Mr. Wolf and the Ginger Cupcakes has a simple to use, intuitive and fun interface that allows a quick and satisfying navigation, without getting in the way of the book experience.
“We strongly believe that no matter the technology used, the most important thing about creating engaging children’s books is the quality of the reading experience” says BlueQuoll co-founder Vincenzo Pignatelli. “We think that story reading goes a long a way in fostering that special relationship between parents and children and we didn’t want to dilute this important aspect of the experience in our apps. This is why the core of our App experience is an artistic and enchanting narration for parents and children to enjoy together over and over”.
Mr. Wolf and the Ginger Cupcakes can be experienced in two modes:
Read to Me – plays like a movie, pages turn and text is read automatically by narrators. Ideal for younger readers and pre school children.
Read it Myself – read the story like a real book. You control the turning of the pages and the text is not read aloud. However you can tap the text to hear it, if you want.
