Book Apps | Elfishki and The Unwelcome Guest


This is another magical Elfishki tale. A land where magical things happen all the time! In the story book section it is a great lesson in acceptance and tolerance for all. A lesson we can all hear again as a reminder. The Elfishki land is a friendly and magical place. An unexpected and unwelcome guest shows up unannounced!

The game section is a challenging job that kids will love. You get to pack up Jeanso’s suitcase! It is challenging but you can do it! It took me a couple of times but it was fun to see it come together. You may not see the item you need so my solution was to skip it cause it may turn out to be under something else. You will have a chance to find it again 🙂 My grandson loves the end of the game! If you say no to helping you will get a funny surprise that makes you laugh, like him 🙂

What was the initial inspiration for Elfishki and The Unwelcome Guest?
About 2 years ago, and artist and a friend of ours, Inessa Kirianova, send us a link to a set of adorable fairy tale creatures she created. Her own three kids simply loved them and she was just telling us how they cannot get enough of these characters and wanted to hear our opinion.

Just as we were looking at beautiful images, our son Gabriel, who was five at the time, was walking by, saw the creatures and asked us what they were. So my wife, Elvira, who is a published author of historical fiction and several children’s books, just for fun came up with a quick story about how these two creatures, Pickly and Ginger, a brother and sister, were fighting over a giant cherry, which grows in the Far Away Magical Land. Gabriel was so fascinated by the image and the story that from then on he demanded to know everything about these creatures and the magical land they live in.  So, Elvira had to come with more and more stories, and Inessa had to send over more and more of her wonderful images. Then one day we realized that if our own kids loved these adorable creatures and our stories, we had to share them with other kids, so they can have a little bit of magic in their life. And that’s how Elfishki were born.

The 2nd book in the Elfishki Series is Elfishki and The Unwelcome Guest.  The first one – Elfishki and The Giant Cake has been out in the iTunes Store since December and have received numerous awards and maintains a perfect 5 star rating!

All of our interactive books are tested and approved by own kids (many times over and over again) before anyone else sees them.

What is your favorite aspect of your app?

Our art and our stories are definitely my favorite aspect the app.

Our animation and our images are all drawn by hand where each frame is created individually, which makes everything more vivid and life-like, just like a cartoon.

Besides for being fun and engaging, all of our stories have a special and unique feature—there are no bad characters in the text. Every character has his or her perspective.  By reading our fairy tales, children learn to appreciate the differences in the points of view and figure out a way to come up with win-win solutions.

Another great aspect of our apps is that every single one has a FREE game!  In The Giant Cake we have “Decorate The Cake” game, where your child can decorate the cake as he/she pleases and then share their fantastic creation by e-mail.  In The Unwelcome Guest we have “Help Jeanso Pack his Backpack” game, which tests your child’s attention to detail and acuity skills.
