App Description

Interactive fairy tale: narrated by the talented voice artist, 300 interactive objects, 7 games – word game, coloring book, jigsaw puzzles, hidden objects, and more

@ ToysBulletin: This is not your typical e-book, in fact, it is a beautifully illustrated and interactive presentation of a truly engaging story that surprised the entire staff.

@ SmartAppsForKids: Snow Queen is priced $4.99 but the amount of content, the illustrations, the beautiful music and effects absolutely justifies the price. It is without a doubt, my favourite Christmas app.

@ Kirkus: Sumptuously illustrated and enriched with some clever effects, this slightly dark tale should engage lovers of fairy tales as well as those looking for a good story.

@ CrazyMikesApps: This Kids' iPad app is one of the most masterfully crafted interactive books I've ever come across.
