Reviews for Galdo's Gift - The Boovie


"Galdo’s Gift brings children’s literature into the 21st Century by using digital features which really enhance the experience for the reader. There is nothing gimmicky about this ebook – it genuinely creates a more engaging and interactive experience...  All I will say is that it is one heck of an adventure that really engages any reader, and one that I enjoyed as much as my son!"

About the Creators







Hi there, we are Eleanor Long and Trevor Young

and together we created Tapocketa, a small indie animation studio.

Galdo's Gift is our first Boovie® and it's been a real labour of love.  Here's a little bit of our story...

Eleanor: My background is in sculpture, in particular big architectural pieces, some of which grace the exteriors of buildings in Regent Street and the Royal Geographic Society in London, UK.  I graduated from the Royal College of Art and I've worked in model making and set building for feature films and TV.  I make the sets and environments for our animations/illustrations.

Trevor: And my background is in visual effects for feature films where I worked for over 15 years occasionally leading teams on films such as the Harry Potter movies.  My big love is illustration, in particular character work, which is my contribution to our creations.

We both love books (yes we do love print books -we hope to create those too) and storytelling and we would love you to follow more of our story and creations on our YouTube channel.  See you there! :-)


Here we are at Barnes Kid's Literature Festival 2017...
