"Delightful" - The Sunday Times

“Quite possibly the best children’s story app out there right now." - The Independent

**********************************************************
Welcome to Little Red Riding Hood - What's YOUR version of the story?

Our Little Red Riding Hood app is a completely new take on the classic fairytale: for the first time ever, users can create their own story by choosing from multiple paths along the way, resulting in a new, fully-animated adventure with different endings every time.

Built with an innovative, user-generated narrative structure that immerses a child in the story, Little Red Riding Hood re-invents interactive storytelling. Readers play games to help Little Red Riding Hood collect three different objects in the course of her journey through the woods, choosing what items to gather at forks in the path. These objects determine how Little Red Riding Hood defeats the Big Bad Wolf and saves Grandma.

A revolutionary new form of non-linear narrative storytelling, with eight different routes through the tale – a sort of multimedia, animated 21st Century Choose-Your-Own-Adventure

Nine different games and activities embedded in the story

Innovative forms of interactivity: blow into the microphone to blow dandelions and a whistle; see yourself in a magical pool with the front-facing camera; tilt the screen to pour honey into a jar, and drag, swipe, tap and zoom to take part in the story and explore more of every scene

Rich and detailed artwork from the creator of Nosy Crow’s award-winning Cinderella and The Three Little Pigs apps

Fully animated: characters are constantly on the move

Hundreds of lines of dialogue for fifteen characters voiced by child actors

Hundreds of interactive touch-points

Original music by BAFTA award-winning composer, Robin Beanland

Text-highlighting to support emerging and early readers

Optimized for Retina Display and the iPhone 5.
