Customer Reviews

not as described

I bought this app after purchasing the "Monster at the End of This Book" app with Grover. My grandkids loved the Grover book and I thought this would be the same quality. It takes far too long for the pages to load and there really isn't a prompt for the kids to turn the page. If you don't turn, there is continued talking, but then the next page doesn't match the story. Don't buy until they have corrected the wait-time problem. NOT the product I expected!

My kids love this book!

Cute, interactive graphics in the book. I like that you can have it read to you. It highlights the words as it reads. The kids also liked the creative art portion of the app! They liked creating their own pictures (using the iPad camera and "create" portion of the app) to draw on their photos.

Great Fun But a Bit Wonky

This app is solid, all-around fun and funny. Entertaining for young and old alike. The only negative is that it has a tendency to hiccup on my phone (iPhone 4). Sometimes the sound drops, scenes skip or it just crashes. When it works, it's great; when it doesn't, it's a bit frustrating. But it definitely works much more seamlessly on the iPhone 5.
