Named one of the "Top Apps of the Year"

The London Times


"The app's most breathtaking component is the lavish artwork hand-painted by Tanaka. Her exquisite use of color and light coupled with her distinctive interpretations of the characters provides a luxuriant feast for the eyes."

Kirkus Reviews, World's Toughest Book Critics


"Visually stunning and the glorious music is seamlessly integrated with the images. This app is a wonderful introduction to Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker for any age."

Charles Barker, Principal Conductor, American Ballet Theatre


"Check out the amazing illustrations (really, they will blow your mind)…"

Babble.com


"5/5 Apples. It's an utterly enchanting introduction to a core ballet for music appreciation. Whether you use this app to form a peg that you can later build on with a viewing of the full ballet, or you use it alone, it is really a magical experience that your children will ask to enjoy with you time after time."

AppsForHomeschooling.com


"It's a stunning introduction to the story and music of The Nutcracker that can be enjoyed by people of all ages."

iHeartThisApp.com


"… a gorgeous presentation of the Nutcracker story with lots of animated elements and some light interactivity."

Digital-Storytime.com


"A spectacular eye candy and a good introduction for children to the story and music of the Nutcracker Ballet."

BestInteractiveBooks.com


"I've got to tell listeners about this. It is a terrific app. It's just really beautiful. It's like watching the ballet on your own schedule."

Rich Capparela, Senior Producer & Program Host, KUSC Classical 91.5 FM, Los Angeles


"The developers at Mouse King Media produced a beautiful solution with the Nutcracker Musical Storybook. The story is elegantly illustrated by Yoko Tanaka to enhance Tchaikovsky's symphony orchestral pieces. There are also hidden sounds for young fingers to find on screen. The first time Reina and I read the story, she kept saying, "Wow!" and "Cool!" and, "Baba, Clara must be dreaming." We were particularly enchanted by Tanaka's illustrations for the Waltz of the Flowers."

Christopher Lay, Beijing Kids Online
