* GIGGLE APPS REVIEW - "Without giving anything away, I simply loved the ending of this book, especially the last few interactions as well as a moment at the end which has a very effective melancholy feel, leaving my son momentarily speechless. After a few seconds, he said, “That was a really good story.” "
* DIGITAL STORYTIME REVIEW - "This is not just a book for children, either. It has beautiful hand-drawn illustrations that made me immediately call my father (who is an artist) to get him to download it for his own enjoyment. It's just that unique and enchanting."

Unexpected and terrible ending!
This app started out fantastic! Cute story, lots of fun interactive buttons. I was imagining some fun ways to use this with my youngest music students. Then I got to the end and imagined the students crying because of the tragic ending. So disappointing!
I'm not sure what the first reviewer is upset about. I think this little interactive story is delightfully entertaining. Would I like the story as much if it was a paper paged book? Probably not. Without the doors opening and the musician beginning and ending with a tap it wouldn't be worth the purchase. However, every child (from 2-7) I have shared this with has loved swiping to turn the pages and tapping the doors, buses, bridge, balloons and musician to see what will happen. Totally worth $2! Most people spend more than that on coffee and you only get to enjoy that once...
Ignore other reviewers
Not sure what some have against this app - it's beautifully illustrated, a fun story, limited, but appropriate interaction, and noone dies in the end, so please don't put false reviews up that will turn away parents looking for something to read to their kids. This does not even hint that anyone dies - that aside, Rock-a-bye baby, hansel and gretel, pied piper and ring a ring a Rosie are all very popular stories and nursery rhymes that have far far more ominous tones than anything contained in these e-pages.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
