If you’re lucky enough to have received an iPad, iPod Touch or iPhone for Christmas, and are looking for some apps with which to fill it, look no further!
Accolades for our Little Red Riding Hood app have been piling up in the last month – it’s been included in Best of the Year lists by the App Store, The Observer, Kirkus, and School Library Journal – and to cap off an excellent year, it’s also been shortlisted for a Digital Book Award!
The awards (previously known as the Publishing Innovation Awards) are designed to celebrate innovation in apps and ebook publishing, and Little Red Riding Hood is competing in the category of Best Children’s App, against a very strong shortlist – here’s the full list of nominated projects:
The Adventures of Captain Underpants (Scholastic)
Axel’s Chain Reaction (Allison Pomenta)
COWZAT! (Colour Me Play)
Goodnight Moon Storybook App (Loud Crow Interactive)
Little Red Riding Hood (Nosy Crow)
This is the third time we’ve been recognised in this category, after winning with our previous fairytale app, Cinderella, at the 2012 awards, and being shortlisted with Rounds: Franklin Frog at the 2013 ceremony, so it’s something with special meaning for us!
