Follow Red Riding Hood as she makes her way through a perilous forest to bring her grandmother lunch in hopes of helping her feel better and discover the wolf in her place. The classic Little Red Riding Hood gets a makeover in this beautiful 3D book app for the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. Enter a world that springs up before your eyes and allows children & adults the chance to interact with this beloved story as never before.

Stunning. If I had to sum up this app in one word it would absolutely be stunning. Everyone in our home, including Littlebug and Turkeybird loved reading & interacting with Red Riding Hood. First of all, the illustrations/graphics were gorgeous and adding the unique feature of 3D made it that much more incredible. The story literally jumps of the screen. Having viewed it on both iPhone and iPad I can honestly say they are both wonderful and readers will still enjoy the interactive features just as much on both. What my kiddos loved the most was definitely the wolf with his features that come to life as you touch them, but they also thoroughly enjoyed the book being read to them.

This was a wonderful book app to have the opportunity to review. From the 3D aspect, the graphics, the story and the interactive portion each element came together to make a stunning addition to our book app library. Personally I also appreciated the fact that the story is taken from the original Grimm’s Fairy Tales and doesn’t shy away from the more gruesome details, but makes it palatable & kid-friendly through the use of graphics & interactivity. A perfect fairytale for mid-day reading that both children will appreciate for it’s fun factor and parents will love because of it’s educational value.

The Sweet and Savory Sum-up: A stunning 3D world comes to life with the classic story of Little Red Riding Hood that both children and adults will love.

Thank you so much to the developer, PopIris Books from Ideal Binary, for providing this book app for review! Connect with them on Twitter and Facebook!
