The Heart and the Bottle App joins HarperCollins’ growing list of interactive picture books for iPhone and iPad.

The App features a level of animation and interaction never before seen in a picture book application, and is narrated by Oscar nominated actress Helena BonhamCarter, who commented:

"This is a magical iPad app that brings Oliver Jeffers’ The Heart and the Bottle to life in the most amazing way. My 3yearold daughter loves my iPad, and she’s going to love this. It’s delicious!"

Oliver’s beautifully rendered characters and scenes are brought to life through detailed and interactive animations that allow young readers to follow along with the story while discovering surprises within the illustrations. Users can sprout flowers with a touch of a fingertip, turn a quiet scene into a flurry of snow by giving the device a shake, draw in the sand, turn day to night with the swipe of a finger, and much more.

Readers will have the opportunity to have the story read to them or read for themselves about a girl who loses her curiosity for the world when she finds her fathers chair empty, never to be filled again. She stores her heart in a bottle around her neck in order to keep it safe, but as life goes on the world doesn’t seem to be full of as much wonder. Unless someone smaller and still curious can help the girl find a way to get her heart back out of the bottle…

Awardwinning talent Oliver Jeffers introduces The Heart & the Bottle App for iPad

Martin Orton, Managing Director of Bold Creative, commented: "This App is a work of art. It proves on so many levels that the iPad is the perfect storytelling tool: more interactive than TV; more engaging than a book!"

Available in Apple’s App store from December 2010, The Heart and the Bottle App for iPad redefines the picture book for the digital era.

Tom Conway, Digital Publishing Manager of HarperCollins Children’s Books, commented: "The Heart and the Bottle for iPad is inspiring, elegant, innovative, and absolutely relevant for today's readers – both young and old. We think it’s both a benchmark in digital picture book publishing and a sign of incredible things to come from HarperCollins Children’s Books."
