Who doesn’t know the story of Puss in Boots by Charles Perrault? “Chabadabada” is a modern and humorous take on the classic children’s tale.
Chabadabada is the story of a penniless musician who when his father passes away, inherits nothing but a pussycat! We all know the story…! But, did you know that the puss in this story wears red leather rock star boots, plays the guitar and writes songs for his master who dreams of fame and fortune? An international singing contest puts both our friends in the spotlight. In front of an electric crowd, the pussycat sings a beautiful song that his master, suffering from stage fright, couldn’t pluck up the courage to sing himself. Lady Leroy, the daughter of the famous music producer Eddie Leroy, is won over by the song. To find out what happens next, you’ll have to read the story…or the tabloids that have surely written all about it!
Some reasons that will make you love this new interactive tale:
- The story, inspired by the classic tale, is original and quirky.
- Animated illustrations with music fit for a nightclub.

A good story for children
What I like about the app Chabadabada is that the app is extremely humorous and plays out a modern tale to an older story making it applicable to children in today’s world. The navigation is simple; all you do if press an arrow to continue to read the story so even early learners can flip the pages of the book. I loved all the little hidden animations that you had to click around the page for. It made each page more engaging to the child. They wanted to discover what is going on, what they saw on this page and what it meant, which overall are critical thinking skills, which is what we promote in education.
The music and vivid images left a feeling of happiness around the room as the story was playing. I love that through the story you could sense yourself there with the characters. Also, the nightclub gave an aspect of something that younger children can hear music at and that parents and educators can relate it. I think the app good does its job at making reading enjoyable. I hope you would consider expanding further. Overall, I feel that it is a great book with a wonderful moral story.
This is a very original take on the classic tale of "Puss in Boots". The hidden animations are very engaging, and my four-year-old was enthralled with finding out what was new on each page. I think that this app is maybe better for ages four and up, since the storyline is a bit long and advanced for the younger ones, in my personal opinion. I do think that elementary school-aged children would find it very humorous.
The adaptation of this classic children's fairytale has a lot of charm. My kids enjoyed the notion of a cat who helps his master become a pop star (although the concept of a nightclub was beyond them, and I had to explain what a song producer is -- not a problem). I also like the fact that they were able to listen to the story again, in French. We all enjoyed the "interaction" on a number of pages, and I felt that my children would have appreciated even more of that.
