Wyvern Digital, a relatively new name in the world of enhanced ebooks (Apps) for the iPad have come up with a rather enchanting enhanced ebook for us to enjoy entitled Penelope. Published under the aegis of their publishing arm, Addison’s Tales this is a action packed tale of a long journey, featuring Gnomes and other creatures. I shan’t discuss the actual story, as I don’t want to spoil it for you, but will just say that it is great fun.
However, here is how Wyvern themselves describe this story, gives a fair idea I think without giving too much away:
What would you do if you were a gnome and the fallen stars that normally light your Underworld were all dying? You wouldn’t send for a curious cat, a terrified and portly squirrel, or a sketchy gnome that you’d already banished from your homeland … would you?
No, probably not. Unfortunately for the gnomes of Epsilon Falls, that’s exactly who comes down from the Overlands claiming to hold the key to save all the Underworld from darkness. Can the unlikely heroes be trusted? Or should they be thrown to the subterranean river that’s forever swarming with pirates and monsters?
