“… a fun and engaging story.”
Grab your cape and join the fun! Aiden is just an ordinary kid—loves costume play, watching clouds pass by, seeing castles in the sky… and he doesn’t like vegetables.
In “The Prisoner of Carrot Castle” Aiden’s imagination transports him to a far away place where he finds himself a prisoner in a cell made of carrots. What will he do? Must he face the angry King? Will his hate for vegetables get him in trouble? Come along and help Aiden as he tries to escape from Carrot Castle.
When Aiden gets stuck, kids play a role in helping him move ahead in his adventure. The story comes alive as the text is read. Find silly animations and sound effects as the action unfolds.
Through creative storytelling, kids learn that eating vegetables is good—it can actually help them.
Narrated by the author, Chris Pedersen, this interactive book for the iPad includes reader involvement in moving the story forward (tapping, sliding, tilting), animation, sound effects, stunning illustrations, music and games.
The "Prisoner of Carrot Castle" is an original story written and illustrated for the iPad. Targeted for kids 3 to 8-years-old, the story’s interaction and games help them develop fine motor skills.

Engaging and beautifully illustrated
A lovely story about a young boy's daydreams - which turn out to help him in more ways than one. Kids will love the illustrations and there is fun animation, but not so much as to be distracting.
A delightful app
A delightful app for young readers that will hold their attention. It highlights a novel way to introduce vegetables in a fun fashion. It's beautifully narrated with many opportunities for discussion.
Pretty pictures but pretty dull
Wistful and charming illustrations, but the story didn't capture the imagination of my 4 year old. I wouldn't recommend it.
