The Three Little Pigs-Nosy Crow interactive storybook ($3.99) by Nosy Crow Is a fantastic new entry into the kid-lit genre for iPad, and now for the iPhone too.
This adorable interactive storybook for children comes from a new name, but an familiar and trusted source. Former U.K. Scholastic Books executives have teamed up to create a new independent children’s book company called Nosy Crow.
The Three Little Pigs – Nosy Crow interactive storybook may seem a tad pricey at $7.99 for iPad and $3.99 for iPhone, but:
a) It is still cheaper than most children’s book store offerings.
b) this is one heck of an interactive book.
There is a lite version to try before you buy too, but that version is for iPad only.
This widely acclaimed iPad book, which just launched for iPhone creates an immersive reading experience that is never the same twice.
Little readers can watch funny piggies plot, build, chat and scurry their way through this classic tale.
The app is very tactile. Touching the characters makes them speak. Each character is programmed to say several funny lines on each page. Tapping also triggers various funny animations.
This app is part book part interactive video, and all fun.

And, since it’s from folks who have brought you Scholastic’s educational books for years, you know the content is beyond reproach.
This version of the story is cute, clever and a pleasure to read. Nosy Crow manages to pack this app full of features, without losing fabulous content.
The Three Little Pigs – Nosy Crow interactive storybook is one of the most compelling kid-lit offerings in the App Store. It even appeals to older kids; it’s hard not to want to touch everything, regardless of the user’s age.
If you have a young reader and you want a unique and wonderful reading experience I urge you to check this out. Your kids will thank you for a book that will keep them coming back for more.
