@ ToysBulletin: This is not your typical e-book, in fact, it is a beautifully illustrated and interactive presentation of a truly engaging story that surprised the entire staff.
@ SmartAppsForKids: Snow Queen is priced $4.99 but the amount of content, the illustrations, the beautiful music and effects absolutely justifies the price. It is without a doubt, my favourite Christmas app.
@ Kirkus: Sumptuously illustrated and enriched with some clever effects, this slightly dark tale should engage lovers of fairy tales as well as those looking for a good story.
@ CrazyMikesApps: This Kids' iPad app is one of the most masterfully crafted interactive books I've ever come across.

So good I wrote 2 reviews
This was my FB post "Snow Queen by Timecode you Have to buy this if you have kids or not, it's so interactive and pretty, it's really amazing this is possible... You can brush the boys hair from his face, see yourself in an ugly mirror, there's no telling what's going to happen, I keep touching every part of the screen, and the story is a bit dark so far, I'm just past the first chapter, and the voice that reads to you is so soothing and there's music in the background.... You're just completely immersed and captured and intrigued by all your senses!"
After seeing Frozen with the kids, I'm so happy to have found this app. It's perfect for our 5 year old at bedtime. The Disney movie is loosely based on this story but we know how the movies always turn out opposed to how the story was really told. She enjoys having the story read to her and the the fun interactive pages. The music is every bit as beautiful as the illustrations. It's a chapter book, and she barely made it through the first without falling asleep. The narrator has a very soothing voice.
The gift of the tablet, realized
This app is more than just a book, more than a game, it's both and a work of art also. As an artist, I recognize the illustration talent that went into the graphic portion of the the story. But then the storytellers went even further, and created a story within a story, a game within a game. This is the gift of the the interactive tablet, realized.
