Another week, another free iOS app is headed your way thanks to Apple’s Free App of the Week promo. This time around it is a gorgeous story book for kids which usually retails for $2.99 on the App Store, but as mentioned earlier, can be downloaded absolutely free on your iPhone or iPad till Thursday.

Everyone’s heard of Red Riding Hood, but what about Green Riding Hood? Well, this particular story is an exclusive by developer Bobaka, and is a beautiful spinoff of the original fable that has been passed down a generation of children. If you have children inquisitive about interactive new stories, Green Riding Hood could be the perfect fit.

Of course, the big question here is that what’s different here? Demanding a $3 price tag normally, you can’t expect the title to re-play the original story now can you?

“Here you will find a beautifully drawn and animated story about a little girl, her Grandma, their animal friends and a hungry Wolf. But don’t be afraid. In this spinoff of the famous classic fairy tale by Charles Perrault and Brothers Grimm the Wolf won’t have to eat anyone.”

So as it stands, there’s no eating poor ol’ granny if your kids happen to take things too seriously. To keep things interesting, along with a developing story line of course, there are a bunch of mini-games to be enjoyed while strolling through the woods so-to-speak.

Some of the key features and aspects of the title includes:

– CUTE CHARACTERS that will make your family have a hearty laugh!

– BEAUTIFUL GRAPHICS made by an award winning illustrator Andrey Gordeev whose portfolio includes Cannes Lion and ADC Global awards.

– GREAT ANIMATIONS to whisk you away to a magic world!

– FUN MINIGAMES that will cheer up and entertain kids and adults alike.

– GRANDMA’S COOKING BOOK with plenty of recipes for a healthy and balanced diet.

– EXCELLENT VOICEOVER recorded by Alistair Findlay — a Scottish actor whose filmography includes such classical movies as “Highlander” and “In the Name of the Father”. Children’s apps fans know him for his narration in the acclaimed Nighty Night HD apps series.
