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 great a 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.

"Oliver's Weirdwood Manor Adventure"
The day before yesterday it was too hot to play outdoors. I was bored. I spent time playing video games on my PlayStation. But that didn't help to cure my boredom. I picked up my IPad and decided to try to find some game app or app in the App Store that would catch my attention. After several minutes of searching through the various unappealing apps, I was getting frustrated. A few more minutes passed and I found "Weirdwood Manor". As I read the brief description, memories of playing games like it when I was younger than I am now flashed in my brain
Well, even though this one is meant for kids between the ages of 8 and 12, I gotta admit after finishing books one and two, I was no longer feeling bored! Looking forward to starting the next book very soon!
Amazing, and not just for kids.
I found myself absolutely CAPTIVATED by this story line and the branching story lines as well. The artistry and animation was beautifully done and I quite enjoyed it. Not only was it enticing I found that I didn't mind being read too either. The narration was done beautifully and each character had a full realization and actualization. Personally Dhor Man-Eater was my favorite closely followed by Felix the Burbitt. I wish there were 100 more apps like this to enjoy because this is the only app I haven't minded purchasing in a very long time. 2017 please come soon because I cannot wait to see the adventures these characters have in store and how the story continues to unfold before our eyes.
This is an awesome app for me & my boys to read together before bed. The story is captivating and the app works flawlessly. (iPh 6). It is wordy at times which can cause lulls of interest, and though the kids love finding 'hints' they are often annoying b/c they distract rather than further the current storyline, some are marginally insightful- most are tangential and laborious additional reading. Amazing graphics & transitions though!
Ps. Rewriting this review for a 3rd time as the 'nickname' turned out to be 'already taken' after submitting- had to restart... :( otherwise 4.75 stars.
