Welcome to Jack and the Beanstalk - Unlock the Story!

Our Jack and the Beanstalk app blurs the distinction between story and game more than ever before to create a completely new kind of reading experience for children: this is where on-screen gaming and reading meet.

Jack and the Beanstalk rewards success with more story, and encourages repeat play with endless variety. Play games in different rooms of the giant’s castle and collect keys to unlock more of the story - and capture the giant's treasure without waking him up to carry on playing!

Jack and the Beanstalk features:

An exciting, open environment to explore: find the right key to open nine different doors in the giant’s castle, each with unique games and characters behind them

Real consequence within the story: wake up the giant at different points in the narrative to create new ending

A totally non-linear narrative: work your way through the castle in a different order every time and experience different endings based on Jack’s progress through the castle

An emphasis on reading for pleasure that will be particularly good at encouraging reluctant boy readers who love on-screen gaming to participate in a reading experience

Innovative use of iOS device features: the app takes advantage of the fantastic potential of the front-facing camera, gyroscope, multi-touch screen, retina display and more

Ratings and Reviews

Another superb title

LozBlanko

I think this is the best of the Nosy Crow interactive books yet. There's lots of gameplay to progress the story if your child is old enough. My daughter is 5. If not, they can just press the next page button. This is the best interactive book I've seen so far on the iPad / iPhone including all the Disney ones and others. Highly recommended. (Nosy Crow's other titles : The Three Little Pigs, Cinderella and Little Red Riding Hood are also of very high quality but I think this one wins).

Just buy it.

If you're anything like me, you'll like a bargain. So you'll think twice about paying £2.99 for an app. Well, don't. So much thought and hard work went into this app that you WILL be getting that bargain.

Bottom line: Nosy Crow's Jack and the Beanstalk is a *brilliant* app for 4-7 year olds. The graphics are lovely, the interactivity is second to none (lots of rooms in the castle, great variety of games) and it's not a case of app vs book (the words are highlighted as they are read out, in a bid to entice young readers).

I'll definitely recommend this app to my friends. Heck, it's that good I'll recommend it to the school.

So just buy it. Best 3 quid you'll spend.

This interactive book is fun, user friendly and will appeal to all ages. It is a perfect blend of reading and technology which will challenge readers to think about the story without taking away any of the enjoyment of reading. I only wish I could see it on my MacAir instead of just on my phone (I don't own an iPad).
