Dr. Seuss’s “The Lorax” iPad app released to celebrate Earth Day

The Lorax will be available for the iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch in 22 April with a retail of $3.99. Oceanhouse Media is also going to offer a related game, The Lorax Garden, for $2.99. From the press release:

The Lorax has been adapted for the first time to an interactive book format for the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. First published in 1971, it chronicles the plight of the environment and the Lorax, a mossy, bossy man-like creature who speaks for the trees, against the greedy, big-industry businessman, the Once-ler. The story recounts how the Lorax tries to save the Truffula Forest and its inhabitants from disaster at the hands of the insatiable factory owner. The Lorax’s pleas are ignored and tragedy follows. Hope for the future is restored in the next generation when the last Truffula seed is entrusted to a young boy. A Dr. Seuss classic, it also serves as an ecological warning that still rings true today.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader: "I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
