In the iPad book, (now available on the App Store) “The Prisoner of Carrot Castle,” Aiden learns that eating vegetables will not only free him from captivity but also make him healthier.
This fanciful, interactive children’s story published by Purple Carrot Books, (purplecarrotbooks.com), has Aiden locked in the castle tower when he wouldn’t eat his vegetables. Only healthy food choices will free him.
Using a bit of reverse psychology and subliminal learning, author Chris Pedersen, 23-year resident of El Dorado Hills, is combating childhood obesity while entertaining children around the world with this whimsical tale available on the App Store for $2.99 (itunes.apple.com/us/app/the-prisoner-of-carrot-castle/id499981407?ls=1&mt=8).
“‘The Prisoner of Carrot Castle’ is a tale of adventure that kids will love and identify with and they’ll learn that eating vegetables can help them out,” said Pedersen.
A survivor of colon cancer, Pedersen is also the author of HealthyJourneyCafe.com, a site dedicated to healthy and mindful eating.
“The Prisoner of Carrot Castle’ includes fun animation, reader interaction, silly sound effects, stunning illustrations and creative games.
Readers can select narration or read the story themselves. Watch the book trailer and view sample screen shots at PurpleCarrotBooks.com.
