From the creators of The Artifacts, Midnight Feast is a brand new, original picturebook of 44 pages created especially for the iPad.

This is a story for a wide variety of ages, about a girl called Roya who is excited to stay up late for a midnight feast. For younger readers, the scariest features can be turned off in the options page.
This story stands up well to close-reading, with notes and activities freely available online.
Themes include: drought, its impact on food security, imagination and escapism.

READ *MIDNIGHT FEAST* AND EXPLORE ROYA’S WORLD:

Any interactivity in Midnight Feast either moves the story forward, or it exists to create atmosphere or humour.
• Tap the screen to activate character dialogue
• Lots of rub-to-reveal scenes, to expose Roya’s imaginary alternative life
• Randomly generate strange recipes in “Dad’s Kitchen”, or movie titles in Roya’s home theatre
• Manipulate light effects

We believe young readers deserve immersive, non-commercialised reading experiences even in the digital age, so we will never advertise new products from our main menu or from within the story. A web link to our other storybook app is accessible only from the options page. Links to teaching resources (on Slap Happy Larry’s website) appear on a separate page after the conclusion of the story. Midnight Feast does not glorify or promote highly processed junk food.
