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

Such a shame

Great book but unfortunately the full story doesn't work!!!! Please fix!

Not working

To Judith Kerr, my 2 star rating is in no way reflective of your classic book. In my house we have numerous copies and the book is my wife's favourite book from her childhood.

To the programmers, the full video does not work, the book/app crashes, the images seem unstable and the links to suggested books do not work.

Shame really.
