Penguin, Macmillan and Nosy Crow talk digital books for children
How publishers can make reading experiences that parents feel 'more positive about than Angry Birds'.
For much of the book publishing world, the move to digital is all about e-books. That brings big challenges (and regulatory scrutiny) around distribution deals and pricing, but less around the actual content and design.
For children's books, it's a different story. The text-centric e-books market has seen children's publishers turning their picture-books into apps.
A session at the London Book Fair's Digital Minds conference explored the implications with panelists from publishers Macmillan, Penguin and Nosy Crow, and transmedia production firm Starlight Runner Entertainment.
