Oliver Jeffers is FANTASTIC
Oliver Jeffers books are wonderful in story and illustrations. Kids and adults will love the stories that can be read on so many different levels. He has a talent of making simple stories very deep! His illustrations are wonderful to take in day after day after day!
He is an author with a creative talent - definitely check out his other books as well - haven't found one yet that didn't make my kids (and me) smile! And I love that we can now enjoy his books interactively with the ipad app!
Love his books!
All his books are a treat, and now the same beauty is interactive! The boys can't get enough of the iPad, and now they get to read and play with one of their favorite books too!!
Buggy app, not worthy of the story
This app still has much digital noise - blocky images from the next page seeing through the previous page. Also, unresponsive interactive images. Penguin has been seeing these comments since 2011 but seems union lined to fix them. Just buy the book.
