It’s so exciting to think of what kind of storytelling can be done with amazing tools like this!

Speaking of doodles – do you know Sago Sago’s app for kids, Doodlecast? It’s brilliant (as are all Sago apps). Kids are inspired to draw from prompts or freedrawing, and the app records each stroke of their finger to show them an animation – complete with sound – when they are finished.

See Piccadilly editor Matilda Johnson’s artistry, as she discovers the app (and giggles):

To keep with with our doodling theme, here is a sneak peek at the cover development and inside spreads of THE FINNCREDIBLE DIARY by Ciaran Murtagh and illustrated by Tim Wesson!
