Jack and the Beanstalk (interactive browser story) by Epiphany

We're very used to seeing interesting stories developed as e-books or apps, but when we spot something eye-catching that's designed to run in a browser, we still like to take a closer look.

With a fantastic visual style, retelling a classic story, Jack and the Beanstalk is an instant attention grabber. Produced by Epiphany for the Time4Sleep Bed Company, it's a rare example of something promotional that can be enjoyed and experienced by parents and children alike.

Viewers are given the choice of a fairly 'straight' telling of the story, or a rhyming version. Both allow a parent or child to read through a brilliant version of a well loved fairy tale.
