Instructions Included

I just wanted to address the user who reported that this book app was not very intuitive: There is a lot to this book app, including a wonderful rhyming story, a treasure hunt, and moveable items, sounds and actions on each and every page. There is a lot to do, and some is not immediately apparent, but the book app DOES include a set of instructions that explain the navigation, how to use the book app, and how to access a “cheat” overlay that shows all the hot spots in the app for those having trouble finding items to tap. Otherwise; it is a lot of fun to explore as you read the story; enjoy the surprises, and look for hidden treasure… it’s part of the fun!

What a fun Pirate book!!

My family absolutely loved this book app! It is a very fun and entertaining story, with wonderful artwork. My boys love Pirates stories, so this was a great choice for us. They thought it was very cool to be able to have a book on their I Pad, that would do so many fun things. My kids love that they can interact with the book and make the anchor splash, the Pirate ship move, and the parrot fly across the page. The Pirate X-ray machine was my favorite! This family will be singing the Pirate Ode for a long, long time. Great job!!

Great Story and Interactive

My kids have LOVED this story (I have four children ages 3 to 10) and how many things they can do in it. They love searching for clues. Even my children that love to read, enjoy having the story read to them. The voice reading the story is very engaging.

I do wish that my kids could listen to the story and make the images move at the same time. The audio stops when the images are tapped.

I have NO regrets from this purchase. So great!
