The Trojan War is an interactive book designed for children between ages 4 and 12. It tells a mythical story through a series of playful animations. The Story can be told either in English or French.
The illustrations of the interactive book are based to a large extent on those found on antique Greek vases. This app is a good way to introduce children to the ancient Greek art with its refined aesthetic in an informal and fun manner.
The Trojan War
It opposes the Greeks and the Trojans. This epic story has been told for centuries. It has many different versions and twists. The Iliad is the most famous, written by Homer. Our version is obviously very simplified. In particular, it focusses on the involvement of the Gods in the conflict.
Greek Vases ? Why bother ?
The Greek vases have strong historical significance ; they have played a major role in the conception of modern museums. For example, it can be argued that their acquisition in the XVIIIth century started the transformation of the British Museum from a historical archive of books and manuscripts, into a great museum of art.
The vases’s illustrations have also played a major role in artistic creation, being a source of inspiration for many artists to this day.

Simple and beautiful Trojan War story for kids
An interactive story telling experience for kids, the app is simple letting the reader touch the vases to discover the storyline and learn about the various characters.
The graphic design is pure. The vases support the design of the storyboard nicely - this is how the original storyteller wanted us to discover it.
Connecting the Dots
How often have you gone to a Museum and "seen" the art, but left feeling that somehow you missed the "story" whispered?
Using beautifully illustrated ancient Greek Vases, the app connects the dots for young, and old, museum visitors alike. Telling the story of "The Trojan War" in a delightful and refreshingly quirky way.
Cool and different
Very nice app with a unique approach to entertain and educate kids. Top quality
