The Very Hungry Bum, written and illustrated by Claudia Rowe, narrated by John Flaus.

Like a very famous caterpillar, The Very Hungry Bum consumes quite a lot.  Over the course of a week it devours several pairs of underpants and other innocent objects, which were simply in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Then, after a gluttonous week and a particularly indulgent camping trip, it undergoes an incredible transformation.

The Very Hungry Bum is a new iBook for iPads, iPhones and iPod touches. It is a fun and cheeky parody of a classic children’s book that I’m sure you remember!

The Book is not dead, it’s just changing context. For The Book to be dead, we would have to no longer care about stories or understanding complex ideas that take more than 140 characters to convey. Books are more alive more than ever before. They don’t have to be linear. They don’t have to be bulky. Text and diagrams can move and be played with. Pictures can be zoomed or rotated in 3D. They can be personalised to the extent that if we downloaded the same book, your experience of it could be completely different from mine. They can also be updated in real time. We think of books as defined by their physical containers, but we’re the last generation that is going to think that way.
