Enjoy the wonderful world of Wallace and Gromit with a series of great book apps on Apple devices. Wallace and Gromit are the main characters in a series consisting of four British animated short films and a feature-length film by Nick Park of Aardman Animations. All the characters are made from plasticine modeling clay on metal armatures, and filmed with stop motion clay animation. Wallace, an absent-minded inventor living in Wigan, Lancashire, is a cheese enthusiast (especially for Wensleydale). His companion, Gromit, is an anthropomorphic intelligent dog.
Veteran actor Peter Sallis voices Wallace; Gromit remains silent, communicating only through facial expressions and body language. Because of their endearing personalities and their widespread popularity, the characters have been described as positive international icons of modern British culture in particular and of the British people in general. BBC News has called them “some of the best-known and best-loved stars to come out of the UK”. The short films The Wrong Trousers and A Close Shave and the full-length feature The Curse of the Were-Rabbit received Academy Awards. The first short film A Grand Day Out was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film, but lost to Creature Comforts, another animated creation of Nick Park, and the most recent short film. We thought it would be a good idea to let the public know about some great Wallace and Gromit apps compatible with iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.
