Tales for Great Grandchildren is a picture book app for iPad from JJ Books which brings the magical experience of reading a traditional illustrated hardback into the 21st century. In this collection, aimed at children aged 7-12, author John Jackson has brought together 13 tales from India and Nepal which he encountered on his travels thirty years ago. The Tales feature a boastful turtle, a talking lotus flower, and many other memorable characters which children will want to return to again and again.
Beautiful colour illustrations by artist Daniela Jaglenka Terrazzini - which recall the 'golden age' of Arthur Rackham and Edmund Dulac - have been subtly animated, and John Jackson's narration is available in a 'read to me' option.
