Behind the scenes with Scholastic publisher and Snappyant co-director Ana Vivas

Ana Vivas is a publisher at Scholastic Australia and co-director of Snappyant, which creates interactive children’s book apps for tablets. ‘In 2010, I downloaded an app on my iPhone called Peekaboo Barn (Night & Day Studios). It was a very simple app, well designed, which captured all the things I had wanted to do with a printed book but couldn’t. It opened my eyes to new possibilities in children’s book creation,’ writes Vivas. Read about her career journey here
