A philosophical story for all ages!
In ‘A Distant Journey’ we learn about Elephant, who tries to run from his deepest wishes. We also meet his friend Squirrel, who is deeply concerned about him. And then there’s this weird tree, hidden in the faraway desert…
With hand drawn illustrations, lively animations and a beautiful soundtrack an engaging graphical story emerges, based on the original text by Dutch author Toon Tellegen.

ABOUT YIPYIP KIDS
At YipYip Kids we make child-friendly apps and games. Often with an educational character, but sometimes also purely for the pleasure of a special digital product. Previously, we worked in our children's apps with illustrations by Fiep Westendorp (Jip and Janneke) and Marit Törnqvist (Fabians Party), published by Querido. We do our very best to create inspiring apps for children and their parents, with stories and games that stimulate the imagination and invite you to a conversation. And perhaps most importantly: we do not allow advertisements from third parties or in-app purchases in our products for children.
‘A Distant Journey’ is an initiative of Gwen Stok (Gwenst) and YipYip, in collaboration with Querido Kinderboeken. Development is made possible by the Dutch Foundation for Literature and IMG Festival.
