A gift to the great god Hermes!


This is an incredibly cute and easy way to present the birth of the great god Hermes. Wish there was even more to this app.

These stories are amazing!


They are a perfect mix of retro and modern. It's where the new meets old, satisfying both the parent and the kid. Beautiful old story with wonderful art. Get one of these and give yourself some time to relax while your kids listen and read.

Beautiful storytelling


Have always been a fan of mythological stories. Now I'm able to share this beautifully drawn story with my daughter who also likes myths. Nice pacing, nice animation. Looking forward to finding others in the same vein.
