The enchanting story of Sophie and her extraordinary tea-time guest, updated and interactive for a new generation of parents and children.

Customer Reviews


What a wonderful thing it is to see this book brought to life after all these years! The video is a great added bonus.

Excellent, despite the missing video

This is my favourite children's iBook. The story is superb and so is the narration. The animation is cute and perfectly suited to the style. Like the other reviewers have noted, the video at the end doesn't work, but its only a compilation of the animations on each page, so you don't miss out on any content. Highly recommended.

Wish I had of read other reviews

My daughter was so disappointed when none of the videos worked! It looked so good after watching the sample so I bought it before noticing the reviews. Not even one of the animations on each page worked. what a waste of money
