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!

This Lite version has the first half of the book for you to sample.

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.
