Children will love the sense of wonder and discovery,while adults will certainly appreciate the clever and wacky humor.

Hansel and Gretel - Epic Tales animated storybook is the first in a series of tales as told by Silvertongue, the likeable dwarf and storyteller, and is now available on the Appstore for IPad and IPhone.

Hansel and Gretel - Epic Tales animated storybook offers a world filled with whimsical characters ranging from pesky gnomes to witty dwarfs; from brave children to wicked stepmothers and cunning witches.

"But we are not just another fairytale App," says Paul Hanraets, founder and producer. "What sets EPIC TALES apart from other storybooks are the incredible production values. Each of EPIC TALES storybooks are digitally hand-drawn by our award winning animators, and offer stunning 2d animations, professional voice acting, original music scores and ambient sounds by game industry veterans. These elements combined offer spellbinding interactive environments that are sure to draw readers even deeper into the story."

"Of course, our alternating witty and wacky humour and the high quality of our animations are amongst the things that separates Hansel and Gretel from other storybooks," says creative director Albert ‘t Hooft."However, what ultimately distinguishes EPIC TALES is the implementation of our central storyteller, Silvertongue the dwarf." Using the magic of pesky gnomes, Silvertongue brings the stories to life and narrates them."Silvertongue used to be quite the adventurer, travelling the world in search of the most intriguing tales and stories, and now looks after your storybook collection in his humble bookstore. He is a truly gifted storyteller who can take an audience from a gasp of fright to a roar of laughter in just the twist of a phrase."

EPIC TALES™ is a series of high quality, interactive fairytales that allows you to not only enjoy enchanting tales, but to experience their magical worlds more closely than ever before. Children will love the sense of wonder and discovery,while adults will certainly appreciate the clever and wacky humor.
