From the creators of "Nash Smasher,” the perfect interactive holiday storybook for the whole family!

When an 8-year-old boy can’t resist peeking at his Christmas gifts early, he unwraps a wacky holiday adventure! His toys aren’t ready to hatch and run amok throughout the house. Will he be able to catch and re-wrap his pre-presents in time for Christmas morning?

Carefully crafted for younger kids, this gorgeously designed app is filled with mini games, music to play, surprises galore, and a “read to me” option (only in English for now). The story teaches the power of patience—and will have your child humming, laughing, and reading along.

“Don’t Open Before Christmas” is written by children’s book writer Bill Doyle, bestselling author for Scholastic, Sesame Workshop, LeapFrog, and Random House. And it’s illustrated by Troy Cummings, author and illustrator with Random House, Cartoon Network, Leapfrog, Pearson Education, and Scholastic.

Creative direction by Rachel Ericson-Carmiggelt (Sesame Workshop, Conde Nast, Hearst, Sanoma, Van Gaal & Company).

Unwrap the gift of laughter, reading, and surprises with this new holiday tradition!
