Ratings and Reviews

Very clever use of story telling and interaction with the reader, who has to be part of this traditional story for it to unfold. I especially liked the scene where the reader has to help gather mice and pumpkins and so on for the fairy godmother. Wonderfully put together to make sure the reader is telling the story as much as the app is. Some great new effects that make this every bit as good as the Three Little Pigs, which I loved.

First rate

This is consummate programming and - believe it or not - even better than The Three Little Pigs, which was in a class of it's own earlier this year. My grandchildren will love it, but in the meantime I laughed out loud at the "change the ballroom music" facility and loved clearing the flowers/confetti off the invitation to the ball. And gathering the mice and pumpkin etc is an example of how far Nosy Crow has developed their techniques. You will not be disappointed.

Absolutely brilliant - thank you

I got the lite version of this app for my daughter and it wasn't long before she played on the full version. The way in which you can interact with the characters and by doing so add so much more to the story is pure genius - a great way to create a 'proper' ebook! I have yet to meet a child young or old who hasn't enjoyed this app. Thank you so much!
