Our story follows the adventures of three children who, while all misfits, each have special talents. Talents they can’t quite control yet…

* Oliver is an orphan who loves to draw
* Celia is a confident and gifted writer
* Eugene is a sci-fi nerd who loves making gadgets

The children win a trip to Weirdwood Manor to meet their reclusive hero — the eccentric writer and inventor, Arthur Weirdwood. Naturally, there’s also a robot butler, a ghost boy who haunts the Manor, and a librarian with more than a couple secrets of her own to hide.

Full of mystery and adventure, our story aims to inspire children to celebrate their uniqueness, recognize their talents, and embrace their imagination.

“The Incredible Tales of Weirdwood Manor” was born out of 5 complementary objectives:

* Tell a great story
* Foster a love of reading
* Promote playful interaction
* Challenge the mind
* Inspire creativity

But most of all, we wanted to bring ‘play’ to storytelling.

We love this game! But....

I’ve had this app for several years and thoroughly enjoyed everything about it. The artwork is especially pleasing and the hidden objects and puzzles add a great element to the story. I very seldom buy a game or in app purchases and kept putting off the inevitable purchase of the remaining books. I played thru the first two books a couple of times and each time decided I liked it enough to break my rule. But It wasn’t until my 5 yr old granddaughter got interested enough to actually play the game and needed my help that I finally bought the remaining 4 books. She is so excited, as am I, that we can continue this adventure!

Imagine my frustration as she skipped happily away to her Princess Tent to open book 3, and I picked up my iPad to start over from the beginning and play clear through the whole series, only to find that my purchase of the last 4 books is not recognized!! What’s up with that?? I can’t find a place to tell the app that I already purchased them! What kind of a rip off is happening here?

Developer Response ,

Hi there, glad to hear you and your granddaughter are such big fans! Please send an email to and we’ll help you restore your purchase of the other four books.

I can’t wait any longer....

Dear Developers,
So in your response to a reviewer you stated that the second volume would be coming out that spring/summer. That was 2 YEARS AGO... I know that coding and development is a pain and not easy, but when you tell your fans to expect the next stage out in a few months, and 2 yrs later, we’re STILL waiting, you lose those who’ve held on! Like myself!
I absolutely love this book! I can’t find any other book out there that’s as interactive, interesting, creative, as this one! I’ve had this app on all my iPads for more that 3 yrs. I’ve sent requests asking how much longer and get the same response!
Please release the second app!

To anyone who hasn’t played this interactive book.. GO NOW AND DOWNLOAD IT!
There are things in every scene to do so make sure you pay attention and find all the hidden items in each scene! You must play this one before playing the new one when they finally release it! It will play off of the ending of the first volume.. this one..
Good luck on your search of Weirdwood Manor! See you in Volume 2... If it ever comes out!

Btw, Please dot give an app or game a 1 star review because you can’t figure out how to pause or skip! That’s ridiculous!
