PRLog - Feb. 11, 2014 - MILWAUKEE -- Little Bahalia Publishing, LLC is proud to announce the release of its new storybook app, "The Box & I," written by Sue Moring and illustrated by her son, illustration student Joshua Zelasko.

Author Sue Moring says, "When Josh and his brother were younger I would always tell them stories and let their imaginations run wild. The Box was a way to pay homage to all those stories I shared with them and they are what inspired this story to become what it is."

"The Box & I" was Zelasko’s project for one of his classes at the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design (MIAD), taught by adjunct faculty Stacey Williams, who is the founder and creative director at Little Bahalia Publishing. As a way of motivating the students, Williams offered a competition for the students who were producing children’s book apps using Demibooks® Composer: the winner of a juried competition would be published under her house label, in association with Demibooks.

Says Little Bahalia publisher Stacey Williams, “Josh’s work stood out from the others, in that it was expertly illustrated and the story itself was simple, but strong.”

Zelasko, 22 now but 21 at the time of the course project, was motivated to do a great job. “Illustration has always been a great interest of mine and Stacey's class offered me an opportunity to flesh out my illustration skills and jump feet first into an unknown territory. To be published is a great honor and will provide me with a great foundation for a future career in a creative field.”

The book, a funny rhyming story about a boy who finds the cardboard box more enticing than the toy that was inside of it, will first be published on iTunes in the app “Storytime” by Demibooks. By late February, it will be available as a stand-alone download in wide release on the iTunes App Store.
