About us

We are The Story Mouse (UK) Limited and we love telling stories! In fact, we love telling stories so much that our friends often asked us to use our range of voices to make recordings of all those fairytales and stories we grew up with for their own children. The stories were a big hit, so we decided to expand the catalogue and make them more widely available. And so, The Story Mouse was born.

The Story Mouse app offers a selection of the best traditional stories, fables and fairy tales from Hans Christian Andersen, Beatrix Potter, Aesop and more. All the titles in The Story Mouse app are beautifully illustrated, narrated by professional broadcasters and come with the options of “Read it to me” or “Read it myself”. 

Bertie the Guinea pig, a character exclusive to The Story Mouse joined us in the autumn of 2011 and in early 2012 we published our first animated apps. We add to our catalogue of titles with fresh material all the time so come back regularly to see what's new.

The Story Mouse is based in the United Kingdom and you can get in touch with us here: We love getting feedback as this helps us to make the kind of apps and stories you want to see.
