*** Over 50,000 downloads! Chosen by The Daily Mail as one of the Top 40 Apps of 2013! ***

Dandelion is a moving interactive App about bullying and the power of imagination. This magical interactive story came about when the author's son experienced bullying.

The story, in the spirit of Where the Wild Things Are, encourages parents and children to discuss bullying and discover whether imagination can diminish fear and build confidence. A storytelling experience unlike any other, allowing users to physically blow dandelions from the screen!

SELECTED BY APPLE FOR 'BEST OF 2012'!
** #1 App in Australian App Store for interactive Books!! **
10/10 review from AppStorm!

Note: 'Dandelion' is an original fable which transports the reader to a world where they are encouraged to use their imagination. (It is not presented as a solution to bullying as bullying takes many forms and there is no one solution). Benjamin's story is his own journey and is a work of fiction that we hope creates conversation.

DIGITAL EXCLUSIVE TO iOS! Compatible with iPhone, iPod and iPad. Gorgeous hand-crafted illustrations, unique composed soundtrack and a new creative world to explore!

Brilliant and Inspirational

Many kids don't have the physical strength to "fight back" or the language necessary to defend themselves verbally. What they do have, however, is the tremendous ability to embrace their personal and often unique talent(s)-- which gives them the inner courage to endure and protect themselves from the criticisms and cruelties of the "misguided" and unimaginative. Conformity, jealousy, refusing to "dare to be different," and bullying are for the weak of heart AND soul. Self-confidence stems from inner-strength, courage, bravado. Love-of-self fosters peace-towards-all.

A young student of mine, whom I engaged after her reading of this haunting tale, recognized herself immediately in Benjamin -- an outcast with incredible, creative talent. Her social skills are a deficit and her pragmatic language is poor though she takes great pride in her strengths and is one of the happiest and well-adjusted children I know. It bothers me to read that the publishers felt a need to post a "disclaimer" to potential purchasers a sweet and insightful tale and engaging App. Personally, I adore it!

Clearly an artistic approach but what's the message?

Dandelion is nothing if not an artistic, uniquely stylized story, however, after reading it to my second graders they (and I) were left wondering "What's the message here?". Clearly it's not a story about practically addressing bullying because the main character uses his imagination to deal with the bullies in the end. I tried to explain his imagination was a way to ignore them, but I could tell they weren't quite satisfied with that explanation.

There seem to be a trend right now of telling stories masquerading as children's books but cater to the educated parents a bit more. This story is one of them. Unfortunately, the message is unclear whether you're an adult or a child. In the end, they just liked that I could blow that dandelion.

Super Unique & Interactive!!

I love the story! "bullying is for people with no imagination!" brought to life on BOTH my iPhone and iPad, after a day of the real world I can sit down and blow some dandelions! Wonderful for kids of all ages! Read by yourself or enact storytelling mode. Worth every penny! Also, the chaps who created this ap/story truly have the intentions of modern day kids at heart, with inspiration close to home. Thanks for the ap.. The well told story .. Can't wait for the next project! 5stars!!!
