Dragon and Wolf - An Interactive Children`s Book

Beautifully illustrated Russian storybook app ...

Dragon and Wolf Treasure is a storybook about two little boys who go on an imaginative adventure. It is filled with colorful illustrations that are really gorgeous, along with lots of lightly animated and interactive elements that are polished and mostly story-related. The app is also solidly made, with great settings that let you choose any page and even expand the text boxes for easier reading. So why such a low rating overall? It's simple - this storybook was originally created for a Russian speaking audience (see the Russian version under 'other versions' tab above) but has not been well translated. It may have been a more or less literal translation, but it is not polished or interpreted well for an English speaking audience. The voice over is also terrible, with such a thickly accented English that it is difficult to understand at times. While this app is free, I recommend downloading it for the lovely graphics. Text can be hidden & narration turned off for a delightful, wordless picture book experience. The text story isn't half bad either, but my advice is to skip the narration until they provide a native English voice-over in a future update.

This app has been thoroughly evaluated by our staff. Please click on the 'star ratings' tab above, to see how it fared in all nine of our rating categories. See synopsis tab for more details about the storyline.

All reviews are of the app, not the platform/device. Based originally on iPad versions. Minor technical details may vary.
