NILES, OH--(Marketwire - Nov 19, 2012) - Captain McFinn and Friends, the original, innovative and educational brand that was developed to teach young children about kindness, friendship and bully prevention, announces the expansion of the Captain McFinn and Friends world with the debut of a FREE interactive book app for Apple, Android, NOOK by Barnes and Noble and Amazon Kindle platforms. Additionally, iBook™ versions are available exclusively on the iBookstore™.
The Captain McFinn and Friends app allows children to dive into a "Finn-tastic" adventure with Captain McFinn and the Undersea Friends! Download the FREE app and enjoy a complete interactive version of the first story in the series, The Legend of Captain McFinn and Friends. McFinn, who was once one of the biggest bullies on the reef, learns that being a friend is always better than being a bully.

- A "Read-to-Me" feature for less advanced readers
- Two full-length Friend-Ship band songs incorporated into each interactive book
