Stories to play and tell!

The series

Story Tale is an animation and strip cartoon stores created by Lewis Trondheim and José Parrondo. It tells the story of a dad, who tells stories! Every night he tells a story, and each story starts off pretty bonkers, but as it goes along it gets weirder and weirder as his children—a son and a daughter, troublemakers both—interrupt him and ask for changes.
The game Story Tale is the adaptation of these strong points.
