“Nosy Crow is to fairy-tale apps as J. K. Rowling is to wizards’ tales — both are masterful. It’s no surprise then that Snow White, Nosy Crow’s newly released fifth app, is brilliant.”
— USA Today
Nosy Crow has won two 2015 IPG Independent Publishing Awards!

— The Independent
“The Secret Hen House Theatre is one of my favourite books of recent years … If anything I enjoyed the sequel even more.”
— Books for Keeps
“Seven- to 10- year-olds will laugh themselves giddy over Pamela Butchart’s My Headteacher is a Vampire Rat … The book is as accessible as it is hilarious, with entertaining line drawings from Thomas Flintham and easy-to-read prose that cleverly sneaks in the odd tricky word.”
— The Independent
Nosy Crow has won two FutureBook Innovation Awards!
We’ve won Best Children’s Fiction Digital Book, for our Jack and the Beanstalk app, and Most Inspiring Digital Publishing Person, awarded to Nosy Crow’s founder and Managing Director, Kate Wilson.

— Kids App Central
“Fleur Hitchcock has cornered the market in hard-boilers for beginners … There is much to like about this pacey story. Lottie is a bright and ballsy character and Sophia a suitably kooky sidekick.”
