A Scrumptious Preview to the Clever Interactive iBook 'No 'Wurst for Were' Now on YouTube

First in Planned Trilogy Is a Delicious Blend of Engaging Interactive Devices and a Palate- (and Parent-) Pleasing Story

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - March 08, 2016) -  Sinking it's fangs into young readers' imaginations, No 'Wurst for Were -- currently available on iTunes -- has a tasty preview of the animated and interactive iBook with original music on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XESX_0WlAHI

Book one in a debut series, this captivating tale describes a young boy's chance encounter with a werewolf -- and the hilarious mayhem that ensues -- through engaging interactive learning devices, fun rhymes, and state-of-the-art animation.

No 'Wurst for Were (www.nowurstforwere.com) includes two versions within the same book -- both of which feature vibrant graphics and take readers on a wild and zany excursion through the overactive imagination of nine-year-old Aaron Dorper.

"Feed Me" is an enhanced version that engages sight, sound, and touch with animated graphics, interactive controls, professional voice narration, sound design and interactive pop-up vocab cards.

"I Can Feed Myself, Thank You Very Much" is a standard version of the book with page swiping and vocab glossary.

The story recounts Aaron's harrowing encounter with a werewolf in his kitchen one evening. After devouring everything from lemon meringue pie, to buffalo wings, to crème brulee, and kidney bean soup, the werewolf is finally stopped by a unique twist on the ubiquitous silver bullet: bratwurst. Claiming to be the only R.A.T.P.E.E. (Regulative Association for Thwarting Paranormal Entities with Edibles)-certified werewolf-fighting bratwurst product on the market, its motto is, "A 'Wurst a day keeps the Were away."

No 'Wurst for Were is "written" by Sir Wilhelm Lexicon Withershins I.I.I, the nom de plume for Los Angeles-based illustrator and author, David Rose. Sir Wilhelm is an eccentric and scholarly man who purportedly dabbles in pickling, pondering the mysteries of the universe, and creating neo-impressionist snow art from his home in Potemkin, Alaska. This marks Sir Wilhelm's first foray into the world of children's books, but it certainly won't be his last.

Inspired by Kurt Vonnegut's Kilgore Trout and Theodor Geisel's Dr. Seuss, Rose had additional motivations for utilizing a pseudonym for his publishing debut. "Sir Wilhelm allows me to be bolder, zanier and larger than life," explains Rose. "He speaks in a very distinctive voice and uses complex words and expressions, which gives me a great opportunity to incorporate fun, interactive learning devices to build young readers' vocabularies and understandings of the world. Sir Wilhelm can reach kids in a special and engaging way that is different from anything else in the children's fiction arena today."

No 'Wurst for Were can be downloaded for $2.99 as an iBook in the children's fiction section on iTunes. It can be read with iBooks on a Mac or iOS device. For more information on the book, visit www.nowurstforwere.com.
