Could Peter Rabbit be cheekier? With Me Books, you can make him as naughty as you like. This nifty app for iPad, iPod Touch and iPhone lets you and your youngsters play in and with some of the world’s greatest children’s stories, from Beatrix Potter to modern classics like Peppa Pig.

The app is free and so is the first Me Book. Each book is narrated with charm by the likes of Richard E Grant, Sir David Jason, Adam Buxton and Josie Lawrence – but if you think you can do better, it’s easy to rewrite your own, one-of-a-kind version.

Kids can add interactive hotspots to the text and illustrations to create their own stories and sounds.

Using Me Books patented ‘draw and record’ technology, you and your kids can create interactive hotspots to record your own stories and sounds – you can even record up to three different versions for more than one reader’s satisfaction.

There are heaps of great titles available, from vintage Ladybird to modern faves like Charlie and Lola. They even have a selection of Christmas titles just in time for Santa’s visit.
