App Description

Featured in iTunes WHAT'S HOT and based on the best-selling book. The Smelly Sprout is the touching and funny story remastered in razor sharp retina graphics. Sure to be a favourite at bedtime but a must have if you have an iPhone 4 or the new iPod Touch.

Thrown out into the snow on Christmas day, the Smelly Sprout comes up against a terribly rude Christmas tree, an awfully impolite snowman and, worst of all . a greedy fox. But will a chance encounter with someone as small as the sprout change everything? With deliciously witty illustrations and a story to touch the heart, this charming tale is loved by children and parents alike. And one thing's for sure, love them or loathe them, you'll never look at a sprout in the same way again!

Why not sample the book for free. The LITE version has the first half of the book so you can try before you buy!

Here's what review sites are saying about The Smelly Sprout.


Top ten apps you gotta have

rating: 5 stars

With gorgeous illustration this is a great little book which my kids reads over and over again, laughing loose at every time. What makes a great book great is hard to tell, but this one certainly has got it!



grade A

There is honestly no room for improvement in this pitch perfect app.  I just wish there were ten more books in the iTunes store just like it.

An absolutely wonderful holiday tale, and well worth the price.



Over 40 beautifully illustrated pages so there's lots to look at and read in this app and it's perfect in time for the holidays.


"For an offbeat seasonal story, beautifully drawn and full of sly humour, The Smelly Sprout by Allan Plenderleith is warmly recommended. It is a charming picture book about a neurotic, self-centred sprout that simply can't understand why nobody likes it." Max Davidson, The Telegraph UK

Exclusive app features:

-Beautiful, illustrations taken directly from the book!

-US and international English spelling!

-43 animated pages!
