THE TALE OF KITTY-IN-BOOTS by Beatrix Potter
CHILDREN'S
Released: Sept. 6, 2016

"A winsome story despite its flaws, this will leave readers hoping that Potter left more unpublished gems in the vault where it was discovered. (Picture book. 4-8)"

THE ANIMATED TALE OF BENJAMIN BUNNY by Beatrix Potter
written and illustrated by Beatrix Potter, developed by The Wundershop
CHILDREN'S
Released: Aug. 11, 2012

"Though not quite the equal of Loud Crow's spectacular Beatrix Potter adaptations, this does give the tale a fresh reboot—respectful enough to retain the full text with its corporal punishment and smoking references. (iPad storybook app. 5-8)"
Benjamin leads his sick cousin Peter into another traumatic outing to Mr. McGregor's garden in this cozy if not quite streamlined digital rendition of the 1904 classic. Read full book review >
THE ORIGINAL TALE OF PETER RABBIT by Beatrix Potter
CHILDREN'S
Released: Nov. 24, 2011

"By taking a kitchen-sink approach, Penguin has made a fine, abundant app that easily earns its official status. But there's a better app out there that makes reading the story even more enjoyable and that makes this one pale in comparison. (iPad storybook app. 3-8)"
While it's not the most elegant, magical app translation of Beatrix Potter's most famous work, this expansive edition throws in everything it can to reproduce and enhance the original text. Read full book review >
THE STORY OF MISS MOPPET by Beatrix Potter
CHILDREN'S
Released: Oct. 28, 2011

"Potter's story of an abusive relationship between Miss Moppet the cat and Mouse is given short shrift in this shoddy, derivative app. Readers will be left feeling teased and unsatisfied, even if they're unaware far better Potter apps exist. (iPad storybook app. 3-8)"
There's homage and then there's pure imitation, and in this adaptation of Beatrix Potter's cat-and-mouse tale, the developer has clearly studied the template created by Loud Crow Interactive and created a cheap, off-putting knockoff. Read full book review >
POP OUT! THE TALE OF SQUIRREL NUTKIN by Beatrix Potter
CHILDREN'S
Released: May 12, 2011

"While Peter Rabbit was a groundbreaking app, this one suffers not at all from building over the same template: It is elegance defined. (iPad storybook app. 2-10)"
Not as stunning or surprising as Loud Crow Interactive's previous Potter adaptation, The Tale of Peter Rabbit, its take on her subsequent, squirrel tale is nevertheless a clever, faithful retelling. Read full book review >
JEREMY FISHER by Beatrix Potter
CHILDREN'S
Released: Feb. 18, 2011

"High production values and a story-centered design give this a leg up over flashier, more game-like e-books. (iPad storybook app. 4-8)"
Potter's tale of a hapless frog who sets out to catch a minnow for dinner and almost ends up being dinner himself gets several useful extras in this unabridged app. It also receives a design upgrade that increases the original's cramped trim size and eliminates its blank pages while pairing text and pictures more closely together.

IPAD BOOK APPS

"Elegant, easy to navigate and beautiful, it combines the best of print and digital. (iPad storybook app. 2 & up)"
Startling in its mix of digital and traditional book design, Loud Crow Interactive's first iPad book app translates the text and illustrations of the Beatrix Potter classic into electronic pages that appear to live and breathe beneath readers' fingertips. Read full book review >
