The Artifacts is a brand new, original picture book created especially for iPad/iPod Touch and iPhone.
Designed for children aged 4 and up, this is an interactive picturebook about a boy called Asaf who loves to collect.
It is inspired in equal parts by: childhood collections of bizarre and unlikely things, memories of moving house, the minimalist movement, and the joy of creating imaginative worlds of one’s own.
READ *THE ARTIFACTS* AND EXPLORE ASAF’S IMAGINATION:
• Tap the screen to make Asaf’s collections appear
• Help him to find treasures on bin-day
• Race with his leaf-munching caterpillars
• Day scenes change with a tap into exciting, creature-filled nights
• Rub-to-reveal Asaf in a wizard’s basement, or brushing his teeth in a steamy mirror
• Watch his mind fill with books as he reads in the library
• Or floating around on a tiny planet in space…
• With 21 hand-drawn pages, the narration plays automatically to keep readers immersed in the reading experience.
• Narration and sound effects can each be turned off from the main menu.
• Beautiful music score, composed by New Zealand musician Chris Hurn especially for this story.

Ratings and Reviews
Very engaging and thought provoking.
Pleasant picture book!
Nice picture book with good picture collections. It would be a enjoyable book for kids to play with. Some navigation improvement could be done in future versions.
I am a child, (I cannot tell you my age) and I very much enjoy this interactive book. The illustrations are amazing, the music interesting, and the interactive part blew me away! 5 stars for sure!
