Mouse and Elephant become friends

“That is such a smart mouse, I can’t believe it. Do you want to know what he did? You’ll read that in the first story,” Elephant says. The story of giving birth to their friendship is published as an iPad app on the App Store.

“Mouse & Elephant become friends” is the moving story of Elephant going for a walk to the lake but then gets trapped in a bad situation. There he meets Mouse and they end up being friends. In the story there are animations and sounds that children can playfully discover.
This app provides a delightful adventure for young children, with fun animations and sounds. Children can listen to the narrator (UK, IT, NED), but also an adult can tell the story. The beautiful illustrations of Lea Vervoort offer a lot of space to tell the story of Mouse & Elephant in your own way .

About the author Liesbeth Helsdingen
Liesbeth is a teacher living in The Netherlands. She loves writing. This story is the first from a series of seven books written by Liesbeth Helsdingen (1963). Liesbeth teaches at a primary school. With great pleasure she tells stories to the children every day. One day she decided to write her own story. It had to be recognizable for the children but also educational, funny and touching.
