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.
What a wonderful thing it is to see this book brought to life after all these years! The video is a great added bonus.
The Tiger who came to tea
Great book (a 5) but for some reason the full video no longer plays on my iPad. Tried researching but no luck. Any ideas welcome
