What critics are saying:

• The Babble 50 - Best Apps for Kids - 2011

• Gold Medal - Mom's Choice Awards

• "I think The Penelope Rose is a must have children’s book, especially for kids that love fairytale style stories with fun creatures and lots of interaction. I’ve seen a lot of children’s books, but none with graphics quite this impressive." - PadGadget

• "Mobad Games really thought of everything and implemented it brilliantly. Every one of the pages in this book is full of wonder, enchantment and breathtaking special effects. This book makes me want to have a scale that goes above 5-Stars. I give it my highest recommendation!" - Digital Storytime

• "We have a lot of apps and this is BY FAR the best storybook app we have seen. Both of my children enjoyed it very much!" - Homegrown Learners

• "If you are looking for something fresh to engage young children with digital reading, The Penelope Rose is an ideal choice. Every detail is tailored to create an immersive, delightful experience your child will want to relive over and over." - AppAdvice

• "We had so much fun exploring the book together. Hunter was excited to show the book to Daddy when he got home, and Cory was duly impressed as well with the quality." - Being Alison

• "This is a stunning app. There are just so many things to touch, move, animate and interact with, that it’s hard to believe they somehow crammed them all in! It’s actually pretty amazing and my kids were wowed by it." - The iPad Fan

• "Penelope Rose is certainly a wonder to behold. The breathtaking imagery is what truly makes the story stand out. All of the interactive features are simply icing on the cake." - Toronto Teacher Mom

• "My son and I really enjoy this story; it is creative and lovely. The illustrations are beautiful and rival those found in the most wonderfully drawn traditional story books." - GiggleApps

• "Latest and greatest e-books for kids - This decidedly girl-centric title has a gimmick of its own: 3D artwork that doesn't require special glasses. Instead, you just tilt the iPhone back and forth, which creates a very cool illusion of 3D." - CNET's Rick Broida

• "It’s something you have to see for yourself… the scenery has such depth, it looks like you could reach your hand into your iPhone. As much as I enjoyed looking at The Penelope Rose, I liked the story itself even more." - The Greasy Screen

• "This beautifully illustrated and lovingly crafted adventure will likely keep younger children enthralled for quite some time. Every one of the eye-popping pages is a sight to behold." - iPad Creative

• "The 3D feature really works and screenshots don’t come close to capturing the sharpness of the images." - The iPhone Mom

Showing this to my niece earned me "Favorite Uncle" :)

5/5 stars

Everyone with a young child should own this!

Fairies, butterflies, and roses; all elements of a good children's story. The Penelope Rose is a very creative and original modern day interpretation of previous pop-up books. It is a revolutionary and interactive form of story-telling that will advance static stories into interactive adventures.
