We’ve created Princess Petal and the Trapdoor, a new interactive children’s story exclusively available as an app for the iPad. It blends rhyming verse, wonderfully narrated by CBeebies (BBC) presenter Cerrie Burnell, with graphics children will love and sound effects & design they will love to hear and play. Throughout the story are fun things for children to touch, while the story’s strong female character makes it a feisty and modern take on the traditional princess story.
Available now in the app store for £1.99 – here’s a link.
We’ve coupled the classic format of the princess story with immersive sound design, hoping to create an atmosphere a child will want to revisit again and again. Also, its simple navigation and choice of reading ‘on my own’ or having the story read to you, makes for a perfect bedtime story or as ‘any-time’ entertainment. The rhyming text is specifically designed to be memorised and encourage the exploration of new words.
