GivingTales App Launches With Celebs Reading Hans Christian Andersen Classics

Some of the world's leading actors have joined forces in a new children's educational project called GivingTales. It aims to produce engaging and entertaining versions of popular children's fairy tales while helping to teach and educate children worldwide. As part of the company's mission to educate and support children, GivingTales kft is committing 30% of its revenue to Unicef UK to help children around the world.

Developed in association with Sir Roger Moore, a Unicef Goodwill Ambassador, GivingTales features the voice talents of world-renowned actors including Ewan McGregor, Unicef UK Ambassador, Stephen Fry, and Dame Joan Collins. Hans Christian Andersen's timeless fairy tales have now been modernised, condensed and paired with vivid illustrations that capture the universal and timeless life lessons synonymous with Andersen's stories.

Available for free download starting today on Apple, Android, and Windows Phone 8 mobile devices, the app comes with The Princess and the Pea (Sir Roger Moore, KBE). Each additional story is available for download at $3.99 each. Three additional stories are available in the first series: The Emperor's New Clothes (Dame Joan Collins, DBE), The Little Match Girl (Ewan McGregor, OBE) and The Ugly Duckling (Stephen Fry).

Today's children are increasingly accustomed to consuming content in one short sitting. While paper books may be giving way to digital versions, classic fairy tales never grow old. There's a big need to adapt traditional stories into shorter, animated versions, so they can captivate and inspire another generation of young readers.

GivingTales was developed by an award-winning team of illustrators and producers. The company's founders have a history of developing digital entertainment content, having developed Top Ten apps for both Apple App Store and Google Play. GivingTales is currently available in English with plans for additional stories, actors, and titles being made available over the coming months.
