About Puddle Tap
Art to inspire imagination
What We Do
At PuddleTap Publishing we believe that stories add sparkle to kids’ lives. That’s why we make awesome electronic books and interactive experiences that inspire children’s imaginations and enhance learning.
We strive for every book that we create to be a work of art: a rich visual and sound experience. Our artists, writers, voice talents and technology experts are (in our sincere opinion) the cream of the crop.
Our hope is to inspire curiosity and open kids up to the wild possibilities of their own imaginations. We aim to help families use mobile technology (like iPads) to make story time enchanting and educational.

Since then, he has started pushing the boundaries, leading top professional motion graphics artists, illustrators, video crews, animators, editors and developers to bring his visions to life. His background in film, eye for detail and fascination with typography, navigation architecture and design allows him to deliver rich and engaging content.
