Amazon introduces illustrated children’s stories app

In the US, Amazon has introduced a new app featuring short, illustrated stories designed to look like text-chat for young readers, reports Publishers Weekly. The app, offered at an introductory price of US$2.99 (A$3.89) per month, has several hundred stories and is available on iOS, Android and Amazon Fire. The stories are targeted at kids aged seven to 12, and are illustrated with cartoon characters exchanging dialogue in a format designed to look like characters are texting messages to each other.
