Helping kids get lost in books
and find their passion for stories
With bigger and better adventures, the platform offers a unique and educational interactive storytelling experience for kids aged 3 to 14+ who often feel like they’re playing a game when they’re actually reading a 30,000-word book!
The Living Novel has been praised as an incredible tool to engage reluctant readers — kids who might not otherwise pick up a book.
From being awarded the Best Interactive Content by the Youth Media Alliance to being named the runner-up App of the Year by Apple, our first release, Weirdwood Manor, has been widely recognized for revolutionizing the way kids’ interactive stories are told.
Learning through play
In a landscape awash with products marketed as “educational,” the Parents Choice Foundation recognized our work with it’s Silver Honour for its originality of design and purpose, long-term learning value, and long-term play value. It’s a testament to our focus on harnessing the power of learning through play.
