The Story Mouse - Read-along story books for children

By The Story Mouse

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Welcome to The Story Mouse, a top-quality collection of virtual books for children.

Do you remember all those wonderful stories we grew up with? Now they're here, retold with bags of character for your iPad, iPhone or iPod touch. But the tale is only half the story! All our titles come with bright, colourful illustrations to complete the listening and reading experience, with lots of fun along the way.

• Stories from The Story Mouse are presented as virtual books.
Our professional presenter reads the story aloud as the text appears.
On the iPad, each page has an illustration on the left, with the text on the right. On the iPhone and iPod touch, the illustrations are displayed full screen when you hold the device vertically. Turn the device horizontally to display the text.
Sentences are highlighted as the story progresses, making the words easy to follow.

• Tales from The Story Mouse are perfect for bedtime listening or on a long journey. Not only that, but there is a "read it myself" mode too which turns the voice off. Young readers can then use the app as a regular book to advance the story at their own pace. All our stories are a pure listening experience for younger children, as well as a read-along experience for those who are learning to read.

• Best of all, The Story Mouse comes with free stories! You can safely purchase more titles in the collection using your iTunes account.
You can sample the first few pages of each title completely free of charge and once you have purchased a story, it can be retrieved on all devices associated with your iTunes account.

We aim to provide first class customer service with fast responses to questions. You'll find the answers to most questions on our website but if you want to ask us something please email and we'll get back to you as soon as we can.

We always welcome feedback, comments and suggestions. Drop us a line any time:
If you like The Story Mouse we'd love it if you could rate it and leave a review too!
