    From the creators of The Artifacts, Midnight Feast is a brand new, original picturebook of 44 pages created especially for the iPad.

    This is a story for a wide variety of ages, about a girl called Roya who is excited to stay up late for a midnight feast. For younger readers, the scariest features can be turned off in the options page.
    This story stands up well to close-reading, with notes and activities freely available online.
    Themes include: drought, its impact on food security, imagination and escapism.
