Customer Reviews

A very amusing app!

This story is loaded with laughs and many great activities that both my boys, 4&6, really enjoy! The small asterisk located on the bottom of many pages helps my little guy know that there are sounds that will play when tapped, this is a great feature. Another great feature is the page menu that allows my boys to go directly to their favorite pages! As with all apps from this developer, the illustrations, expressive narration, storyline and quality features are amazing. As a family, we throughly enjoy this story, have shared many laughs and will never look at a fly the same way again. This app will have great replay value!

As a parent, I love and appreciate the guide notes that are included, there are many great ideas to be found there. We now have 6 apps in the series and this has been a great addition to our storybook digital library. I would HIGHLY recommend this app!

great book!
