An animated storybook app designed for preschoolers. Interact with Larry to progress the story and be delighted by his reactions to your touch. Perfect for bedtime.

"Even after a year of reading books we could touch, the 'Larry' books still really set the standard for truly original and innovative use of the medium" - Digital Storytime

Created especially for touch screen technology. Early readers are invited to play an active role in the story, poking Lazy Larry to wake him, and are rewarded with rich interactivity. As surprising and wonderful this is for the reader, it’s not so much fun for poor Larry and the reader learns of a better way to make him happy at the end (a special social outtake for kids). Sure to delight and entertain the whole family!

"Teaches the children about what is appropriate behaviour socially and physically, it encourages their emotional development positively and it is just a beautiful story for all to enjoy." - Carrie Chetcuti, Director Home Road Kindergarten

A good start

This is a nice little app. The best bit is that it's read by an Australian, so your kids won't start talking like Americans! The interactivity is good, but I would like to see more variety in future editions. The story is also a little short.

A good effort though. Look forward to future apps.

Lazy Larry

Lovely story that I’ve had and shared with children for at least a couple of years, but now it won’t play on my updated iPad. Please update it so it is compatible with iOS 11.

4 Sept 2018. Yay!!!! Thank you so much for updating Lazy Larry Lizard! The children and I have missed him, and are thrilled that we can read him again.

Hi, Lazy Larry Lizard is now updated and runs on the latest iOS. Spread the word! Graham Nunn, Wasabi Productions.

Entertaining, teaching skill and patience

This story is not only entertaining and immaculately illustrated but great fun for the kids. Larry has helped my twin grandkids develop their iPad skills and, as an extra, the need for patience. While Larry reacts to being 'poked' at any time, it remains best to wait patiently until you're invited to 'poke' him after each page has been read. A highly recommended app for young kids - and their adult carers. The kids can't get enough of Larry. To enhance the educational value of the product, I would hope that future stories become longer and that the plot develops progressively.
