01.11.12 | Joshua Farrington
HarperCollins is releasing 50 of its most successful picture books for tablets for the first time.
Books including Michael Bond's Paddington Bear and Judith Kerr's The Tiger Who Came to Tea will now be available on the Kindle Fire, Nook, and through iBooks.
Tom Conway, digital publishing manager, said: "These new digital picture books look fantastic on tablets and phone, and are a great new way for children to read and enjoy an entire library of their favourite stories, whether at home or on the move."
Other new releases include books from One Direction and Hello Kitty, and illustrator Oliver Jeffers.
Titles on iBooks and Nook will feature read-along audio narration from readers such as Stephen Fry, Jarvis Cocker, and David Walliams.
All the titles will be priced at £3.99.
