Download The Beatles’ Yellow Submarine as a Free, Interactive eBook

A year ago, Apple began sell­ing The Bea­t­les’ cat­a­logue of music on iTunes. Now, twelve months and many mil­lions of down­loads lat­er, Apple is giv­ing away The Beat­le’s Yel­low Sub­ma­rine as a free ebook.

It’s not just any ebook. Based on the 1968 film, this ebook fea­tures ani­mat­ed illus­tra­tions, 14 video clips from the orig­i­nal film, audio func­tion­al­i­ty that mag­i­cal­ly turns the book into an audio book, and var­i­ous inter­ac­tive ele­ments. You can “read” the book (down­load it here) on any iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch. Our apolo­gies in advance if you use oth­er devices.

The Yel­low Sub­ma­rine will be added to our col­lec­tion of Free eBooks, which fea­tures 250 clas­sics, includ­ing texts by Isaac Asi­mov, Philip K. Dick, Dos­to­evsky, Kaf­ka, Joyce, Nabokov, Austen, Niet­zsche and oth­ers. Also don’t miss our equal­ly large col­lec­tion of Free Audio Books.

    I down­loaded this book sev­er­al years ago but it is no longer func­tion­al and does not appear to be avail­able in the US. Is there any way to get this eBook again?

  • Charlotte Williams says:

    I have the same ques­tion. My grand­sons love this ebook, but it has lost some func­tion­al­i­ty. I would glad­ly pay for a copy, if I could find it.

  • Scott says:

    I had this on my old iPad and when I upgrad­ed to a new iPad Air 2 it is no longer in my pur­chased apps. My boys keep ask­ing for it. Where is this app? I would hap­pi­ly pay for a copy so that my boys can con­tin­ue their appre­ci­a­tion for the Bea­t­les.
