App Store Description

Featured on the UK App Store's What's Hot list for over a year.

“Ingenious software design” and “lively, fluent prose…” (Kirkus Reviews)

“...written with fairy tale–appropriate language and imagery while raising contemporary issues of class and power. Sharp-eyed users may note allusions to traditional tales in the beautifully detailed pencil drawings…” (The Horn Book)

"The illustrations are beautiful, detailed and engaging." (Parents' Club of Palo Alto and Menlo Park)


Witches have LONG wanted a tight lid kept on this fairy tale. Many a story elf risked life and limb to tell it! This kingdom may look familiar from a distance, green and glittering, but it is not. An infestation of witches darken the skies at noon, and vulnerable villagers suffer cruel spells that only princesses suffer in other tales!

No one is safe here.

Young Prince Jeremy may have wished to be born somewhere else, somewhere simpler. Yet, with an entire kingdom hobbled by short-tempered witches, he cannot avoid the truth. Will he risk ruffling royal feathers and his position in the castle for the good of these peasants?

As you read, an exclusively elven story dimension called The Couplet will allow you to travel back and forth between book and kingdom. So, please settle into 70-fully illustrated pages of story, 35 elven Couplets and a fairy tale that has waited EONS to be told.

Before and after the fairy tale, there are more stories to enjoy.
* “The Story of the Story” recounts the vexing situations that arose as the elves crafted this tale: elven rules ignored by a stubborn writer elf, a critical flaw found by Joble, the editor elf, and a thrillingly tense meeting in the forest with angry elf elders defending tradition and threatening the fate of the book.

* Additionally, from his leafy treetop office, Tristan the tarsier explains how readers can become “The Last Character in the Story.”

* And, “The Next Story” peeks into several private journal entries regarding a newly spotted character—suggesting a new story for the elves.

Read on! Discover if the inn keeper’s sweet pup, scads of innocent children, shopkeepers and farmers and Princess Eleanor (yes, a princess is among the snoozing spellbound) ever break free…
