s enhanced iBook "There’s An Elephant Following Me”, "If You Give A Liberal a Latte" serves is a sequel to “If You Give a Conservative a Cookie”.
In this story, a small mule wonders into a coffee shop. The nice young woman who owns the shop waits on him, giving him three lattes in quick succession.
That act of commerce begins an unintended chain of events that tests the young woman’s patience and resolve and, if she allows things to get out of hands, could alter her life permanently. If you give a liberal a latte, he’ll need to know whether it was made from fair-trade, eco-friendly coffee beans. Now wildly caffeinated, the burro will takes the young women out on the high seas, to a meeting with a pair of foreign bears, and to a place where money seems to fall like rain.
After a full day, including a trip to an emergency room, the thick-skulled donkey finds he is thirsty once more. When he asks for another latte to give him enough of a buzz to get through the day, the young woman makes her a choice.
"If You Give a Liberal A Latte" incorporates 3D renders, the same type used in Disney/Pixar’s Toy Story series, in telling the story of what happens when an unwanted guest shows up, tries to take over, and just won’t leave.
The app includes:
* 36 richly illustrated storybook pages
* A witty, comical and thought-provoking story
* Humorous sound effects provide a dynamic multimedia reading experience
* Audio options to "Read to Me" or "Read Myself"
* Written for ages 9 and up
