The Bookseller’s FutureBook conference and awards took place on Friday, and we’re incredibly pleased and proud that our Goldilocks and Little Bear app won the award for Children’s Digital Book of the Year!
Goldilocks and Little Bear was part of an incredibly strong shortlist (including Harry Potter Enhanced Editions and Pottermore Presents, both from Pottermore) and it is an enormous privilege to have the app recognised in this way. And we’re also very proud to have won this FutureBook award for a fifth year running: last year, our Snow White app won the prize; in 2014, it was awarded to Jack and the Beanstalk; in 2013, to our Rounds: Parker Penguin app; and in 2012, Cinderella won the award.
Our Goldilocks app features a unique, interactive new form of storytelling: you can rotate your device at any point and experience the dual stories of Goldilocks and Little Bear. It’s the classic story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears – as you’ve never seen it before! While Goldilocks is in the bears’ home, eating their porridge, sitting in their chairs, and sleeping in their beds, Little Bear is in Goldilocks’s family’s home – eating their pancakes, wearing their clothes, and reading their books. You can enjoy each story in parallel, individually, or however you’d like – you can toggle between the two narratives at any point.
