The Ugly Duckling

1 May

A beautiful classic, retold in a hugely entertaining and interactive way in an iPad app for kids which allows them not only to listen and discuss, but also create. Worth a download and a try. The app is created by a Greek company Publisto, who are innovating the interactive book market for kids and we are told, the kids will also be able to get a role of the author by trying different endings for each story…

“I must discover the world!” the duckling says to its pursuers. “I just know one day I will see the whole world, as it truly is!”
