"Little Red Riding Hood is rather marvellous: a children’s book-app that impresses with its technical chops, but more importantly with its firm focus on storytelling and reading skills." - The Guardian
"They are the Steven Spielberg of apps" - USA Today
"Delightful" - The Sunday Times
“Quite possibly the best children’s story app out there right now." - The Independent
Welcome to Little Red Riding Hood - What's YOUR version of the story?
Our Little Red Riding Hood app is a completely new take on the classic fairytale: for the first time ever, users can create their own story by choosing from multiple paths along the way, resulting in a new, fully-animated adventure with different endings every time.
Built with an innovative, user-generated narrative structure that immerses a child in the story, Little Red Riding Hood re-invents interactive storytelling. Readers play games to help Little Red Riding Hood collect three different objects in the course of her journey through the woods, choosing what items to gather at forks in the path. These objects determine how Little Red Riding Hood defeats the Big Bad Wolf and saves Grandma.
A revolutionary new form of non-linear narrative storytelling, with eight different routes through the tale – a sort of multimedia, animated 21st Century Choose-Your-Own-Adventure
Nine different games and activities embedded in the story
Innovative forms of interactivity: blow into the microphone to blow dandelions and a whistle; see yourself in a magical pool with the front-facing camera; tilt the screen to pour honey into a jar, and drag, swipe, tap and zoom to take part in the story and explore more of every scene
Rich and detailed artwork from the creator of Nosy Crow’s award-winning Cinderella and The Three Little Pigs apps
Fully animated: characters are constantly on the move
Hundreds of lines of dialogue for fifteen characters voiced by child actors
Hundreds of interactive touch-points
Original music by BAFTA award-winning composer, Robin Beanland
Text-highlighting to support emerging and early readers
Optimized for Retina Display and the iPhone 5.

Ratings and Reviews
Excellent - highly recommended!
Nosy Crow takes all the high-quality style and features of their previous apps and takes it up another level with the choose-your-own-adventure style choice of paths through the forest. The way your choices influence the final showdown with the wolf is very clever. The characters are really well thought out, there is tons of interactivity using tilting, swiping, camera & microphone which all adds to the story. A joy to use & come back to over and over to find new paths through the story. Excellent stuff!
Why can't all apps be like this?
Bought this excellent app for my 4 year old daughter. It's so refreshing to see an app which has been so carefully designed and which is so enjoyable. The drawings are fantastic and the interactivity is well-considered. She loves it and always comes back to this app as soon as she gets given the ipad. There's so much rubbish out there for kids, so why aren't more gems like this where we can feel our children are enjoying something of real quality, rather than throwaway nonsense?
Little Red Riding Hood by Nosy Crow
I now have 3 Nosy Crows, and they are all of a high standard. They work well with me/my 3-year old grand-daughter and I have been using the other two for a year. She loves/hates the Big Bad Wolf, who features in Three Little Pigs and of course this one. This one's clever because you choose your route (and what happens) at road junctions.
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
