Published in 1902, 250 million copies of The Tale of Peter Rabbit have been sold worldwide making Beatrix Potter’s timeless story one of the most famous children’s books of all time. More than a hundred years after it was first published, this classic tale of a mischievous rabbit stealing vegetables from Mr. McGregor’s garden has been digitally re-imagined by publishers Frederick Warne & Co for the iPad, iTouch and iPhone. Featuring the original text and illustrations, the pages are beautifully enhanced with pictures that come to life, realistic sound effects and a ‘read to me’ option as well as a narration by Rosemary Leach and music composed Carl Davis. The amazing surround sound is best appreciated through the use of headphones.
In addition to the tale itself, this app opens up Peter Rabbit’s world for users to explore with 3-D scenes of his burrow, Mr. McGregor’s toolshed, the vegetable garden and the wood. Each scene features a game and a hidden extra (such as letters from Peter Rabbit to Mr. McGregor enquiring after his cabbages!).
What's New in Version 1.0.1
Shorter initial loading time.
No problems so far
We've been using this app for a week now & it's been absolutely fine. I read that others find it doesn't load properly after a while but as I say, we've had no problems so far & I hope we don't as my son loves it! & I love how this classic story has been sensitively adapted to the digital age & so kept its integrity
I don't pay for apps very often, and I am very glad I paid for this one. Wonderfully set up and yes, it takes a moment or two to load but worth it. My two yr old and I love this app. Looking forward to a Jemima Puddleduck one maybe?? Hint, hint.
My son loves this app!
Great new app that has loads of games as well as a lovely animated version of the Peter Rabbit story. Have only tried it on my Iphone so far but seems great value - kept my 3 year old son amused for ages while waiting at the docs yesterday!
