Our story follows the adventures of three children who, while all misfits, each have special talents. Talents they can’t quite control yet…

* Oliver is an orphan who loves to draw
* Celia is a confident and gifted writer
* Eugene is a sci-fi nerd who loves making gadgets

The children win a trip to Weirdwood Manor to meet their reclusive hero — the eccentric writer and inventor, Arthur Weirdwood. Naturally, there’s also a robot butler, a ghost boy who haunts the Manor, and a librarian with more than a couple secrets of her own to hide.

Full of mystery and adventure, our story aims to inspire children to celebrate their uniqueness, recognize their talents, and embrace their imagination.

“The Incredible Tales of Weirdwood Manor” was born out of 5 complementary objectives:

* Tell a great story
* Foster a love of reading
* Promote playful interaction
* Challenge the mind
* Inspire creativity

But most of all, we wanted to bring ‘play’ to storytelling.

What a treat!

Updated. You stated in one of your responses to another reviewer in Jan of 2018 that you guys were in production of Vol 2 and it would be out by Summer.... it’s now winter and almost 2019..... Where is Oliver and the gang? 🤔 We MUST HAVE MORE. ASAP. 😊😉
Please make another one of these fantastic adventure books! There aren’t many of these and myself and my 10 yr old son were blown away by this. Please make another one.!

*For those of you complaining that it's not completely free, please tell me what in this work IS free? They gave you the first 2 entire books for free, what more do you want? The development team as well as writers and whomever else is involved with making these,and other apps have to make money to put out games like this that you like. You can't have it both ways. Your knocking off stars because of YOUR faults not theirs! Don't take stars away bc you wanted something for free and didn't get it. I'm so sick of people doing that. Your reviewing the book,the art, voiceovers, crashes if any etc! C'mon already. Nothing is free in this world and the saying goes "You get what you paid for!" ) There is TONS to do, yes there's stuff that distracts you but that's all part of the book. There's a lot of extras... You guys that are witching about too much stuff so you can't focus on the book, go read a book that's not interactive because obviously this isn't for you. Don't knock a great book and please stop comparing it to other books like Harry Porter. This book is in its own category and you can tell, took a lot of work! Yes the games in book 6 were terrible, I didn't like them either,but I'm not knocking a star off because I didn't like them. That's my personal opinion. Nothing wrong with the game itself.
🌟🌟Without a doubt a 5+🌟 adventure🌟🌟
I was scrolling through books and came across this delightful book. I have never seen such beauty,the artwork,all the details in this wonderful book. I will suggest you buy them all and make sure your paying attention to details all around you. There is SO much to do in this series. Challenge yourself to see if you can find all the hidden items through out each book. I have been looking for a book just like this, very interactive,very Upscaled and intriguing. It says for kids 9-11 and I agree. There are some graphic drawings in this book that may give little ones nightmares. I applaud the Developer team. Please make another one of these books. Maybe to find out what the kids are doing now, after WierdWood manor. Beautiful through and through. Buy the entire pack of books within the app.... It's worth every penny. I'll be going through the book again since I missed a few things here and the. This book kept calling my name every time I had free time. Thank you for such a wonderful adventure! Highly recommend!
