Saint Nick and the Space Nicks
Saint Nick and the Space Nicks HD Storybook app was created by Emmy and Peabody Award winning artist, Bill Westerfield for Stubborn Pixel and now is available for iPad and Kindle Fire HD.
Space Nicks is a hypothetical collaboration between Clement Clark Moore’s ‘The Night before Christmas’ and Dr. Seuss! With Richard Chase Mears smart and snappy writing and Bill’s whimsically detailed illustrations, they have created a wonderful new spin to the traditional Christmas story. And to top it off, Space Nicks is narrated by the celebrated Robert Krulwich.
Space Nicks tells the story of how St. Nick meets Venick from Venus. Venick is a strange purple creature with long purple hair and is dressed like St. Nick. Venick tells Santa that while delivering his own toys on Venus he tripped on a star and tumbled near to afar, ending up lost here on earth. Fearing he will not be able to complete his task, he asks for help.
Follow St. Nick and Venick as they travel through space and meet all the Space Nicks! It’s an adventure you won’t forget and reminds you whenever you’re lost, look to the sky, to the heavens above, there are billions of stars that sparkle with love!
