I absolutely adore this!
The story of Sleeping Beauty is my favorite and I was looking for a application that would tell the story with beautiful illustrations which this does. It's well worth the money. Thank you so much to the developer for making this. Please keep this in the App Store for all time I will be recommending this.
The illustrations are gorgeous, the narrator's voice crisp and clear. I like the feature of highlighting the words as the text is read. I agree with another commentor that it would be nice if more pages combine art and text.
Latest update fixed issues with ios 4. Great book, only wish you could see the pictures and hear the words being narrated at the same time.
