NEW UK-based publishing company, Bambino Media, has launched a series of eBooks based on its first pre-school entertainment brand, ‘Splash the Lifeboat’, by author and illustrator, D.H. Wallace.
‘Splash the Lifeboat’ eBooks are available in picture book and story book formats for Kindle, Kindle Fire, and Apple iPad format, aimed at parents or guardians with pre-school listeners to amuse. There are currently three picture books and two story books.
You guessed it, these bite-sized eBooks contain lots of cute boats and cuddly friends. The action takes place in and around Baggywinkle Bay, a small fishing village with a lively fictional harbour, where Splash the lifeboat, Ebb the baby tug, and Flo the jetski all live, work, and play together. In the course of each story, Ebb and Flo often get into trouble with Splash frequently saving the day, usually with the help of Swoop the helly-chopper or another helpful character.
Says Wallace: “I’m really delighted that the first five books in the series have been published, and I hope that children will enjoy listening to these short and simple stories.”
He adds: “While I focus on creating entertaining stories and pictures, many of the stories include simple water safety or basic social responsibility messages.”
Andrea Stevenson, Head of publishing at Bambino Media said: “Just like ‘Chuggington’, ‘Splash the Lifeboat’ builds on traditional children’s vehicle-based kid’s stories such as ‘Thomas the Tank Engine’, ‘Trumpton’, and ‘Bob the Builder’.”
