You are looking for an iPad storybook that is engaging enough for older children also (8+)? You just found it... this Frog King will make your children croak with laughter!

App Preview on YouTube:

Enjoy Grimm's Frog King both in the traditional version of the Grimm's folktale as well as in a version that is... well, not so traditional. Narrated by professional young voice actors this version will make you and your children croak with laughter!

The app includes magical illustrations by Vivianne Dommann, ambient music and many interactive elements. Touch the people (and amphibians!) on the screen to hear hidden sounds and keep an eye out for items that appear to be sprinkled with fairy dust...

Explore the Extras section which includes jokes, facts about frogs and toads, two games and a quiz. Make sure you read both versions of the story and the frog and toad facts before you try the quiz because if you answer all the questions correctly you will get a little reward!

The fairy tales collected and transcribed by the Brothers Grimm have been enjoyed by generations of children. As parents, we know how it feels to want to share with our kids the stories that entertained us as children, but these same stories often include elements that offend our modern sensibilities. Well, with The Frog King, you can enjoy the best of both worlds. Our app includes both the traditional version of the Grimm's folktale and a version that is... well, not so traditional!

With the traditional version of the story, your children can immerse themselves in the enchanted world of fairy tales. In addition, they will be learning timeless lessons such as: don't make judgements based solely on appearances and promises should neither be made lightly nor broken.

The second version of the story points out the many things about tales from a bygone era that seem very alien to us, but in a way that will have both you and your child giggling. Read right to the end of the story to see pages from a very unusual family photo album! This story version is best suited for children 8+ and for adults!

Both versions of the story can either be read by you or your child or you can relax and listen to the versions narrated by professional voice actors.
