“The Tallow Candle” comes to life on iPad and iPhone for the first time

In October 2012, two centuries after it had been written, one of the first fairy-tales ever written by Hans Christian Andersen was discovered in a filing box in the National Archive of Funen by the Danish historian Esben Brage.

Today, The Tallow Candle becomes an interactive app for iPhone and iPad by Timbuktu.

The story has been re-written to make Andersen’s themes shine even more in present days. The writer probably wrote The Tallow Candle when he was still a teenager. Yet, his passion, faith, and language  make this story a small jewel in the history of fairy tales. Enjoy it with your kids through this beautiful interactive book, available in English and in Italian.
