Ratings and Reviews

Luscious and generous offering.


This is a great app, particularly because Apple haven’t sorted the iBook store for New Zealand yet. My 2 year old girls adore it, and start every day by walking into our room and demanding “Angus”. Every page has plenty of interaction options, they love the Milk Tanker in particular, and of course the farting. The last page always has them commenting “What a racket!”. Also pleased to see that the app has been updated at this early stage, pleased to see it getting better!

Best app in ages


A big hit with our two kids (4 and 8). We downloaded this after friends recommended it and our kids have played it non stop, especially the youngest.
It's a lovely, simple story told with great warmth and humour. Who knew sound effects could be so hilarious?
Everything about it feels really high quality (the animated artwork is wonderful) and works a treat on the iPad.
Highly recommended.

Just Delicious!


It such a lovely story and has such beautiful artwork! It's so hard to find a great childrens book that has so much to discover along the way. It's great that you can turn off the narration or the text so that you can read it in a way that suits you.

Beautiful work. I hope Watermark do another book soon… I'll definitely be waiting for it!
