Ratings and Reviews
...and that's where the accolades come to an end. Terrific story with a good message about being comfortable in your own skin and how jealousy isn't a feeling that will help make things better.
The app itself, is almost garbage. Cute however, crude illustrations are the least of this developers issues. The controls can be vague if not downright confusing. I'm not sure what would be a more suitable word to describe this tale but, "interactive" is rather lofty as there is little to no interaction with which to engage upon.
These types of books are ones which I would enjoy seeing more of on the AppStore. However, it's one such as this which could bring a bad name to lot in general.
Love this story...it's a great parable that children can relate to. Even though it seems geared towards younger children, I am totally planning to have my pre-teen son and teenage daughter check out this story so we can have a discussion afterwards!
I gave it four stars because the story is good and the illustrations are pretty good too, but the UI is a bit hard to figure out (although it works once you do), and the text font and color are horrendous!
